Longtime Soldotna resident Ebba Anasogak-Wetherelt died Sunday, Jan. 27, 2008, from terminal lung cancer at her home. She was 63.
Memorial services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Funny River Bible Church, 33344 Brown's Lake Rd. in Soldotna. Pastor Joel Poe will officiate. Light refreshments will follow the service at the church.
Mrs. Wetherelt was born Sept. 13, 1944, to Nicholas and Ruth Anasogak in Koyuk. She moved to Anchorage when she was younger and later moved to the Kenai Peninsula in 1980. She was a homemaker who enjoyed fishing, berry picking, sewing, knitting and crocheting, family gatherings, clam digging, cooking and baking.
"Everyone that knew her knows she always spoke her mind. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Her friends and family always knew her as 'Dipper.' She loved to cook and collect recipes. She would never cook the same meal twice within the same month. She also was a collector of porcelain dolls," her family said.
Mrs. Wetherelt was preceded in death by her parents, Nicholas and Ruth Anasogak; husband, Robert Wetherelt; sister, Sarah Scott; and brothers, Roy Anasogak and Harry Napayonak.
She is survived by her brothers, Oscar Anasogak Sr. and his wife, Georgianne, and Abraham Anasogak Sr. and his wife, Jessie, all of Koyuk; sons, James and Roy Beaver and Bobby Napayonak all of Anchorage; daughter, Patricia Partin of Soldotna; grandsons, Douglas Beaver, Brandon and Larry Partin all of Soldotna; and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.
