Former Nikiski resident Barbara J. Shull died Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2006, in Albany, Ore., of cancer. She was 57.
Her ashes were spread in McKercher Park in Brownsville, Ore.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at the United Pentecostal Church in Kenai. Pastor Stu Churchill will officiate. A potluck will follow.
Ms. Shull was born Dec. 30, 1948, in Sweet Home, Ore.
She served her country honorably in the U.S. Army and retired from the Internal Revenue Service as a revenue officer.
She enjoyed butterflies, decorating cakes, knitting, crocheting, crossword puzzles and playing board games with family and friends.
She was a member of the Lions International of Nikiski, Veterans of Foreign War and the American Legion.
“Barb had a heart of gold. She was always willing to help someone in need, to cheer you up with a smile, laugh or give a sarcastic comment. She was loved and will be missed by every who knew her,” her family said.
Ms. Shull was preceded in death by her father, Norman Peterson; and mom and stepfather, Bonnie and Lloyd DeBoy.
She is survived by her daughters, Missie Souza and her fiance Joe Gamber of Nikiski, Tonda and son-in-law, Ed Sutton of Kenai, and Leesa Little of Anchorage; grandchildren, Chyna and Dalton Conner, Norrick and Navina McGee and Raeliana Feik, of all Kenai; sisters and brothers-in-law, Norma and Richard (Shorty) Thornton of Nikiski and Nancy and Mike Berkey of Sedro Woolly, Wash.; brothers, Richard Peterson of Albany, Kenneth and wife, Shelly Peterson, of Kenai and Norman (Bruce) and wife, Melanie Peterson, of Albany; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be sent to Evergreen Hospice in Albany.
