Kenai resident Judith Yvonne "Judie" Everson, 65, died Wednesday, March 24, 2010, at Heritage Place in Soldotna.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. She was buried in the Kenai City Cemetery.
Ms. Everson was born March 22, 1945, in Placerville, Calif., to Kenneth and MaryAnn Everson. While living in California, she became a licensed barber. In 1992, she moved to Alaska to be closer to family.
She loved to create and make crafts. She was also an avid crotchetier and could make anything anyone wanted in crochet.
"Judie was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and aunt to a family that loved her and will always remember her infectious laugh and Mexican cooking talents. Her love of family and friends will be greatly missed," her family said.
"Judie was the best big sister a girl could ever ask for and will be greatly missed," her sister Pati said.
"She is the greatest mom and my bestfriend and will greatly missed," her son Chris said.
"May God continue to hold her close in His arms and warmly welcome her to His house now. Rest peacefully Mom and know I love you and will be with you in the Kingdom of Heaven. Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. -- 1 Cor. 15:18," her daughter Nichoel said.
