Kasilof resident, Virginia "Kay" Sundvik died Sunday, March 28, 2010 at her home in Kasilof with her husband by her side. She was 69.
A Celebration/Potluck of Kay's life will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 3, 2010 at the J - Bar - B, located south of Soldotna.
Mrs. Sundvik was born Oct. 29, 1940 to Darrell and Lucille (Hoisington) Bond in Tacoma, Wash. She moved to Alaska in February of 1982, living in Anchorage for a year, Homer for seven years and Kasilof where she has lived up until the present. Kay was a bartender for more than 20 years. She loved painting, reading, and playing cards.
Her family writes, "Kay was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great grandmother."
"She came with a lot of baggage" said her husband of 34 years.
Kay loved Alaska and especially her family of choice in Kasilof. Her friends always said, "They were two peas in a pod, once you see one, the other was close behind. She came to Alaska in 1982 as a cheechako, but she leaves as a sourdough. Her love of life, her laughter and her smile will be missed very much."
She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Richard Bond.
She is survived by her husband of 34 years, Richard Sundvik of Kasilof; sons, Brett Seibold of Portland, Ore., and Steve Sundvik of, Olympia, Wash.; daughters, Tara Bochantin of Orville, Calif., Karlene Newsom of Pocatello, Idaho, Staci Brooks of Olympia and Susan Kucera of Anchorage; and sister, Nancy Preston of Seattle.
