Alicia Gail Corner
Kasilof resident Alicia Gail Corner died Wednesday, March 30, 2005, at Heritage Place with her son, Dan Galloway, and a close friend by her side. She was 59.
A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, at the Kasilof Community Church with Paul Kupferschmid officiating.
Mrs. Corner was born in the Bronx of New York City on July 30, 1945. She received her education in Blaubelt, N,Y. She moved to Alaska from 1974 to 1977 then back to New Jersey. She returned to Alaska in 1982 with her son, Dan.
"(Alicia) was a member of the Kasilof Community Church, where she was loved by all and known throughout the community as a very vibrant and loving lady. She loved being with family and friends, especially on holidays where she could prepare meals fit for kings and presidents. This was one of her loves and gifts," her family said.
"She will be deeply missed by all those whose hearts she touched. Alicia always made everyone she met feel as they have been close friends. Through all the adversity that she had in life, Alicia showed how a courageous, strong-willed, religious, fair-minded and loving individual should live. She always found ways to smile even to the end. She knew Christ touched her and when God saw her coming home, he had his arms wide open to embrace her. Blessed be her memory."
She enjoyed being with her grandchildren, cooking, sewing, quilting, hosting parties, gardening and reading mystery novels.
Mrs. Corner was preceded in death by her husband, Greg Corner, in 2004; sister, Patricia Hall; brother, Peter Kehoe; mother and father, Grace and Peter Kehoe; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Hahn; and a niece, Lisa Ann Mankus.
