Kenai resident Helen D. Hale died Saturday, April 29, 2003, at Central Peninsula General Hospital in Soldotna. She was 75.
At her request, no services will be held.
Mrs. Hale was born June 9, 1927, in Sitka. She was a lifelong Alaska resident and lived in Anchorage, Seward, Kodiak, Hoonah, Tenakee and Big Lake. She loved fishing in Seward, gardening and canning and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be remembered for her work at the old Anchorage Sports Arena on Fireweed Lane, where she and her husband, Jack, put on many show promotions, including the Anchorage Flea Markets, October Fests, boxing and wrestling matches, Ice Capades and music concerts. She especially enjoyed the hockey games that were held there.
"Mom will be missed by her family and friends but never forgotten," her family said.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack Hale; son, Jack Warren Hale; and mother, Pearl Francis Gourley.
She is survived by her daughter and son in-law, Linda and Robert Cutler of Kenai; son and daughter in-law, Richard and Kathy Hale of Westlake Village, Calif.; granddaughter, Brandy Michelle Cissell of Kenai; grandson, Daniel Brent Young of Anchorage; great-grandchildren, Robert, Kiana, Jade and Dakota Cissell, all of Kenai, and Jody Dawn Hale of Elephant Butte, N.M.; and sister, Dorothy Price of Salem, Ore.
In lieu of flowers, the family said a simple act of kindness to a stranger or loved one would be most appreciated.
