Twenty-year Homer resident Ingibjork (Inga) Jona Thordarson died Sunday, June 22, 2003, of medical complications and sarcoidosis at her home in Homer. She was 40.
Memorial services will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, commencing at Bishop's Beach and will be followed by a celebration of life at Duggan's Waterfront Pub.
Ms. Thordarson was born May 28, 1963, in Pennsylvania. She was an accomplished chef and cooked in several of Homer's restaurants. She cooked for the last eight years at the Homer Senior Citizens Center. Although she had little money, she was extremely generous, often cooking huge quantities for her friends and their families.
"If she could have, she would have fed the world. Inga had a great sense of humor, still laughing, despite the challenges life threw at her. She was a devoted mother and partner, creating a warm, loving home," her family said.
Ms. Thordarson is survived by her partner, Mike Stehman; sons, Dylan, 8, and David, 5; and her Icelandic family and friends.
Donations for the children may be made to Wells Fargo, account No. 3898335009, 88 Sterling Highway, Homer, AK 99603.
Arrangements were made by the Homer Funeral Home.
