Memorial services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, June 5, at Inlet Faith Assemblies of God on McGahan and Marie streets in Nikiski. Pastor Dale Lloyd will officiate. Her ashes will be buried at a later date at Brush Memorial Cemetery in Brush, Colo.
Mrs. Bass was born Dec. 9, 1940, in Brush. She worked as a dispatcher for Rides in Brush and also as a cashier in Cranes Cafe in Brush.
"Mom, Grandma and Evelyn would not want us to cry. After a fight of a lifetime, she finally rests in peace without pain. Mom radiated a light and love as precious as life itself, and this touched everyone she knew. Her nature was to comfort and care for you, which she shared even on her last day with us. Mom, Grandma, Evelyn, you are missed, cherished and loved," her family said.
Mrs. Bass was preceded in death by her son, Bryan Turnbull; father, Bryan Bass; nephew, Mark Bass; and mother, Edna Bass.
She is survived by her daughter, Tonya Libertus of Kenai; son, Jeffrey Libertus of Canyon City, Colo.; sisters, Betty Herbst of Brush and Cathy Anthony of Norcatur, Kan.; brothers, William Bass of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and Jim Bass of Fort Morgan, Colo.; grandson, Chance Percival of Kenai, Bryan Percival of Syracuse, Kan., Cameron Percival of Kenai and Mark Libertus of Kenai; nine nieces and nephews; and numerous other relatives.
The family prefers memorial donations rather than flowers to be sent to the family at 5791 Kenai Spur Highway, Kenai, AK 99611. The money will be used to help pay for travel expenses for the family to bury her ashes.
