Former Soldotna resident Evelyn Hilma Bouckhout died Friday, Nov. 18, 2005, at home in Chipley, Fla. She was 83.
A private family memorial will be held at later date.
Ms. Bouckhout was born Jan. 29, 1922, in Manitoba, Canada, to Ernest W. Laski and Mamie Rappana Laski. At a young age she moved with her family to the United States. She spent much of her adult life in California, where she raised her three children. In 1987, she moved to Sterling to be closer to family.
“Family was always grandma’s number one priority, there was nothing that she would not do for her family. She believed that older generations should always protect and teach the younger generations. It is her protection and lessons that will be missed the most,” her family said.
“She was everyone’s grandma and had a smile and candies for anyone who entered her home. She loved every day in Alaska, often saying it was because of her birth in the Canadian wilderness and her Finish heritage that she loved Alaska life.”
Ms. Bouckhout is proceeded in death by her parents, Ernest W. Laski and Mamie Rappana Laski; brothers, Clifford Laski and Herbert Laski; son, Robert W. Bouckhout; and son-in-law Verlin D. Darrow.
She is survived by son, Dana Bouckhout and wife, Linda Bouckhout, of Arizona; daughter, Lori Darrow of Florida; grandchildren, Damon Bouckhout, Christian Bouckhout and wife, Sue, Joshua Bouckhout, Noah Bouckhout, Sommer Marks, Craig Anderson, Bree Marks, Kurtis Darrow and Michael Marks; and great-grandchildren Raven, Lily, Liam, Riane and Mya.
Arrangements were made by Brown Funeral Home in Chipley.
