Brenda Steenblock

Aug. 6, 1940-Aug. 6, 2018

Brenda Steenblock, 78, died peacefully in her sleep on her birthday at South Peninsula Hospital on Aug. 6, 2018.

Brenda was a wonderful compassionate person, who was loved by her family. She was a loving daughter to her mother Jerry, and cared for her until her death. She gave her love and energy to her brothers, sister, nieces and nephews. Family was her life.

She arrived in Homer in 1972 with her brother, sister and her family. She started out as a Spit Rat, camping and working the slime line at Icicle Seafoods. After the summer, Brenda started work for Dr. Eneboe and later moved to the business office at South Peninsula Hospital, where she stayed and made lasting friendships until 1989. She began work at Homer Senior Citizens in 1989 where she stayed until she retired in 2006. After retirement Brenda enjoyed family, friends, gardening and reading.

She also volunteered at the hospital and senior center.

Brenda is survived by her sister, Robin Daugherty, of Homer; brother, Terry Steenblock, of Boise, Idaho; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father; brother, Robert Steenblock; brother-in-law, Mike Daugherty, and nephew, Kevin Daugherty.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to Haven House, Hospice of Homer or Homer Senior Citizens. Services will be held at a later date to be announced.

Arrangements were with Homer Funeral Home.
