Longtime Homer resident, Mrs. Heather Donette Todd, 54, died Sunday, Dec. 22, 2019 at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer.

No services will be planned per Heather’s wishes.

Heather was born Jan. 5, 1965 in Oakland, California. She graduated high school and furthered her education, attending a tech school for a little while. She moved to Alaska in 1998, living in Homer. She worked for South Peninsula Hospital for 10 years as a CNA in Long Term Care. She was also a Homer property manager for almost 10 years. Heather loved gardening, fishing, carving and hunting.

The family wrote, “Heather had a fantastic sense of humor and an incredible work ethic, always doing her best to build up everyone around her. After moving to Homer in 1998, she served her community at South Peninsula Hospital for over a decade in long term care, before moving on to property management for many years, until her illnesses eclipsed her ability to work. She was always looking for ways to help others, and most enjoyed hunting, fishing and tinkering with her husband, gardening, and playing with her grandkids. She was handy with a carving knife and made beautiful diamond willow walking sticks in addition to making the best smoked salmon around with her best friend, soulmate and husband, Mark. She will be loved always and is survived by three sisters, two brothers, two daughters (and their husbands), four grandchildren and her husband. “

She is survived by her husband, Mark Todd of Homer; daughter, Amy (Philip) Jones of Homer; grandson, Kenyon Jones of Homer; granddaughters, Madison Jones of Homer and Lindsey Jones of Homer; daughter, Genelle (Ezra) Butters of Wasilla and granddaughter, Kahleah Butters of Wasilla.
