Homer resident, Ms. Margaret Leilani Alfiche, 60, died Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021 at South Peninsula Hospital in Homer, Alaska.

Private services will be held at a later date.

Margaret was born Jan. 3, 1961 at the Tripler Army Medical Center Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. She graduated from Kahuka High School in Hawaii. She moved to Alaska in June of 2009 living in Homer. Margaret worked for Starvin’ Marvin’s Pizza from 2010 to 2012. She worked for the Sports Shed in 2012. She also worked for Kachemak Wholesale and most recently Safeway. She loved gardening, cooking, baking, and sewing.

The family wrote, “Ma, already missed in our hearts forever. We wouldn’t have the morals, common sense, self-protection, sarcasm, and love we do if it weren’t for you. So many people know you as their Ma. She worked so hard and so selflessly for everyone she met. She made anywhere and everywhere feel like home. As we’re lost and finding our places again, we can remind ourselves how we love you and you love us. You’ve helped so many and we are all so thankful, we love you.”

She is survived by her sons, Christopher Alfiche of Homer and Keoni Alfiche of Homer and grand-daughter Anela Kerns.
