Homer resident Alberta June “Abby” Warren died at her home Wednesday, May 18, 2016, with family present. She was 87-years-old.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, June 3, 2016, at South Peninsula Hospital’s Long-Term  Care facility, 4300 Bartlett Street. No flowers, please, due to allergies.

Abby was born in Erie, Colo., on July 28, 1929. She was the oldest of six children to David Goodard and Ruth Sappington Goodard. She and her brothers and sisters grew up in small mountain towns near Boulder, Colo.

Abby Moved to Homer in 1969. Throughout her years in Alaska she worked as a cook in various restaurants in Homer and Anchor Point. She was well known for her seafood, clam chowder, tartar sauce and other delicious recipes. She also did a great amount of volunteer work over the years at the Pratt Museum in Homer, and Helping Hands, Senior Center, Chamber of Commerce in Anchor Point, to name a few.

For the past few years Abby lived at South Peninsula Hospital’s Long-Term Care. Although a tough move for her at first, she grew to think of it as her home and grew to love the dedicated men and women who cared for her on a daily basis. “We cannot thank them enough,” her family said.

“Abby is a very important, strong, and loving force in the lives of those who call her sister, cousin, aunt, Mother, Grandmother or friend. She will be missed more than words can say,” her family said.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Inez and Star; and her brother, Ralph.

She is survived by her children, Barbara, George and wife Sandy, David and wife Laura; grandchildren, Adam, Shonna, Tracy, Liz, Katie, Ben and Amelia; great-grandchildren, Alex, Maggie, Cody, Jessica, Erica, Jacob, Eviana and Carmen; great-granddaughter Faithlyn; and her best friend Betty George, as well as various relatives.
