Alice Love Lind

Nov. 30, 1924-June 5, 2017

Homer resident Alice Love Lind, 92, died away peacefully on June 5, 2017, at South Peninsula Hospital surrounded by loved ones. Alice was born Nov. 30, 1924, in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Edward Felton Kendall and M. Ambra Love Kendall. As a high school senior, she witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, from her family’s home. After graduation, she worked as a clerk in the U.S. Army Finance Office and subsequently for the Civil Aeronautics Administration.

Alice attended the University of Hawaii for two years; she then moved to Marin County, Calif., to finish her education. After receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Child Development, she became a special education teacher.

During a visit to Alaska in 1962, Alice fell in love with the beauty of the state and its outgoing people. She accepted a special education teaching assignment in Anchorage in 1965, where she became known as an extraordinarily effective and gifted teacher. Shortly after settling in Anchorage, Alice met the love of her life, Rangvald (Ray) Lind, and they were married in December 1966.

After retiring in 1978, she and Ray moved to Homer to spend their “golden years” relishing the splendor surrounding Kachemak Bay. She loved cats, travel, lively conversation and good humor. She lived her life with warmth, wit, empathy and gratitude. Although she had no children of her own, she mothered many.

Alice is preceded in death by her parents; her beloved brother, David Kendall, and her husband, Rangvald “Ray.” She is survived by nieces, nephews, cousins and multitudes of close friends.

Her loved ones say, “She has left her love and never-ending wisdom to everyone she met. Our hearts have been tenderly touched. It is time she gets the rewards she so richly deserves. Our hearts are overflowing with great love for her.” They sincerely thank the excellent doctors, nurses and staff who cared for her so lovingly during her final years.

A memorial will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints later this summer followed by internment with her late husband at Fort Richardson National Cemetery in Anchorage.

Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
