Edna B. Fisk

Edna B. Fisk

Edna Bernice Fisk of Homer, 94, died peacefully at her home on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Edna was born in Melita, which is now Sterling, Mich., in 1920. As a young woman, Edna was swept off her feet by a serviceman, Toras Fisk, and they were wed in 1943. Toras was the love of her life and they began a wonderful journey together. As adventurous “Pioneers of Alaska,” arriving in Anchorage in 1958, the Fisks finally settled in Homer in 1978. Edna and Toras once debuted on the Victory Gardens program, and built and maintained their personal paradise on East End Road overlooking Kachemak Bay. Edna had a love of gardening which showed in her many beautiful flowers surrounding her home. They enjoyed many activities together such as snowmachining, traveling, bowling, volunteering and many other community events over the years.

Edna had a passion for baking delicious pies from scratch and even had them sold at a restaurant in Seldovia with proceeds going to the American Heart Association. She loved to entertain guests and always had a hearty meal ready at the end of the day. Her amazing sewing skills produced many unique and colorful recycled rugs enjoyed by many. She was a cancer survivor, a Relay for Life supporter and a strong advocate for the American Heart Association.

Edna’s teacup poodle and loyal companion, Puffin, brought her many joyous moments and remained by her side throughout her final journey. Edna will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all, especially her husband, having been happily married for 72 years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice of Homer. A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai
