Former Juneau resident Annita Juneve Ismert, 71, died Jan. 21, 2004, at her home in Woodburn, Ore.
She was born in Enterprise, Ore., on Feb. 12, 1932, to Ben and Helene Bacon. She was a highly respected automotive accountant in the greater Portland area for many years.

Her family said she treasured her Alaska years, staying in close touch with her many friends there. She was an avid garage saler, loved beachcombing and could make any green thing grow.
She was also a skilled craftswoman all her life, and most recently took up quilting. She leaves many beautiful quilts for her family's comfort.
She was preceded in death by her father, Ben Bacon; and her son, Stephen Ismert.
She is survived by her mother, Helene Bacon of Woodburn, Ore.; her daughter and son-in-law, Susan and Ken Lee of Port Orchard, Wash.; her grandchildren, Alden and Amy Lee of Port Orchard, Wash., and Nickelle Ismert of El Cajon, Calif.
