Eva Flossie Pardee of Klukwan and Haines died Oct. 23, 2002, in Anchorage.
She was born in Klukwan on Oct. 15, 1940, to Victor and Annie Hotch.
Eva was preceded in death by her husband Charlie, parents Victor and Annie, maternal grandparents James and Alice Lee, and paternal grandparents Dan and Maggie Hotch.
Eva is survived by her son Charlie Pardee Jr. and his wife Brigh; by grandchildren Valarie, Courtney and Steven Pardee; brothers Steve Hotch and Joe Hotch; and sisters Katherine Shirley and Ruth Lindoff.
Her family said she was a strong supporter of Klukwan. For birthdays, anniversaries, newborn babies, graduations, basketball games, family and friends leaving for school or coming home, she was there with a card, a hug and a smile, the family said.
At her Klukwan ANS memorial service, ANS President Bonnie Sears said, "It will take many of our sisters to fill the spot she has left behind."
Services were held in Klukwan on Oct. 26. A Tlingit traditional 40-day party was held Nov. 30 in Klukwan.
