Alice "Sandy" Martin Powers Sabo

Alice "Sandy" Martin Powers Sabo, 74, passed away at Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska, on Dec. 6, 2015, after a brief illness,

surrounded by friends and family.

She was born in Wrangell, Alaska, on Sept. 9, 1941, to

Syd and Anna Martin. She was one of eleven children.

She was Tlingit, Wolf, of the Sik'nax.' adi clan's "Red Clay House." Sandy took pride in her Alaska Native heritage and values.

She was the first in the

family to obtain a college degree. Sandy's special interests included family, camping, fishing, smoking and canning fish; all shared generously

with friends. At her home, you could always count on a good meal, a bunk or cup of tea served with spirited conversation.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Carol Ann Kimble; son, Warren Powers Jr.; and brother Ole Martin.

She is survived by children, Sydney Razor and Sandra "Dodie" Powers;

grandchildren, Billy Trent and Andrea Trent, James Powers, Malorie Powers, Vance Razor and Brittney Razor; and

great-grandchildren, Grace Razor and Olivia Powers;

siblings Charles (Joan) Martin, Roy (Pam) Martin, Bunny (Gene) Poole, Dinah Martin, Syd Martin, Patsy

Terhardt, John (Cindy)

Martin, Gunnar (Anne) Gunderson and Frank (Karen) Gunderson; also

special "aunties," Alice Lehnert (102 years old) of Anchorage and Christine Littlefield of Sitka, Alaska.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
