Helen Lucile Halfacre, 95, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, went to be with the Lord on Aug. 24, 2017. One of six siblings, Lucile grew up on a cattle ranch near Jordan, Mont. After graduating from Montana State University and a brief stint as a teacher, she moved to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1944, where she worked as a civil servant on Elmendorf. There she met and married Bob Halfacre. They later moved to Government Hill, where they built a house and raised their two children, Stan and Lori. After divorcing Bob in the early 1970s, Lucile worked as a Property Manager for the Army Corps of Engineers on Elmendorf until she retired. She continued to live in her house on Government Hill until moving into the Anchorage Pioneer Home in 2014.
Lucile will be fondly remembered by family and friends for her selfless love of family, generosity, strength, stubbornness, excellent cooking and passions for working puzzles and playing canasta, bridge and Skip Bo. She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Helen Kibler; and her siblings, Fred Kibler Jr., Alice Meyer, Keith Kibler and Dean Kibler. She is survived by her sister, Doris Thomas; children and their spouses, Stan and Becky Halfacre and Lori and Gary McNeil; five grandchildren, Ryan McNeil, Erik Halfacre, Rachel McNeil, Andy Halfacre and Caitlin McNeil; and two great-grandsons, Ryan and Isaac Halfacre. Although she led a long life and her passing was not unexpected, she will be sorely missed by her family, for all of whom she has done so much.
The family is planning a yet to be scheduled celebration of Lucile's life for some time during the summer of 2018.
