Mae "Angaqin" Clow passed away on June 16, 2015, at home with her husband of 51 years, James "Stretch" Ronald Clow, by her side. Mae was born in Barrow, Alaska, on Jan. 21, 1944, to the late Charles and Louise Ahkiviana. She received her wings when she reached heaven, but she was an angel to many that knew her. She was a beautiful person inside and out and always had a kind word and smile to share when she met you. She shared words of encouragement, praise and hope to anyone in need of it and her love was given freely without any judgment passed. She held great pride in her family as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt. She'd like the memory of her to be a happy one. Like an afterglow of smiles when the day is done. Mae will be greatly missed by all. She is survived by her husband, James R. Clow of New Middletown, Ohio; daughters, Barbara and Ricky McMillan of Huntland Tenn., Tracey and the late Ray Wells of Palmer, Alaska, and Tina and Jon Fulford of Fairbanks, Alaska; her sons, Scott Clow and the late Ruth Nicholai of Arctic Village, Alaska, and James and Josselynn Clow of Fairbanks, Alaska; grandchildren, Rachelle (Michael) Whittington, Holly (Curlee) Robinson, Ashley Wells, Kevin (Christy) Wells, Heather (Franklin) Dias, David Fulford, Jon Kyle Logsdon, Kalik Clow, Kalia Clow , Kyle Ahkiviana and Deshawn Clow ;and 14 great-grandchildren; brothers, George and Mary Ahkiviana, Archie (Carolyn) Ahkiviana and James (Garnett) Ahkiviana; sisters, Molly Rosa and Mary Lou Kennedy; brothers-in-law, Bobby (Dottie) Clow, Gary Clow and Tommy (Cheri) Clow; sisters-in-law, Sandy (Paul) Hixson, Susan (Kermit) Lewis, Shirley Lewis, Sharon (Tim) Pink and Deedee Clow; and many, many other nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life will be held at First Covenant Church, 1145 C Street in Anchorage, Alaska, on Wednesday, July 8, 2015, at 1 p.m.
