Marie Annette "Marianne" Imhof Peru Anderson Clock passed away Saturday morning, Aug. 5, 2017, at Providence Hospital in Kodiak, Alaska.
Marianne was born on Aug. 22, 1926, in San Jose, Calif. After her mother passed away, her father moved the family to Vancouver, Wash., where she attended Battleground High School. She married Clarke (Casey) Peru, her high school sweetheart. They divorced after Marianne came to Kodiak, in 1959, to work at the Montmartre Inn.
A professional dancer, she had shows in Lake Tahoe, Calif.; Las Vegas, Nev.; and San Francisco, Calif. Inducted into the Las Vegas Hall of Fame, she was named a legend and honored by her peers.
Marianne was preceded in death by her husband, Nick Anderson; and husband, Tom Clock; her daughter, M. Elena Snider; son-in-law, Merle G. Snider; and her grand-daughter, Demi Alexanderoff Friccero.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Gina and Mike Friccero; grandchildren, Colette Friccero, Eric Friccero and Destin Alexanderoff Fricccero; granddaughter, Stephanie Whittaker; great-granddaughters, Willow and Lilie Wooster; and great-great-granddaughter, Elena. She is also survived by her beloved Rainy (Lorraine) Eggemeyer and Marlyss Eggemeyer; the Thompson family: Barbara, Chuck, Erica and Christina; and many more friends and family members.
In 1982, she and her husband, Tom, opened the first Bed and Breakfast in Seward, Alaska, called Mom Clock's B&B. After Tom passed away, she spent 20 years in Anchorage, living with her best friend, Jeanne Starr, who preceded her in death last year. In 2013, she returned to Kodiak to be close to her family.
Marianne had an exceptionally big heart and loved people, and she was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Those who knew her found her to be a very open-minded, nonjudgmental, person who had experienced the very best of times in Kodiak. She enjoyed crocheting, reading, her little dog Daisy, many adventures and traveled extensively during her life.
A celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017, at 2 p.m., at the Kodiak Mortuary, followed by a brief grave site ceremony.
