Judith Matilda Lindoff
"Chickie"

Judith Matilda Lindoff (Chickie to her friends and family) passed away in Juneau, Alaska on June 7, 2011 in an unfortunate boating accident with her Long time companion, Rocky Parfitt. Judy was born October 27,
1957 in Hoonah, Alaska. She is of the T'akdeintaan clan of the Head House.

Chickie always met everyone with a beautiful smile, and to family members with a "henno – henno!" Her laugh was so unique and she was easy to make laugh so her cousins would tease her or tell a joke just to see her smile and hear her laughter. She was the center of her brothers and sisters; always keeping in touch with all and helped in anyway she could when they needed her. Chickie's hobbies included crocheting, making jewelry, quilting, fishing, playing Bingo, and shopping at Walmart and Fred Meyer.

A quote from Aunt Judy, "With what little Chickie had, she found it in her heart to care for others and donated so much to so many different organizations. We can all learn from this."

Chickie graduated from the Juneau-Douglas High School, Alaska Vocational Technical Center for Business Occupations/Machines, and the Alaska Vocational Institute for Computer and Office Skills.

Her employment history included working in Administrative Services for the U.S. Forest Service, as an Office Assistant for the City & Borough of Juneau, in the office of Senator Bettye Davis, and as an Office Assistant, Administrative Clerk II, and Tribal Enrollment Clerk for the Central Council Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska.

• Easter Seals • 2011 Easter Seals Disability Services for Alaska • 2011 American Heart Association • 2011 St. Joseph's Indian School • America 2010 American Heart Association • 2010 Paralyzed Veterans of America • Memorial Sloan-Ketterin Cancer Center • 2010 St. Joseph's Indian School
