Anna Marie "Nance" Huber, 78, died April 4, 2010, in Anchorage.

A service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Holy Family Cathedral.

She was born Aug. 28, 1931, in Centralia, Pa.

Her family wrote: "Nance, a lifelong Alaskan resident, passed away Easter Sunday. She enjoyed an adventurous life -- traveling the world, enjoying the great outdoors, building a remote cabin, camping, and fishing (where she usually caught the largest fish). She also delighted in her hobbies: ceramics, knitting, and crafts of all sorts.

"Upon arriving in Anchorage, she taught catechism at Holy Family Cathedral and was an administrative professional. Once her family began to grow, she dedicated her life to her three children and was a devoted and loving wife to her husband of 57 years, Frank."

Nance is survived by her husband, Frank; son, Mike and his wife Kerry; and two grandchildren, Mason and Erin of Brisbane, Australia; son, Jeff and his wife Shannon; and grandson, Brandon of Wasilla; sisters, Rose Darrah and her family of Pennsylvania, Marijo Ramsdale and her family of Pennsylvania, and Dorothy Calhoun and her family of Texas; and a very large and loving extended family with numerous nieces and nephews throughout the Lower 48.

Nance was preceded in death by her daughter, Carole; sister, Helen; and parents, William and Josephine.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to Bethesda Assisted Living Home, 2721 W. 69th Ave., Anchorage 99502.
