Curlene Louise Frostad Harker, 85, went to be with her Lord and family on Dec. 27, 2017. She was born on Feb. 4, 1932, at Anchorage Railroad Hospital and then flew back to Kenai, Alaska, with her mother (no roads then) where they had a commercial fishing site. They moved to Anchorage, Alaska, after their house burned and she graduated from Anchorage High School (now West High) in 1948. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in business administration at University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1953, and later completed all work at University of Alaska Anchorage except the thesis for a master's degree in psychology.
Before her disability, she was very active with Holy Family Cathedral and served as a Lay Eucharist Minister, assisting at mass and delivering communion to shut-ins. She was a member of the Kenaitze Indian Tribe and a shareholder of CIRI.
Cookie, as her brothers named her and family lovingly called her, had a passion for cooking and everyone was welcome at her table. After her children were grown she loved traveling and her favorite trip was to Norway to visit her Dad's relatives whom she had corresponded with for so many years. Her wit and humor will be so very dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by parents, Erling Frostad of Sagvall, Norway, and Louise Darien of Kenai; daughter, Teddi Louise and son Kipley; and brothers, Einar, Norman and Edward. She is survived by sons, Kevin (wife Debbie) and Kerry; grandchildren, Ty (wife Sarah) and Nelson (wife Alyssa); great-grandchildren, Gunner, Bowden and Sawyer; as well as many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by former husband, Ted Harker; and sisters-in-law, Donna Avery, Sheila Everett and Joyce Frostad.
Services at Evergreen Memorial Chapel, 737 E Street in Anchorage, will be held at a later date, prior to interment, at Anchorage Memorial Cemetery.
