RaJa Lorraine Huss, 37, died Sept. 12, 2008, at her home in Anchorage.

RaJa was born Oct. 14, 1970, in Seoul, South Korea, and joined her adopted family in Kotzebue shortly after birth. The second in a family of six children, RaJa was raised in Kotzebue and graduated from Kotzebue High School in 1988. She went on to study fashion design at Brooks College before working in the oil field services industry.
Her boundless energy and love for meeting people led her to a career in the travel industry, most recently as a flight attendant for American Airlines.
RaJa loved the outdoors and spending many happy moments with friends in Alaska rafting, berry picking, biking and walking the Coastal Trail.
Her family said: "RaJa was a loving and caring sister and daughter for our family since birth. She brought order and sunshine into all of our lives. RaJa had the remarkable gift of making and nurturing friendships with hundreds of people all over the world during her travels. She had the gift of an encyclopedic memory for birthdays and anniversaries and each was remembered with a card or a phone call. Her sense of humor and laughter were contagious and helped brighten even the darkest moments. Her love and care of her sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews made her a favorite to each and every one. We were blessed with her caring and bright personality for almost four decades. She will be dearly missed."
RaJa was preceded in death by her mother, Winifred L. Huss. RaJa is survived by her father, Charles Huss of Kotzebue and Anchorage; brothers, sisters and their spouses and children, Amber and Toby Drake, Micah and Judy Huss, Gabriel and Jennifer Huss, Cameron and Daniel Morris and Jordan Huss and beloved nieces and nephews, Callan, Teigan and Mairyn Drake, Ronnie, Austin, Rohyn, Gillian and Buchanan Huss, and Raegan, Ciernan and Caidan Morriss.
