 Elizabeth Butkovich
May 23, 1920 - February 27, 2011




Anchorage resident Elizabeth Butkovich, 90, died of natural causes Feb. 27, 2011, at home.

A visitation will be at noon Tuesday, followed by a service at 1 p.m., at Evergreen Memorial Chapel, 737 E St. Elizabeth's nephew, William Nicholson, will officiate. Interment will be in Dillingham.

Elizabeth was born on May 23, 1920, in Kanakanak. Born and raised in the Bristol Bay area, she moved to Anchorage in the early '50s. She retired from the Diamond N Cannery in South Naknek. Elizabeth enjoyed gardening, RVing, traveling, clamming, and snowmachining with her husband, Karl, and brother Laurence in their younger years.

Family states: "Clarks Point, Lake Clark and Lake Clark Pass were named after her grandfather John W. Clark. She was the last living grandchild of John W. and Natalia Clark and the daughter of Hans P. Nicholson, a Danish immigrant, and Feodora Clark Nicholson, a Native Alaskan. Elizabeth was the last living child of Hans and Feodora.

"A lifelong Native Alaskan she was known to the family as 'Queen Elizabeth,' the true matriarch of the family. She definitely would let you know the way it was; and yet, she had a heart of gold and helped and loved the family in so many ways. She was the 'rock' for many and will be missed by all."

Elizabeth is survived by her sons, Herman Herrmann Jr. of Seattle, Wash., and Dennis Herrmann (Lois) of Naknek; granddaughters, Debbie McGonegal (Kelly) of Wasilla, Teresa Robbins (Rob) of Anchorage, Barbara Abrams (McCormick) of Anchorage, and Kelly Samuelson of Anchorage; great-grandchildren, Jamie Oliphant (Brant) of Juneau, Katie Robbins (Richard Langford) of Anchorage, Jesse Kristovich of Anchorage, and Farren and Jake McCormick; great-great-grandchildren, Trinity and Troy Langford of Anchorage; nephew, Hans Nicholson (Danesa) of Wasilla; nieces, Cathy Hokanson (Doug) and Sharon Young (David) of Anchorage; and extended family including Kay Herrmann Skeen of Wasilla and Billy Myers of Anchorage.

Elizabeth was preceded in death by husband, Karl Butkovich; parents, Hans and Feodora Nicholson; and siblings, John, Emma, Mildred, Herbert, Elmer and Laurence.
