The graduates will be taking law enforcement positions around the state from the North Slope Borough Police Department to statewide Alaska Wildlife Troopers to the Ketchikan Police Department.

Services for Alice Marie Titell, a Sitka resident for 68 years, will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30, at the ANB Founders Hall.

Alice died Jan. 19 in Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital, at age 72.

She was born Aug. 28, 1945, in Juneau/Douglas, the daughter of Nancy (Jimmy) and Art Littlefield. Her mother was from Klukwan, her father from Sitka.

After graduating from Sitka High School, Alice went to San Diego business college, then returned to Sitka, in 1971. She worked in several departments at SEARHC, then was with Sitka Tribe of Alaska in finance and administration, working at the front desk. She also worked at Sitka National Historical Park in the gift store, and was a dispatch clerk for The Ride.

Alice loved her Native culture, and was active in the Alaska Native Sisterhood, serving as an officer and taking part in many activities. She was a member of the Noow Tlein Dancers and the Sitka Kaagwaantaan.

She liked beading, weaving robes and baskets, and taking photos.

Among her other enjoyments were going on the ferry to Juneau, traveling to Canada with her son Chad and brother Mike Littlefield, going berry-picking, and taking car rides looking for bears.

She is survived by her children, Michael Titell, of Glennallen, and Larry Titell and Chad Titell of Sitka; brothers Mike Littlefield and Pat Littlefield, both of Sitka, and sister Charlene Johnson of Lynnwood, Wash.

Pallbearers for the service are Skinny Young, Jeffrey Young, Mitchell Young and Loren Littlefield. Honorary pallbearers are Ann Marie Johnson, William Kanosh, Josephine Johnson, John Paul and Leonty Williams.

The family thanked Alaska Native Sisterhood, SEARHC, Sitka Fire Department and Sitka police for their help during the loss.

Those wishing to make memorial donations may send them to Mike Littlefield, Box 2953, Sitka.
