Alexandria I. (Johnson) Platt, born Feb. 6, 1972, in Sitka, passed away Nov. 3, 2018, in Palmer. “Angel” was 46 years.
She belonged to the Kaagwaantaan Clan, Box House, Eagle-Wolf, and her Tlingit name was Kooteen. She was baptized Russian Orthodox, and was a former Gajaa Heen Dancer in Sitka.
Angel loved to take lots of photos of the family, friends and the outdoors, and also loved to go dipnetting with her husband Rex and son Brayden. She had taught herself how to crochet, and made many afghans for her family.
Angel had attended Sitka schools until moving to Anchorage. She and her husband lived in Anchorage and Palmer, and she had worked for Carrs in both cities over the past 13 years.
Angel is survived by her loving husband of 13 years, Rex, and their son Brayden, of Palmer; and her sister Michelle C. Wright, brother-in-law Darren Wright and nephew Terrance, of Anchorage.
She’s also survived by her aunties, Cheryl Duncan and Josephine Johnson, both of Sitka; and uncles Joseph C. Johnson Jr., Everett A. Johnson, Henry K. Johnson Sr. and Jacob Johnson, all of Juneau, Norman W. Johnson of Seattle, and Michael P. Johnson of Bellingham, Wash.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Georgiana A. and Nick D. Chercasen; grandparents Joseph C. and Agnes F. Johnson; aunt and uncle Cindy and Tony Johnson; aunties Virginia E. Sam and Audrey E. Johnson;  uncles Art Gamble, Ronald Gamble and Leonard Gamble; and cousins Harry Johnson, Norma Johnson and Rachel Johnson.
Services were held Nov. 18 at Witzleban Legacy Funeral Home in Anchorage. Angel’s family in Sitka will have a 40-day luncheon here.
