A beloved mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, Ryan Mae Huddlestun, 31, left this world unexpectedly on April 4, 2019. She was at Providence Hospital in Anchorage.
Ryan was born in Sitka on October 9, 1987, the daughter of Ken and Patti Huddlestun.
She attended Sitka schools, graduating from Sitka High in 2006. She was living in Juneau at the time of her death.
Ryan was funny, outgoing and vivacious. “We will always remember her infectious smile, thick reddish brown hair and caring personality,” her family said. “Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed.
“When you think of Ryan celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.”
Ryan was preceded in death by her grandparents, Norman and Lourdes Hill.
Her beautiful life will always be cherished in the lives of her children, Jordan Carlos and Benjamin Peavey of Sitka, and Ryan and LilyBella Shattuck of Melbourne, Florida; her parents, Ken Huddlestun of Juneau and Patti Huddlestun of Ketchikan; brother Arik of Ketchikan; sisters Devyn of Sitka, Kamryn Craig of Ketchikan and Hunter of Pflugerville, Texas; and aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
