    Evelyn Ann Qakaq Sara, also known as Nevikaq

    and Mom Mo, was born on May 15, 1967 in

    Bethel, Alaska. She was the last child born to

    James and Annie Willie of Napakiak, making her

    their baby of the family. Evelyn was raised in

    her home village of Napakiak where she

    attended school until her graduation in May of

    1988. After high school, she became a mother

    to her beautiful children and, throughout her

    struggles, she remained tough as nails to

    support her family. On March 16, 2007, Evelyn

    married her husband Morten Sara during a

    home ceremony in Anchorage, Alaska. They

    then resided back in Bethel and she started

    working at YK Malone Home where she

    received employee of the month in her

    department a number of times. She was an

    exemplary worker during her time with YK and

    was very attentive and loving towards her


    Evelyn loved the subsistence life. During the

    summer months, she enjoyed going to fish

    camp with her husband and children and was

    an avid berry picker. She always tended to her

    fish and meats and was ever so thankful to God

    and anyone who supplied her with subsistence

    goods. Evelyn also was an amazing and hard-

    working wife and mother at home, making sure

    her family had food and her house was always

    spick and span and laundry folded and put

    away. She was an amazing cook and her family

    had pronounced her the best fry bread maker.

    On her free time, she also enjoyed listening to

    gospel music, going to bingo, and spending time

    with her family.

    Evelyn loved all her children dearly and even

    treated her sisters childrenas her own. Like her

    dad, she always had her house open to family

    and friends, whether it was for the night or just

    a visit, she happily welcomed them in and

    enjoyed teasing or just having daily

    conversations. Anyone who knew her, more

    than likely had an inqeq from her, being the

    wonderful mother she was, she always babied

    everyone, especially her children.

    During the fall of 2013, Evelyn was diagnosed

    with Stills Disease. Although she was sickly, she

    tried her best to stay strong for her family. They

    considered her one of the strongest people they

    knew. She instilled in her family to love one

    another, to not have hatred and to always

    forgive. After 8 months of fighting her sickness,

    God had called her home. Her open heart, jolly

    and soft voice, and all of our precious memories

    together will forever be in our hearts. Evelyn,

    Mom Mo, Qakaq; ourbeloved wife, mom,

    grandma, daughter, sister, aunt and friend; your

    love, your kindness, your strength and

    resiliency, and your beautiful soul will never be

    forgotten. As much as it pains us to say

    goodbye, you are no longer suffering and finally

    reunited with your passed loved ones. Until we

    meet again on that beautiful shore.

    Evelyn is survived by her husband Morten Sara

    and children Frank, Curtis, Ruth, Christina,

    Melanie, Elena, Mikkel, Oscar, & her baby

    Clement; sisters Alice & Walter Brown of Eek,

    Florence & Cezary Maczynski of Bethel, Linda
