Mabel Lue Logan-Ketterer, "Mae," 65, passed away at home in Wasilla, Alaska, on April 5, 2017. Mae was born on Oct. 13, 1951, in Burlington, Vt. She has resided in Alaska since 1979. Mae has departed us for the kingdom of heaven and she lives on in our hearts and memories. Mae is a caring and loving mother, widow, grandmother, sister, aunt and dear friend to many. Mae's husband, Edward Ketterer, passed away in 2010, and she has honored and loved him every day. She is very active and taught her family fishing, cycling, hiking and downhill skiing. Mae even made sky diving jumps, including a free-fall jump with no static line. Mae is blessed to have accepted Jesus into her heart and has also grown to acknowledge and respect other religions. Mae loves to learn and is an avid reader. She attended Cornell University, achieved an Associates Degree, and was recently considering additional college classes. Mae's work always involved people and art. She is a member of America's Guild of Variety Artists and performed at special events in Alaska and Canada. Mae started her own business as a sales outlet for some of her artwork. Mae was also a Personal Care Assistant (PCA) for several years. As a PCA, Mae supported home healthcare to multitudes in need in the Anchorage, Alaska, area. Regardless of any work or school endeavor, Mae was eternally an artist practicing and playing with various musical instruments - piano, ukulele, guitar and more - as well as drawing/painting, sculpting, crafting - jewelry, dolls and figurines - and writing songs, poems or stories. She was always happy to recite poems over the phone or have houseguests play on a variety of musical instruments. Mae lived a full life and will be missed by all who knew her. Mae is survived by her son, Israel, and daughter-in-law, Mihaela; grandchildren, Bianca and Eli; brothers, Carl and Jerry; and beloved nieces and nephews. A celebration of Mae's life is to be held at a later date. More details will be available here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f49a4ac23a3fa7-mabel. Memorial donations in Mae's honor may be made to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, N.Y., or a cancer charity. Mae's cremated remains will be taken to Hawaii, to be scattered along with the ashes of Mae's dear husband, Edward Ketterer.
