SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - A 67-year-old Nevada woman killed in a rafting accident in Alaska is being remembered as a kind person with a passion for the outdoors who lived every day of her life to the fullest.

Karen Todd of Sparks and 69-year-old Cheryl Minnehan of Elko Grove, California were paddling in rapids on the Kongakut River about 600 miles north of Anchorage when their raft overturned on Wednesday. Both women died.

Carol Sewell, Todd’s partner of more than two decades, told KOLO-TV in Reno (https://tinyurl.com/jufd33g ) they had traveled throughout much of the world together, from Egypt to Antarctica.

In addition to traveling, Sewell says Todd’s “passion was outdoors,” hiking and their dogs.

Sewell says friends and family are making plans to celebrate her life. She says Todd was a generous person who was loved by everyone who knew her.
