Sadie Jane Huffer, 37, died on Feb. 17, 2023, when a roof collapsed in Anchorage, Alaska, at Turnagain CrossFit.
Huffer was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, and friend. She was born in Spokane, Washington, and came to Anchorage to study at the University of Alaska. After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work, she went on to become a licensed clinical social worker.
Described by loved ones as sensitive, loving, and caring, Huffer enjoyed knitting, picking blueberries, making bread, smoking salmon, and working out at Turnagain CrossFit.
Huffer is survived by her husband, John Paul; children, Tyler, Blaise, and Jane; sisters, Sarah Ransom and Samantha Lamphier; and parents, Denise and Ted Smith.
A memorial workout event is being held by Huffer’s Turnagain CrossFit family on April 8 at 7 p.m. at The Dome in Anchorage. To help Huffer’s family during this time, you may donate here

“Sadie Jane”
AMRAP 23:00
16 shuttle runs (each 25-ft length is 1 rep)
9 bar-facing burpees
3 power cleans @ 185/125#

WOD Guidance:
A new workout on, this one features a fun combo of running, bar facing burpees, and power cleans. The barbell loading should be on the heavier side for a metcon and might feature a couple unbroken sets but quick singles should work just fine. A return of the shuttle run into our lives, this time with each length counting as a rep. This is a long workout, with relatively short rounds – choose a steady pace for this one, and cruise for 23 minutes.
