Former Eagle River resident, Judy Dorscher, 73, passed away of natural causes on June 27, 2012 on her way home doing what she loved to do most, being with her husband, traveling and visiting with family and friends. Judy was born on June 15th, 1939 in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Judy lived in Alaska from 1966 until she retired in 1994 and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1995.

While in Alaska, Judy was a home maker until her daughter reached school age when she became a PBX operator at Humana Hospital until her retirement. She was loved by all who came in contact with her. She always went the extra mile to ensure that everyone was taken care of to the fullest extent from patients to the staff. She always greeted you with a smile and a friendly "Hello".

When not working, Judy loved to bake, read, knit, sew, do crafts and visit with family and friends. She was flawless in ensuring that you always got a birthday, anniversary, and holiday cards by snail mail, not email:.Always the personal touch.

Her caring heart, smile, laughter and love for family and friends will be greatly missed by the lives she touched. She was the "Keeper of the Heart" and would never let you drift away from family.

Judy is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, John; son Johnny and wife Carol: son Jimmy and wife Susan: grandchildren: Autumn and husband Brett, Kaili and husband Devin, Jennifer, Alexis, and John McKinley: and great grand children: Dylan, Cassidy, Lita, and Cristen. She was preceded in death by her daughter Julie Renee.
