Death notice: Bea Shepard

Posted: November 6, 2013 - 1:01am

Bea Shepard passed away Nov. 1, 2013. She arrived in Juneau in November of 1946. She arrived to work with the Territory of Alaska’s Health Department in the lab. In her free time she cleared land and built a home, plus she was a founder of the camp at Mile 28. Bea loved being out at camp. In the early 1970’s, she was a lay preacher at Douglas Community United Methodist Church. After 31 years in the state lab, she retired to start a new chapter in her life. Her retirement years were full of activity. Bea was very active in her church at all levels. She was an advocate for getting the title to the land of the Eagle River Methodist Camp and money for the state museum in the legislature. Up until her passing, Bea was still doing the things she loved. She had just come from working at the Aunt Claudia’s Doll Museum, which she started. Her service will be Nov. 30, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Douglas Community United Methodist Church. An obituary will follow closer to the time of the service.
