Juneau resident Patsy Dustin Jordan died July 12, 2009, after a brief illness. She was 82.
Born in San Antonio, Texas, and raised in Carrizo Springs, Texas, she moved to Cincinnati in 1958 and, with her husband, raised her family and made many lifelong friends.
With the family spread across the world, she chose to settle into Juneau in 2002 for adventures with her younger daughter, Debra, and her granddaughter, Jordan.
Her final weeks were spent in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her oldest son, William, and his wife, Jan.
Her family said she instilled in her children a voracious appetite for good books, good food and good wine - and a sense of adventure. She will be missed by all who knew her, they said.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 39 years, William Eugene Jordan, in 1991.
She was survived by her children, Jennifer Nakayama and husband, Shogen, William Jordan and wife, Jan, Debra Dustin and Matthew Jordan and wife, Sabine; and grandchildren, Jordan Dustin, Erin Nakayama, Katie Jordan and Jessica Jordan.
Memorial services will be scheduled for family and close friends at a later date.
Those wishing to express their sympathies are encouraged to contact the family or make donations to The American Lung Association, The American Cancer Society or the Hospice for Utah (www.hospice4utah.com).
