Former Juneau resident Georgette T. Light (Davis), 49, died Dec. 3, 2005, in Haines.
She was born Jan. 17, 1956, in Petersburg. She thoroughly enjoyed a challenge, setting her goals at a high level and meeting those goals. As a homemaker, she had many hobbies and continuously strived to increase her knowledge, whether it was through reading, watching learning channels or doing crossword puzzles. Her love for music led her into a career as a disc jockey.
Family members said, "One of her most favorable traits was giving of herself unselfishly to people in need. She will be missed immensely by her many cousins and immediate family members, as she touched their lives in a special way."
She was a member of the Eagle Wolf clan and a Sealaska shareholder. She resided in various Southeast Alaska communities where she also attended schools in Kake, Petersburg, Wrangell and Juneau, in addition to the Lower 48.
She is survived by her husband, Mark Light of Haines; son, Richard Dorado Jr. of Visalia, Calif.; daughters, Rebecca Dorado of Orange County and Nicole Dorado of Visalia; parents, George (Agnes) L. Davis of Juneau and Leona (Edward) McTigue of Oak Harbor, Wash.; brothers, Marcus Davis of Denver and James Strang of Juneau; sisters, Tracy Bertram of Anchorage, Christina Smith of Juneau and Jamie Larson of Springfield, Ore.; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Services were held Dec. 9 at the Alaska Memorial Park and Mortuary. A reception was held directly following the service at the Glacier Valley Church of God on Thunder Mountain Road.
