Delores (Dodie) Ann Koerner & Russell George Koerner Passed Away at 81

Murphys, CA...Russ (81) was born and raised in Mt. Pocono, PA. He was enlisted in the Air Force from 1954 – 1958 as a jet engine mechanic. Dodie (81) was born in Hastings, NB. They both eventually made their way and met each other in Murphys, CA. They blended their two families when they married in November of 1976.

They lived in Vallecito, CA until Russ retired from the CA Dept of Forestry as a Fire Captain, and Dodie retired as a school bus driver. In 1994, they moved to Salmon, ID, where they chose to raise two of their grandsons – Michael & Randy. They always loved the outdoors and hoped to spend more time hunting and fishing, but health issues kept them closer to home. Dodie finally succumbed to those issues on August 3, 2017. Shortly after, Russ also lost his fight on September 2, 2017.

They are survived by their son Ray (Annette) Koerner of Salmon, ID; daughter Janice (Bill) Horton of Jamestown, CA; many grand and great-grandchildren; brother Shell (Sandy) Koerner of CA; and sister Betty (Len) Kuchinskas of PA.

There will be a private family service held at their gravesite in CA at a later date.

Thank you for your service for our nation.

How sad and sweet all mixed together, broken hearts are back together.
