Doris Lake

November 2007

ASDRA lost a long time friend last week with the passing of Doris Lake.

Doris was a musher who enjoyed the sport, but she gave most of her time to timing races for ASDRA and other statewide events. She would be near the start line of any race and in more recent years could be found in the time tower at Tozier Track.

Beyond the timing Doris contributed our race history with her record keeping. Doris kept accurate records of ASDRA races beginning in the mid 40’s and until she retired. All these were carefully preserved in a notebook which has been turned over to ASDRA.

Doris’s 50th year of timing coincided with her 80th birthday. Doris could tell stories of all the old timers in the sport and enjoyed sharing tales of early mushers including Doc Lombard, the Redingtons, George Attla, Gareth Wright and her late husband Orville Lake.

Doris retired to live near her daughter in Phoenix and spent several vacations in Hawaii. In 2006 she came “home” to serve as the Lady Trapper in Fur Rendezvous. She made short visits in 2004 and in 2005.
