Judith A. Dockey, 71, of Oakmont passed away on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 after a long, heart-breaking battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Beloved Wife for 50 years of James M. Dockey. Loving Mother of James P. (Christine) Dockey of Fox Chapel, Jeffrey B. (Dawn) Dockey of Charleston, SC, and Jennifer D. (William) Seislove of Southbury, CT.

Sister of Jack R. Anderson of Pittsburgh. Judy grew up in Sharon, PA, raised her family in Wyomissing, PA, then lived in Bethany Beach, Delaware, before moving to Oakmont. She earned a teaching degree from the University of Pittsburgh where she played flute in the Pitt Concert Band and met her husband, Jim. The Pitt legacy is strong in her family as her three children were 4th generation graduates. She taught elementary school until devoting all of her efforts to raising a family. As a homemaker, a wife, and a mother, she was strong, capable and tireless, always striving to make everything better. She had a flair for decorating, cooking, and entertaining.
