Personal Description:

Personal Description:

Judith Mosher was married for 27 years to her husband Mark and has one son, also named Mark. Judith had quite the adventurous soul. Mark, Judith’s husband, shared the story of how she acquired the distinctive patch she wore over her eye. Judith had a passion for motorcycles along with her father. One night they decided to go for a ride and unfortunately Judith was in a severe motorcycle accident that rendered her eye paralyzed and she had to wear a patch over it to be able to walk correctly because it had lost the ability to move with the other eye. Judith adored the beach and collecting shells. Her husband has many boxes of shells to remind him of Judith everyday.

Judith’s professional career started in 1974 serving as a nurse in the US Navy. She went on to receive her AS Degree in Medical Record Technology in 1986. After spending 20 years working as not only a hospital coder, but as a Health Information management Director, she decided it was time to join Kforce on 3/15/06. Her recruiter, Wendy Lester says, “Judith was a great consultant in many ways; she had a infectious positive attitude and always made the clients needs her priority.” In the winter of 2006, Judith share with us that she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Despite the devastating news of having cancer, Judith maintained a great positive attitude and a spirit that was so deeply embedded in her character. She was determined that this diagnosis wasn’t going to get her down. She went through several treatments and luckily went into remission on several occasions. During the times of treatment, Judith always talked about how badly she wanted to return to work. Her goal was fulfilled when she was able to return to work for a few months 2007. But her fight with ovarian cancer would not be over as Judith’s pain and cancer returned in 2008. Judith Mosher, RHIT, beloved wife, mother and consultant passed away on 2/20/08. Please join us in honoring her memory by considering a donation to help fight ovarian cancer.
