Daughter of the late James and Frances (Jones) Doherty. She was deeply loved by the Feeley, Fisher and DiMarzio families.


Generations of generosity was the theme of her life and that of her family. She was never alone -- humble, joyous and grateful, caretaker for all. Her unshakable faith and belief in all things taught by her Catholic faith. led her to all corners of the earth. Her missionary work, almost like a great-grandmother, was with her family and friends, the deaf and blind, both near and far. God gave her and she knew her calling. Animals and children brought her immense joy.
