Doris was preceded in death by her father, Gerald LeRoy Dougherty; mother, Judy Doris Martin Dougherty; and grandson, Dominick McClees.


Doris was a cherished wife, mother, and grandmother who will be dearly missed.  She loved spending time at Lake Michigan in South Haven, Michigan.  Doris was known for her contagious smile, fabulous hugs, surprise birthday cakes and her unselfish way of giving from her heart.  Doris lived the last years of her life in pain due to a car accident.  Still, she shared her humble spice for life, unique wisdom of the world and loving generosity.  She will be dearly missed by many.


A quiet memorial gathering will be held for Doris at a time when family members are able to attend.  Her friends are asked to contact family for details.
