Family members said her favorite and often repeated quote was: “If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we are apart, I’ll always be with you.”
Mrs. Dougherty’s husband died in 2001.
She was a communicant of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 1021 St. Mary’s Road, Pylesville, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday.
Mrs. Dougherty is survived by three sons, David Dougherty of Pylesville, Michael Dougherty of Drums, Pa., and Dennis Dougherty of Bethany Beach, Del.; two daughters, Joan Kozlovsky of Pylesville and Susyn Van Shura of Bel Air; 11 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
