Marlene Francis Doherty: Aug. 11, 1937 – July 21, 2019



Following a stroke in March and a fall in July, ‘Moe’ passed away comfortably. She was born in Lowell, Mass. She worked as a medical assistant until she joined the Navy in 1958.

She was a hospital corpsman with a specialty as clinical laboratory technician. She retired in July 1978.

She leaves behind a stepsister, Mary Rowe; two cousins, Jackie Brady and Pat Rousseau; her closest friends, Gail and Gillen; her special buddies, Bob and Chuck; her cat, Hazel; and her gold Mustang.

A special thank you to Richard Demmler, M.D. and everyone who works at WhidbeyHealth Primary Care Clinic, Whidbey Home Care, Hospice of the North West and the compassion given by all at Caring Hearts Adult Home in Anacortes.
