Patricia Marie Dougherty
Patricia Marie Dougherty, went home to be with the lord the morning after Christmas. She passed away peacefully in her sleep due to a heart arrhythmia. Her passing was unexpected and much too soon. Her beautiful soul was a devoted loving mother to six children, sweet and loyal sister to Maggie Coberley, and deeply loved daughter to Albert Patrick Dougherty and Lynda Edie Campbell. Everyone who knew her loved her and felt blessed by her presence.
She was born in Huntington Beach, CAL, and grew up in Vancouver, WA during her teenage years. She then moved to Portland, OR during her 20's until she moved to the Oregon coast, where she resided during the last decade of her life. Growing up as a child she loved and cherished the moments that she spent with her grandma Marjorie. Photography and decorating were two of her passions. She loved stained glass windows and candles. A day never went by when she didn't light one. She had always dreamt of traveling to Europe, especially Ireland, to see the ancient beautiful churches and castles.
Patti loved natural beauty in all forms. Fall, when it is still warm, and the leaves are yellow, gold, and red was her favorite time of year. The large green maple leaves and beautiful roses, sunflowers, and poppies in the summer were a few of her favorite natural wonders. Her spirituality could be felt while in her presence. She said that the beach at sunset, while feeling the warmth of the setting sun, when everything is dry and warm, the sky turning beautiful colors, yellow rays are streaming over everything and watching the wave's crash was her favorite time and place to pray.
Her love was unconditional and she will always be remembered in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
