Catherine (Tierney)'s Story
Mrs. Catherine (Tierney) Doughty of Lanesville (formerly Salem, Danvers and Fort Collins, Colo.), devoted wife of David G. Doughty Jr., passed away following a brief illness on October 3, 2017. She was 61.
Born in Salem, Cathy was the daughter of the late Albert R. and Doris H. (Gelineau) Tierney. She was a 1974 graduate of the accelerated program at Salem High School where she was a National Merit Scholar, and earned her Business degree from Salem State College.
For many years, she enjoyed a rewarding and successful career in the banking industry where she held various management positions of increasing responsibility at a number of North Shore and Boston financial institutions, eventually rising to the level of senior vice president at Fleet Bank.
Upon retiring from banking in 1997, Cathy and her husband, David, traveled the world together. She was loved and greatly respected by those with whom she became involved, especially her husband of 31 years. She had a special feeling for all the younger children in the family whose developments she followed with great interest.
In addition to her loving husband David, she is survived by her brother, John F. Tierney and his wife, Patrice of Salem; her sister-in-law, Martha M. Tierney of Salem; step-son, Matthew Doughty and his wife, Michelle; step-daughter Megan Doughty and her companion, Adam Medlyn; niece, Kristin M. Collins and husband, Brian of Wakefield; nephew, James M. Tierney and wife, Amy of Melrose; step-grandchildren, Cady, Cirie and Aeris; several great-nieces and nephews and friends too numerous to count. She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Doris Tierney, and her brother, Michael A. Tierney.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her funeral service which will be held in the Peterson-O’Donnell Funeral Home, 167 Maple St. (Route 62), Danvers, on Saturday, October 14, at 10 a.m. As requested by the family, there will be no visiting hours and burial is private.
