Marion E. Doherty
Marion E. Doherty (nee Elliott) of Sagamore Hills, former resident of Solon Ohio for over 58 years, died peacefully on May 30, 2022. Beloved wife of Robert J. Doherty for 66 years until his passing in 2014; loving and beloved mother of Maureen Caughran (Philip), Diane Jackson (Robert), and the late Robert J. Jr.; cherished grandmother of Daniel Caughran (Kristin Simmons) and Andrew Caughran; and sister to Georgia Stribling (deceased).
Marion was born in Manhattan, New York, on August 31, 1923, and raised in Bloomfield, NJ. She attended secretarial school after graduation and worked as a secretary for Curtis Wright and General Electric before and during her marriage until her children were born. The family moved several times over the years and settled in Solon, OH. After her children were grown, she worked as an executive secretary for Erickson Tool, which later became Kennametal.
Marion was a caring friend to many. In the early years after retirement, she kept busy driving friends wherever they needed to go, making meals, and delivering them to neighbors and friends, and just helping in any way she could. She enjoyed gardening, nature, cooking, entertaining, and being with family and friends. But most of all, she delighted in watching her grandsons grow up and their visits every summer and Thanksgiving. For the past three years, she resided at The Reserve at Brentwood and enjoyed her new friends as well as the caring staff members.
There will be a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Rita Church, 32820 Baldwin Road, Solon, her Parish for 58 years, on Friday July 22, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. Entombment All Saints Cemetery, Northfield Center.
