On Sunday, December 17, 2023, Barb peacefully passed away at South Huron Hospital, surrounded by her loving family at the age of 85. She was the devoted wife of Harry Dougherty for an incredible 67 years and a proud mother to Heather (Brian), Randy (Kathy), and Paul (Patty). Barb was an adored grandmother to Brendan, Justin, Rochelle, Nathan, Evan, Aaron, Angela, and Corey, and a cherished GG to twelve grandchildren, with another on the way. She will be fondly remembered by the Dougherty family.
Barb dedicated 25 years of her life to the Huron County Health Unit, where she served in the dental and hearing programs, primarily within the Huron County Elementary Schools. Her commitment to community health and education has left a lasting impact on countless lives, and her contributions will always be remembered. Throughout their beautiful journey together, Barb and Harry shared numerous adventures and cherished moments, particularly enjoying the breathtaking sunsets along the shores of Lake Huron.
In honor of Barb’s life, a private family funeral service will be held at Haskett Funeral Home, Exeter. Her memory will forever remain in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. As a community, we offer our deepest condolences to Harry and the entire Dougherty family during this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Barb Dougherty. Your warmth, kindness, and remarkable contributions will forever be remembered within our Lake Huron Resort Community.
