Catherene Faye "Faye" Doherty

October 30, 1939 - July 19, 2017

Catherene Faye Doherty, “Faye,” October 30, 1939-July 19, 2017. More than 47 years ago, Faye said “I do” to her soul mate, best friend, and love of her life, Walter Robert Doherty. She has courageously battled through life without him for the last 12 years and is now reunited with him in Eternity. She was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, and graduated from Pensacola High School. She was one of 2 children of the late Doris and Buck Richbourg.

Faye will forever be remembered by her doting sister Debra Wolfard; sister-in-law Kathy Milne; devoted daughters Bonnie Ross (Mark Fix), Traci Mangan (James), and Patty Stroup (Doug); cherished grandchildren Blair, Kelly, DJ, Cody, and Samantha, and several great-grandchildren.

Faye enjoyed baking, sewing, dancing with her husband but nothing brought her more joy than being with her husband and family.

In accordance with Faye’s wishes, private services for the family will be held. The Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be expressedby clicking the “post a condolence” button below.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
