Margaret (Margie) J. Dougherty, 57, of Honesdale, passed away on Monday, June 5, 2023 at Geisinger CMC in Scranton. She was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Ann Gauthier.
Born on January 2, 1966 in Plattsburg, NY, Margie graduated with her Associates in Accounting from Lackawanna College, working for several local businesses. After exploring options within her accounting career, Margie ventured back to her original passion in nursing. She spent many years working as a CNA at Ellen Memorial, making many lifelong friends. Her dream to further her career was realized when she graduated GPN, Summa Cum Laude, as Valedictorian of her class, from CTC of Lackawanna County. Her true passion, though, was always her children.
Margie enjoyed spending her free time gardening, dancing, embroidering, gaming and playing the family game of Shoot the Gap. She especially loved being with her family.
