August 13, 1946May 4, 2020

Paula Kathleen (Glick) Doherty of Treasure Island, Florida, age 73, passed away on May 4, 2020 after a battle with cancer.

Paula was survived by her husband of 52 years, Charles F. Doherty; son, Timothy A. Doherty; daughter, Joy M. (Doherty) Harvey; son, Charles E. Doherty, son Kevin J. Doherty; ten grandchildren; sister, Karol (Glick) Secondo and brother Karl Glick.

Originally from Pittsburg, Kansas and a graduate from Pittsburg State University with a degree in Social Work, Paula left with her husband, Charlie, when he joined the Army in 1968. After five years in the service, Paula and Charlie settled in Westland, Michigan, where they raised their four children. In 2008, they became snowbird residents of Treasure Island, Florida.

Paula was a lifelong and active member in the Catholic Church where she celebrated her faith in every facet of life. Her compassion shone through even in her career of over 20 years as an employee and volunteer for the Wayne-Westland Community Schools in Westland, Michigan. Paula was Charlie’s soulmate, a loving wife, a devoted mother and grandmother, and an inspiration to so many.

A memorial service will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Howell, Michigan, at a later date.

Charlie and Family:
Dave and I are deeply saddened to learn of your loss. I grew up with Paula - thirteen years of parochial school and many, many trips to the cabin in Arkansas with her family. I have so many happy memories of slumber parties, swimming every day at the city pool together, hours long talking on the phone about whatever teenage girls talked about, and ice skating at the lake near her home. We truly had a lovely childhood. While our adult lives took us in different directions, I'm happy to know that her life was filled with the joy of a loving family and friends. Her light will shine forever in your hearts and those who knew her.

So sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing,. I remember Paula from my teaching days in the Wayne Westland schools. She was a wonderful person who always seemed to have a smile on her face. I am certain that she will be greatly missed. I remember at least Joy and Kevin as students and my sincere condolences and prayers go out to the family.
