Sheila A. Doughty, 51, passed away Oct. 5, 2018, in her home surrounded by her family following a courageous battle with ALS. She was the wife of Brian D. Doughty Jr., whom she married Feb. 13, 1988.

Sheila was born in Hartford to parents Shirley and Charles Phelon and raised with her three siblings, Melanie, Kim, and Patrick. Sheila was, above all, a devoted wife and loving mother. Always dedicated to bettering herself, she graduated from Goodwin College in 2011 and became a registered nurse. She loved spending time with her family, crocheting, backyard bonfires, and celebrating holidays, especially Christmas.

Sheila, or Mema, was the glue of the family. She is survived by her four children, Brian, Ashtyn, Erin-Lyn, and Kenneth; and 10 grandchildren, Mackenzie, Anthony, Isabella, Ty-Shawn, Nathilee, Nealla, Trey-Lyn, Lillian, Kieran, and Taye-Lyn.

A memorial service for Sheila will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, noon to 5 p.m. at John F. Tierney Funeral Home, 219 West Center St., Manchester. All are welcome to honor her memory.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made in memory of Sheila to the ALS Therapy Development Institute
