Lindsay O'Rourke Doherty died Sunday at Geisinger Community Medical Center. She is survived by her husband of 10 years, James A. Doherty III, and their three children, James IV, Kathryn and Paige.

Born in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 21, 1980, daughter of Vincent and Bonny O'Rourke of Holden, Mass., she graduated from Wachusett Regional High School in 1998 and the College of the Holy Cross in 2002, where she was the recipient of the Presidential Service Award. She was employed by the Diocese of Scranton, raising money for Catholic education. Previously, she held sales and marketing positions at the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, Bloomingdale's and Pearson Education.

She was an active community volunteer, contributing her time and talent to St. Clare/St. Paul School, the Sant' Andrea Society and St. Joseph's Center. She was fiercely devoted to her family, particularly her husband and three children, who were the light of her life. Unfailingly kind, generous and committed to her faith, she brought out the best in the wide circle of family and friends who adored her. Those who loved her will remember her radiant smile and enthusiasm, her abiding care and compassion, her sense of humor and the deep joy she brought to all the lives she touched.

Also surviving are a brother, Robert O'Rourke of Groton, Mass.; brothers and sisters-in-law, Mimi Doherty of Scranton; Judy Riff and her husband, James, of Clarks Summit; Grace Hillebrand and her husband, Thomas, of Clarks Summit; Patrick Doherty of Scranton; and Jack Doherty of New York City; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
