We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Plainville Funeral Home
Patricia Anne (Doucette) Doughty, 73, of Plainville, passed away unexpectedly, while on a fun-filled vacation with her family, on Friday, July 22, 2022. She was the beloved wife and best friend of Dennis Doughty, with whom she shared 55 years of marriage.
Born in Bangor, Maine on April 15, 1949, Pat was one of three children to the late Harold and Ana Maria (Forcella) Doucette. She met the love of her life, Dennis, while in junior high school and they were sweethearts since that day. They settled in Plainville upon their marriage in 1966 where they raised their devoted daughter Bonnie, and were lovers of travel and road trips who could get to Cape Cod or Lake George with their eyes closed. A longtime member of the Connecticut Junior Women, Inc., she and Bonnie were the first mother/daughter team to serve on the state board together. Pat’s love of Sherlock Holmes, daisies and plastic canvas crafts were prominently displayed throughout her home and shared with others. When they weren’t traveling, she and Dennis shared their spare time with trips to the casino where Pat could fulfill her love of BINGO. Pat lived simply, loved her family deeply and will be missed dearly each and every day.
In addition to her husband Dennis, she leaves her daughter Dr. Bonnie-Marie Doughty-Jenkins of Terryville; her brothers, Randy Doucette and his wife Carmella of Burlington and James Doucette and his wife Marianne of Columbia, SC; and her brother-in-law, Douglas Doughty and his wife Diana of Plainville. She also leaves her nieces, Michelle Rawcliffe, Rebecca Stefanczyk and Dana Johnson; her nephews, Taylor Doughty, and Craig, Matthew, Michael, and Mark Doucette. She was predeceased by her son-in-law, John Jenkins, and leaves her step-granddaughter, Abbey Crook and her daughters, Kayla, Alana, and Madelyn, all who brought Pat much joy.
Family and friends may gather on Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at Plainville Funeral Home, 81 Broad St, Plainville. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday at 11:00 a.m., meeting directly at St. Matthew Church, 120 Church Ave, Forestville.
