Born in Meaford on December 8, 1937, she was a daughter of the late Henry and Martha (nee Carefoot) May.

Annabelle was predeceased by her husband Lorne Doherty in 2006.

She was the much loved mother of Geoff Doherty (Marianne) of Cherry Valley, Chris Doherty (Suzanne Gill) of Kitchener, Lori Sheridan (Rick) of Angus, and was predeceased by her son Bradley Doherty and daughter-in-law Sharon, her daughter Margaret Melnychuk and will be remembered fondly by her son-in-law Terry of Meaford.

Annabelle will never be forgotten by her many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families.

Annabelle worked for many years as a nurse at the Meaford General Hospital and then enjoyed caring for others by providing home nursing.  She was a very hard worker and also took great pride in her appearance, and had a special lipstick for every occasion.

A private family service will be conducted at Christ Church Anglican with interment following at Lakeview Cemetery in Meaford.

    Our sincere condolences to all the Doherty family on the passing of Annabelle. Rick’s family have a lot of good memories, when they were young kids, of adventures on the 3rd Line Farm. My Dad, when he was Administrator of the Meaford Hospital, always spoke highly of Annabelle’s wonderful nursing abilities. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

    Geoff, Chris and Lori, your children and all of Annabelle’s grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    I extend me deepest sympathy for the lost of your mother. it is a heartbreaking day to lose your mother. Annabelle and I were close friends during most of our school years, including high school. We sang in the choir and helped one another with our homework, quizzing each other on important issues on the topic at hand. We had great times double dating and enjoying our teen years at Teen Town and spent many summers at her parents farm on the 9th Line. (I very much loved Annabelle’s parents.) I am so sorry to hear that she is now gone from this life. She is blessed to have passed onto a more peaceful place and has joined her husband, Lorne, daughter and son. Please accept my sincere and deepest condolences of her death. Memories are golden.
