Anne was very strong in her Christian faith. She loved Jesus, birds and daisies. After marrying her high school sweetheart and love of her life in September, 1952 they were blessed with 5 amazing children. Anne was an amazing mother and homemaker. Sadly, her husband was killed in action in 1965 she was left to raise 4 children and remained a widow for 21 years until she remarried the second love of her life, Arthur J. Doty in 1986. They were married 23 years until his death in 2009.
She suffered from dementia and had been living at Wake Assisted Living in Raleigh, NC for the past 10 years and she was very well taken care of there. She lost a lot of memories but never forgot her children.

Although, we know Anne is in heaven with her heavenly Father, she will be dearly missed, but will be in our hearts forever.

    Keith and family I am so sorry to hear of Ms. Anne passing. She was always smiling and laughing at me about something. She knew my name and would say Lisa turn that light out please. You have the best water. She will definitely be missed. Our deepest condolences to you and the family at this time.

    Grandma Doty, You were an Angel on Earth. I will never forget the way you loved my babies Hannah, Jordan, and Brooke. We had just moved to PA and knew no one. You and Pap would watch the kids so Keith and I could get to jobs, meet new friends, and you always had tons of clothes from your friends consignment store in Monongahela. Hannah was spoiled rotten being the first baby girl in many baby boys. But most of all Grandma Doty you shared about Jesus and who He was in your life. Your faith was spoken all through the years and I know you are in that place you always spoke of heaven. I will always remember the lady at Dollar Tree carding you for buying a bottle of wine. You looked at the cashier and about peed in your pants and said. Look lady. Im 79 years old. Get off my back. You are now sitting at the Lords table with Jesus, Pap, Russell, Leslie, Chuck and your first husband and all your family who went before you. Your legacy will be one of faith, family, and fun carried on to the next generations. Thank You Grandma for being the BEST Grandma to my kids! Rest and see ya in a few, Sherrie Lee Thomas

    Many times breakfast consisted of grandma making us grandkids egg in a cup with toast when we visited Monongahela. Always made you laugh, especially when pap couldn't hear what she was saying so she would yell "ARRRT!". Love and miss you grandma Doty!
