Catherine Ann Dougherty (Schmutz)

Catherine Ann Dougherty passed away peacefully on Monday January 13th 2020. She was with Charles, her beloved husband of 60 years.

She was preceded in death by her brothers, Bud and Joe and her sister Joan Paillard. She is survived by her son Charles Jr, daughter Catherine and her husband Anthony, son Patrick and his wife Michele, and her son Terrence.

‘Mom Mom’ also had 3 gorgeous and whip-smart granddaughters: Alison and her husband Don, Laura and her boyfriend Zach and Reilly and her invisible friend ‘Ball-y”

Mom mom loved her grand kids even more than peanut butter crackers.

Catherine (Kay) grew up in the German Catholic neighborhood of Olney with her brothers Aloysius (Bud), Joseph and her sister Joan. She graduated from Little Flower High School, where her devastating one hand set shot and grit on the basketball court earned her the nickname “Cookie” Schmutz. She loved nothing more than dancing with her sister Joan at every parish dance they could find. Which is where, in fact, she met Charles - her husband to be. Shortly after marriage they began their family life in the bustling metropolis that was Hatboro. They raised 4 children - Charles Jr, Catherine, Patrick and Terrence (one of whom is a not only a model citizen but also widely recognized as a worldly raconteur - which child that is has yet to be determined, and will be litigated in family court...or the local bar) The Dougherty’s next invaded their stately Southampton homestead on Bristol Road and proceeded to terrorize the neighborhood for many years. They blazed many toboggan trails, built and destroyed tree houses and snow forts both and celebrated many many birthdays, Christmases, graduations...and a parole or (two?)

Upon her return to the workforce, Catherine decided to grace the halls of the Willow Grove Flight Operations unit for many years (before being asked to leave as she wasn’t actually employed there)

Kay was ceremoniously decorated upon retirement from the Flight Ops team - and she was finally off to seek her ever-elusive “5 minutes peace”.

Kay loved many things in life, all of the simple variety:

A cold “Millers” beer on a hot night, with a cool breeze and the Phillies on the TV, but if the stars aligned and we were lucky enough to get Don Rickles or Rodney Dangerfield on the Carson show - the entire neighborhood would surely be awash in her infectious cackle - it was without question the greatest sound I shall ever hear, and it will remain with me forever.

Mom - we Love you and we miss you

Her family will receive relatives and friends on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 10:00 AM until her Funeral Mass 11:00AM in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 235 East State Street, Doylestown PA 18901. Her interment will be held privately. 

Immediately following a lunch will be held at Villa Barolo, Warrington.



Jennie S. Kaminski (Konkoski)

Jennie S. Kaminski (everyone’s “Nana”) of Ivyland died Sunday, January 12, 2020 at St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne surrounded by her family.  She was 97. 

Jennie was the loving wife of the late Joseph Kaminski and mother of the late Patricia Ann Hemko. 

Born on a black dirt farm outside of Middletown, NY she was the daughter of the late John and Stella Moskowitz Konkoski. 

Jennie lived in Fords, NJ for the early part of her life before moving to Boynton Beach, FL where she resided until 2010, when she moved in with her granddaughter and family in Ivyland, PA.

Surviving are, her granddaughter Patti Hemko Alloway, her great-granddaughter, Lexi Alloway and her son-in-law, Lou Hemko.

In addition to her husband, daughter, and her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Irene Koumiss and her brother, Edward Konkoski.

Nana was a woman with exceptionally strong faith in God.  She spread God’s word to everyone she met and inspired and encouraged many.  Nana touched so many lives, that she will never be forgotten and her messages of hope and strength will live on forever in our hearts. She loved her family with all her heart, including our two dogs, Sky and Luna, who she spoiled rotten.  She had 97 and a half incredible years, but she will so deeply missed by everyone who knew her, especially Patti and Lexi.  She was independent and stubborn up until the end.  She had the ability to make everyone love her and feel loved at the same time, whether you met her once or knew her your whole life.

Relatives and friends are invited to greet the family on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 6:00 PM until her Funeral Service 7:00 PM at the Joseph A. Fluehr III Funeral Home, 800 Newtown-Richboro Rd. (at Holland Rd.), Richboro, PA 18954.  Her interment will be held privately.
