Bebee Marion Doherty

Born: 7/21/1935, Camas, WA
Death: 10/5/2007, Moab, UT
Service: 10/07/2007, 1:00 pm, Spanish Valley Mortuary

The desert winds carried Bebee Marion Doherty’s spirit as she departed on October 5th, 2007. She died peacefully at home with family members and hospice care several weeks after suffering a massive stroke. She was 72 years old.

For the past 25 years Bebee and her husband of 50 years, Robert H. Doherty, enjoyed an active semi-retirement in Moab, Utah.

Prior to Moab, Robert and Bebee lived 25 years in Sunshine Canyon, Colorado, eight miles east of Boulder on County road 83 where they raised three children.

Son Mark, 49, and his wife Deborah Read live in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Daughter, Terry Doherty-Kruse, 48, lives with her husband, Dale Kruse, in Hayden, Colorado.

Daughter, Patricia Strosnider, 45, lives with her husband David and boys Tyler and Andrew in Coaldale, Colorado.

Robert and Bebee met each other on the ski slopes of Arapaho Basin while Bebee was a nursing student at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Denver and Robert an engineer at the Bureau of Standards in Boulder.

Bebee grew up in Camas, Washington and Portland, Oregon with her brother, Leon, now deceased, and her parents Elton B. (Tony) and Olga Robertson.

She was born on July 21, 1935 in Camas, Washington. Her birth mother, Melonie Robertson, died when Bebee was only one year old, and for a time she was raised at the Old Buhman Home by relatives Roy and Viola Norman as well as her grandfather and grandmother, Carl and Francis Buhman, first generation immigrants.

Tributes:

Our sincere condolences to the Doherty family on the passing of Bebee. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
- Paul and Pam Lander

Bebee's memory will live on in the Sunshine School with her gift of the historic post office and the woodburning stove Bob was part of this generosity. Dave and Patty helped restore the school with Patty's newsletter being a major part of this. My sympathy to you, and fond memories.
- June Howard

To Bob, Mark, Terry and Patty, Please accept my sincere sympathy on your loss of someone so dear. Mark had notified Warren of Bebee's illness, so it wasn't a complete suprise when it appeared in the Camera. I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Jane Olson

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
