LEWISTON - Alnah Colleen Doughty,
35, of Chebeague Island, Poland, and Burlington, died Monday evening
surrounded by her family, after a long battle with lung cancer.
Alnah was born on Dec. 9, 1969, the youngest of five children. She graduated from Greely High School and Husson College and worked at many outside jobs as well as in insurance.
She is survived by a son, William Grant Robinson; her parents, Louise and Cecil Amos Doughty; a brother, Christopher Doughty; and two sisters, Linda Kelly and Melissa Doughty; also, an uncle, Alfred Doughty and an aunt, Roberta Sherman. Another brother, Jeffrey, died in 1986. Alnah had many nieces and nephews including Leah, Mary, and Chris Doughty, Justin and Zach Doughty, Katie Kelly, and Jessica and Jeffrey Russo; a step-nephew, Dustin Vining; and a great-nephew, Hunter Russo. Chebeague Island is home to many relatives, too many to mention.
Alnah loved the outdoors, whether gill-netting aboard the Sou' Wester, hunting deer and moose in the woods, or working in her gardens, she was always happiest outside. She will always be remembered for her ready smile, her great sense of humor, her love of animals, and most of all, her unfailing courage and bravery.
Visiting hours will be from 1-3 and 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth. Memorial service will be held at the Chebeague Island United Methodist Church at 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 14.
