Karen Doherty (nee Trent), aged 72, passed away on May 22 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Mahattan and was raised in New Jersey. Karen graduated from Bryant University, where she met her husband Mike. Karen and Mike lived the past 37 years in Midland Park where they raised two beautiful daughters, Jennifer and Michele. Karen worked as a legal secretary most of her career but she most enjoyed her family, traveling, dining out and a good martini. Karen had a smile that could light up any room. She never met anyone she didn't like.
Karen is survived by her husband of 50 years, Mike, her daughters, Jennifer Demers (Andrew), Michele Frusciano (Dan), her brother Cliff Trent and sister-in-law Kate Trent, and her five grandchildren whom she absolutely adored, Vivian Demers, Paige Demers, Colin Demers, Trent Frusciano and Shea Frusciano.
