Carol Doherty of Binghamton, NY, passed away peacefully in the early hours of June 20, 2024. Carol was born on September 1, 1936 in Newburgh, NY to the late John and Marguerite Hashagen. Carol is survived by her loving husband of 59 plus years John, her sister Joyce Chremos, her children Sharon Doherty (John Leary), Sean Doherty (Erin Mooney), and Josh Doherty (Kathleen Doherty). As well as her three grandchildren Jack, Grace and Caroline Doherty. She is predeceased by her parents. Carol grew up in Ardsley, NY and graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh earning a degree in teaching. After a year of teaching, Carol realized that it was not her calling and worked at Woman's Day magazine until relocating to Binghamton, NY. Upon her relocation, she met John and they began their family. After spending the early years of her children's lives devoted to them, Carol began a career in technical writing. Carol, later, transitioned into a career as a real estate agent, working into her 80s. Carol is remembered as a dedicated community member having been involved in the Tri Cities Opera, the Monday Afternoon Club, and the Phelps Mansion Foundation. She was instrumental in the expansion of the mansion and it becoming a museum. Carol was a talented cook and enjoyed entertaining her family and friends. She was known for her homemade pizza, lamb and chicken spiedies, pavlova, and gingerbread cookies. The family would like to thank the staff at UHS Senior Living at Ideal for all the wonderful support and care they provided Carol while she resided there. Per Carol's request, there will be no services. If you would like to do something to honor Carol's memory, please cook for or entertain those that you hold close, or make a donation to a charitable organization of your choice.
