Although Regina will leave a void in many peoples lives, she is now healthy in heaven with her late husband and beloved mom and dad.

Regina Dougherty, age 66, peacefully passed away in her Ontario home on Friday, January 15, 2021. The daughter of Wayne and Fern Estes, she was born October 20, 1954 in Pontiac, MI and was graduated from Crestline High School with the class of 1973 and also took cosmetology classes at Pioneer.

She was a proud member of Crossroads Church, where she formerly served as a leader of a Women’s Widows group for 4 years. While inspiring others to find their own strength and hope, she found a great support system and made incredible friends along the way.
