Obituary of Stephen Doherty

Stephen Joseph Doherty (Stevie, Duff), 62, passed in his sleep surrounded by his family members at The University of Kansas Hospital after a lengthy illness on August 3, 2022.  Stevie was born September 13, 1959, son of Bernard Doherty and Delores (Walker) Doherty in Fort Scott, Kansas.

 

He attended grade school at St. Mary’s Catholic School and graduated from Fort Scott High School in 1977.  He was a big sports fan throughout his life and loved the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, Notre Dame football, and the Kansas Jayhawks.  He loved competition and played football, baseball, chess, poker, golf, and tried hard to play basketball.  He also loved fishing, reading and history.  He read all the classics from Tolstoy to Hemingway.  After graduation, he attended Pittsburg State University for some time before starting his career in the construction business as a tuck pointer and mason.  He worked for Mid-Continental Waterproofing Company, Landmark Restoration (for his brother, Ed) Midland Restoration,  and started his own company for a short time called Over All Restoration with the slogan “Overall the best, Overall the rest”.  His work took him all over the United States, and some of the notable places he worked on included the Jefferson Davis Memorial in Kentucky, the State Capitol of Texas in Austin, the John Hancock building in Chicago, and Union Station in Kansas City.

 

He was one of eleven children and is survived by nine brothers and sisters, Judith Maura (Larry), Nassau, Bahamas, Darlene Doherty, Margaret Humphrey (Merl), Barbara Woodward, Dan Doherty (Marie), Don Doherty (Roxie), Brian Doherty, Denise Doherty Brezik (David), all of Fort Scott, Michelle Youngdoff (Ron Crady), Overland Park, KS; sister-in-law Betty Doherty, St. Louis, and over 40 nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Bernard and Delores (Walker) Doherty, brother, Ed Doherty, nephew, Todd Woodward, great nephews, Elijah Doherty, Gabriel Stinson, Jacob Daley, and great nieces, Maggie Daley, and Jules Daley.

 

Stevie had a big heart and was a wonderful caretaker for his mom in her later years at home and at the nursing home.  He not only visited her at the nursing home, but also took time to visit with everyone in the day room to make sure residents had someone to talk to.  He was also proud of his role as mentor and coach to his nephew, Jeffrey Doherty.

Steve knew no stranger and was a skilled conversationalist, storyteller and comedian (or so he thought).  He had so many friends.  He was a member of the Elks Lodge and the “Holmtown Crew”. Steve was also a member of Mary Queen of Angels Church.

 

Father Bob McElwee will officiate the Mass of Christian Burial 11:00 a.m. Saturday, August 6, 2022, at Mary Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Fort Scott, Kansas with burial following at St. Mary’s Cemetery, under the direction of the Konantz-Cheney Funeral Home.

Obituary of Delores Lay

Delores Mae Lay, age 88, passed away July 29, 2022, in Susanville, CA, where she lived with her daughter, Valerie Martin. She had formerly lived with her husband, Bob Lay, in Hillsboro, OR, until his death in 2020. The two had been married 59 years.

Born on May 21, 1934, at her childhood home in North Braddock, PA, the tenth child of Charles and Anna (Fiyalko) Gregorovich, Dolores grew up there in a house on Stokes Avenue. She loved to share the memories of her childhood and especially her life growing up as the daughter of immigrants in an ethnic Slovak family. She had a wonderful gift of laughter, and she relished being doted on by her brothers and sisters. She was especially close to her beloved brother, Albert, also known as Abe.

Delores graduated from Scott High School in North Braddock, PA, and in the ‘50s she was employed at Isaly’s in that town. She later worked at the Homestead Steel Mill until she met and married Bob (Robert) Lay in 1960. Lastly, she worked at the Royal Valley School District in Hoyt, KS, as a paraprofessional during the 1980s.

A city girl, Delores met her handsome U.S. Marine, Bob Lay, who happened to be a Kansas farm boy, while vacationing with friends in Miami, FL, in 1959. The two fell in love instantly and were soon married. The couple lived in many places across the United States while Bob was stationed in the Marine Corps. Delores held down the home front, much of the time on her own, during Bob’s military deployments, some of which were overseas. As time passed, they finally settled in Hoyt, KS, until they both retired and found a home in Hillsboro, OR, in 2000.

Delores was a devoted and loving mother and wife who brought with her to this country many of the Slovak traditions, which she loved. She also brought laughter and joy into the lives of her children and to most people who knew her. One of her greatest gifts was her extraordinary memory, and she often would recount some of the stories of her life,” back in the day.” She also kept her “Memories” neatly cataloged in binders and photo albums, most of them carefully describing the date, time, and what was going on in the family’s life back then.

Delores was preceded in death by her brothers and sisters; Albert Gregorovich, Elsie Gregorovich, Wilma Evak, Ann Kocsis, Paul Gregorovich, Helen Gregorovich, Emily Bires, Peg Ford, and Charles Gregorovich, as well as her husband, Bob (Robert) Lay.

She is survived by her five children; Valerie (Ron) Martin, Susanville, CA, Mark Lay, Beaverton, OR, Quentin Lay, Beaverton, OR, Dwight Lay, Beaverton, OR, and Bobbie (Barbara) Lay, Rapid City, SD. Delores is also survived by seven grandchildren and many, many nieces, and nephews.

Delores’s main desire (and achievement) was that her children had lived and had good memories of the days gone by. In this, she definitely was a great success.

We thank you, Mom, for the precious gift of life that you gladly gave to each of your children. We will never forget the good times and sincere love that you poured out on all of us. Your laughter was a joy to us all, and your boundless love for others and your desire to take care of your family has been such a blessing. You will be much missed, but we thank you and will remember you always for your wonderful love.

Graveside interment for both Bob and Delores Lay will be held at 11:00 AM Saturday, September 24th, 2022, at Osaga Cemetery, Fulton, KS. Military honors will be provided for Bob by the United States Marine honor guard. Local arrangements are under the direction of the Cheney Witt Chapel. Words of remembrance may be submitted to the online guestbook at cheneywitt.com.

Obituary of Pauline Alsop

Pauline “Polly” Louise (Gordon) Alsop, affectionately known by family members as “Red”, 99, formerly of Fort Scott, passed away Friday morning, July 29, 2022, at Infinity Park Nursing Home in Overland Park, Kansas. She was born February 8, 1923, in Eve, Missouri, the daughter of John Worth and Lillian Lola (Kearns) Gordon.

She worked for several years at the Bourbon County Tag Office. She was a lifetime member of the First United Methodist Church, White Shrine of Jerusalem, and Order of the Eastern Star.

Polly was kind and tender-hearted. She had a love for children and animals. She loved to play bridge with lady friends in both Fort Scott and Clinton. And she was particularly fond of playing Rook with all her family members – always had a Rook game going! She loved watching the Royals and Chiefs on TV.

Polly welcomed anyone to her table – there was always an extra plate. She loved to bake and cook and give to friends and neighbors during the holidays. She was known for her pies; “Polly’s Pies” and always had homemade ice cream. Polly was always cooking for a house full of family members and their friends! She was known far and wide by dozens of high schoolers as ‘Aunt Polly’ and her house was always the gathering place of all the kids.  Polly helped with MYF, Cub Scouts, Campfire; a little league baseball coach, homeroom mother…she did it all.

Polly also loved to sew and made clothes and costumes for her children and grandkids and made beautiful formals for her daughter Sue.

Obituary of Thomas Madison

Thomas W. “Tom” Madison, 56, passed away Sunday, July 31, 2022, as the result of a brain injury sustained in a motorcycle accident in Kansas City, Kansas on July 23, 2022. Tom was born July 6, 1966, son of William “Bill” Madison and Margie (Peterson) Madison in Fort Scott, Kansas.

Tom lived in Fort Scott during his early childhood before the family moved to Adrian, Missouri, then Columbus, Kansas to further his father’s career as a teacher and a coach.

The family returned to Fort Scott during Tom’s sixth-grade year. He attended Fort Scott schools through graduation from Fort Scott High School in 1984, where he was active in FFA. He earned his associate degree from Fort Scott Community College in 1986 where he was on the Rodeo Team and the Livestock Judging Team. He then attended Kansas State University, earning his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education in 1990.

After graduating from Kansas State, Tom taught two years of high school agriculture and FFA in Lewiston, Nebraska, then moved to Paxico, Kansas where he managed the Tiffany Springs Ranch, then the Laflin Ranch in Olsburg, Kansas.

He returned home to Fort Scott in 1995. He worked for Mid-Continental Restoration for several years before returning to teaching agriculture and FFA for two years in Pleasanton, Kansas.

In the mid-2000’s Tom began Madison Trucking and had been in the business of contracting to haul cattle since that time. In recent years, he also worked for his cousin Billy Madison at Spring Hill Pork Processors.

Tom (and Lindsay) Madison have two daughters, Kendall, and Lauren, who he spent a great time with during their 4-H years showing swine and other livestock at the Bourbon County Fair as well as traveling to shows in a regional series, the Kansas State Fair, and the American Royal.

He spent many years during and after college competing in rodeos and team ropings where he developed many close friendships that lasted a lifetime.

If any family or friends ever needed a hand, he could build or fix about anything and was always willing to help. He could strike up a conversation with anyone, knew someone everywhere he went, and could be heard anywhere nearby with his big laugh.

Tom is survived by his daughters Kendall and Lauren, and their mother Lindsay. His mother Margie Madison, all of Fort Scott; and his brother-in-law Robert Handke of Leavenworth, Kansas. Also surviving are aunts and uncles of the Madison family Nora Karleskint, Norma Kramer, Warren Madison, Cathy (Pat) Thomas, Frank (Deb) Madison, Claude Madison; aunts and uncles of the Peterson Family Mary Lou Schafer, Frank Peterson, Von (Susan) Peterson, Verna May “Sissy” (Jay) Mall, and Edith Peterson (wife of late Harry “Sonny”) and many cousins and other extended family.
