Patricia Ann "Trish" Dooley
Trish Dooley of Fernandina Beach, FL, passed away on Dec. 8, 2021, after a long illness.
She was born to the late John F. and Mary Lou Thomas Dooley. She grew up in Fort Washington, PA and attended Mount St. Joseph Academy, Flourtown, PA. After graduating from Mississippi State University, she moved to Memphis, TN before relocating to Atlanta, GA where she pursued a career in high-tech sales.
When the Olympics came to Atlanta in 1996, Trish took on the job of fund raising for a nonprofit component of the games. From there, she served as Director of Children’s Miracle Network and Community Partners at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, raising over $6 million for two children’s hospitals in Atlanta.
In 2004, Trish moved to Amelia Island, FL and continued fund raising, this time for the Baptist Medical Center Nassau and was instrumental in raising the funds for a new hospital wing. She served on the Boards of the Amelia Island Museum of History and the Boys and Girls Club.
Trish had a lifelong love of college football attending as many Georgia/Florida games as she could.
Trish leaves behind a sister, Kay Gould and her husband, Rob, and a brother, Jack Dooley, and his wife, Ann, and nieces, Megan Anderson (Ryan), Moira Gould, Lauren Dooley and nephews Patrick Gould (Andrea) and Sean Dooley, grandnephews Brennan, Shane and Owen Anderson.
Memorial services will be held at the Amelia Island Plantation Chapel on January 28, 2022 at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Amelia Island History Museum.”

Trish and I worked together at Childen's Healthcare of Atlanta and I have wonderful memories of her. She was always very energetic and creative. I remember her involvement with the Olympics, and also the times she volunteered at the Rose Bowl decorating the Eastman Kodak float. We remained in contact following her move to Fernandina and she would contact me when she was in Atlanta. I know the last years have been challenging for her, and my thoughts and prayers are with her family at this sad time.
I feel so bad. I did not realize how bad Trish was doing or that she had passed away. Trish at one time was pretty active with the Amelia Island Museum of History. I knew she was in my neighborhood but did not realize where in the neighborhood she lived. She only lived like 5 homes away from where I live. She was great. She would always ask how I was doing whenever I saw her at the museum and she had a great personality. She was great as a board member of the museum during her time at the museum. I just feel bad with all the time I work at Museum, Walgreens and doing scouts volunteering that I was not aware of how she was doing. My condolences to the family.
Thoughts and prayers. She was warm and friendly to everyone she met.
Dear cousin, Trish! A thoughtful soul whom I enjoyed in childhood and in several visits as adults. She facilitated visits to me by my elderly aunts where I lived in California. She seemed to be aware of what they needed to be comfortable and was very generous. She will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Trish’s passing. She was a lovely lady who brightened my day whenever our paths crossed. I will miss her bright smile, which is shown beautifully in the photo that has been posted. Good-bye, my friend.
Dear Patricia thanks for all you did for our hospital and this community. May you find rest in the arms of the Good Shepherd and peace for your soul.rd
