Mrs. Doyle was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She held many positions in various Catholic churches. Her greatest joy was her family and her faith. She also enjoyed traveling, dogs, quilting and teaching.

Travelling was enjoyed by her family and they traveled extensively. They travelled throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, including many National Parks, enjoying each other and the countryside.
Mrs. Doyle is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Lawrence A. Doyle and their daughter, Briget C. Doyle, PhD of Boiling Springs S.C., and by her brother, Edward Rozmary (Ellen).
