Doreen DOYLE


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Doreen Elizabeth Doyle – wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt – aged 84 years, on June 18, 2015. She will be greatly missed by Brendan (Charlie), her husband of 64 years; daughters Lorraine (David) and Linda (Les); and grandchildren Kevin, Jennifer, Tammy, Elyse and Krystina, as well as four great-grandchildren Jesse, Jayden, Logan, Jordynn. Doreen was born in London, England in 1930. Her family moved to Cobham, Surrey, England and this is where she met Brendan and they were married in 1951.

In 1967 they made the choice to emigrate from England to Vancouver (South Burnaby) where they resided with their two daughters. In 1980 they moved to Mission, BC where they resided until a few months ago. Doreen was an avid bird lover. Doreen adopted her stray cat, which she named her Sooty and the two were inseparable. Doreen also loved to tend her flower gardens.

People who knew her also knew that you were always welcome at The Doyle’s home and that there would always be a coffee ready for you. Their circle of friends was vast, including those here in Canada as well as those still in England, Australia, Hawaii to name a few places.

Doreen was loved by all who knew her and will be deeply missed. We would like to acknowledge all the staff at Mission and Delta Hospital for their care. We also would like to “Thank” all the staff at Westshore Laylum Care Home who loved her dearly in the short time she was there. Thank you to Dr. James for his care too.

A Celebration of Life will be held at date yet to be determined.
