It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Teresa 'Doc' (MacNeil) Doyle of Mabou, Nova Scotia on Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015.
Teresa lived her 90 years filled with joy, happiness, love, faith, music and a sense of humour like no other.
Teresa, daughter of the late Dr. AJ and Elizabeth MacNeil, spent her childhood in beautiful Mabou, Cape Breton, the place she loved more than any other in the entire world. The stories she shared about her adventures with family and friends continuously warmed the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
Teresa married her soul mate, Alexander Doyle, on Aug.16, 1947. They spent 50 years together as partners, confidants, parents, grandparents and best friends. Together they raised five children and spent their early years living throughout the Maritime Provinces eventually calling, once again, Mabou home. Teresa loved nothing more than being surrounded by her five children and being Nanny to her 18 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Teresa was a lifelong member of St Mary’s parish, the CWL, and a very active member of her community.
Teresa was predeceased by her husband, Alexander Doyle; her grandson, Mark David MacDonald; as well as her parents, Dr. AJ and Elizabeth MacNeil and her 10 siblings, Anna, Alexander, John, Mary, Kaye, Donnie, Francis, Stanley, Daniel and Marguerite.
She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
