Florence “Kathleen” Doyle, age 92, of Mena, Arkansas went to her heavenly home Sunday, May 7, 2017.
She was born in Dallas, Texas on October 6, 1924 to the late William Arthur Thomas and the late Jewel Azalee McNellis Thomas. Kathleen was a dedicated wife of the late Reverend Dan Doyle for 57 years. Kathleen had a servant’s heart and walked faithfully with her husband in his ministry. Most of all she loved God and her family, especially her grandchildren, which she helped care for until they were almost grown. She was an awesome prayer warrior and as D.J. May would say, had a direct “hotline to Heaven.” Kathleen loved singing and listening to music. She was a loving and kind grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, and sister to all. She will be dearly missed.
