Dorothea ("Dottie") A. Doyle, 92, of Old Saybrook, CT, passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon surrounded by her family.

Dorothea was the daughter of John and Ann Hartnett, and baby sister to Helen Dunlap, Ed Hartnett, Jim Hartnett, and John Hartnett, all deceased. Dorothea had a long and loving marriage with the late Thomas J. Doyle, and is survived by her son Jeffrey Doyle, her two granddaughters Shannon Doyle and Crystal Doyle, and her daughter-in-law Sandi Doyle.

Throughout her life, Dorothea was many things to many people: dedicated and beloved daughter, mother, and grandmother; loving wife; dear friend; secretary; town treasurer; volunteer; devout Catholic; avid traveler; animal lover; and so much more. She will be deeply missed, but we are comforted by our many cherished memories.

A Catholic mass will be held on Monday, August 15th at 10:30 a.m. at St. John's Catholic Church in Old Saybrook, CT. In lieu of flowers, Dorothea requested that donations be sent to Ray of Light Farms, 232 Town Street, East Haddam, CT, 06423.
