Mary Doyle

Feb. 4, 1928 — Dec. 31, 2013

Mary Margaret McCorkle Doyle passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013, in Fairfield, Calif. She was 85.

Mary Margaret was born Feb. 4, 1928, in Akron, Ohio to Bessie Mae Jones and Dr. Walker E. McCorkle.

She is survived by her two sons, Donald and his wife Tracy of Fairfield, Calif., and John and his girlfriend Janis King of Texas City, Texas; her granddaughters, Holly Strickland and husband Robert, Megan Doyle, Morgan Doyle and fiancé Andrew Scott; as well as many lifelong friends in Texas City. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dan; her brother and sister-in-law, Dr. Robert and Shirley McCorkle.

Mary graduated from Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree. She began her master’s degree at the University of Colorado where she met and married Donald (Dan) Doyle. She subsequently completed her master’s degree in economics at the University of Houston. After marriage, Mary and Dan moved to Shreveport, La., where their first son Donald was born. A job transfer brought Mary and Dan to Texas City, Texas, where their second son John was born.

Mary began a career in education that spanned four decades as a high school teacher. Her dedication to education left a lifelong impression on both her students and their families. She was involved in many aspects of her community – serving on the board of directors for the College of the Mainland, Rotary, senior class advisor for TCHS, as well as her church.

Following her retirement from education, Mary and Dan moved to Coronado, Calif., where she enjoyed many hours on the golf course and walking the beach. She loved to travel and was ready to go anywhere in a moment’s notice.

A memorial service will held at noon Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, at Emken Linton Funeral Home, 5100 Emmett F. Lowry Expy, Texas City, Texas. In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made to The American Diabetes Association.

    Dear Dr. Doyle and Tracy, I had no idea that Mary was your mom (and mom in law) until I read about it in the paper. I am a home health nurse who frequently visits the Emeritus facility and although your mother was not my patient, she was a constant delight for all of us who visit the facility., and I spoke with her and her friend Doris nearly every day I visited the center. I worked with you, Dr. Doyle, way back in the day, at NBMC in Telemetry when I was a young nurse of 24, many years ago. I remember you as being the "coolest" doctor back then, married to the "prettiest" nurse :) I was very sorry to hear that she had passed, but I wanted you to know how much she enriched all of our lives. She will be missed!

    Dear Family of Mary, I enjoyed the heck out of your Mom! She would always surprise us at Bingo with a funny "blurt out". Mary will be missed by many here but especially her friend Doris, the staff, and me! Prayers & blessings to you all. Valaree Hoover Assistant in Activities
