Dorothy Sevara Doyle, 96, entered into eternal life Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018, at StoryPoint Assisted Living, Midland, Mich.
Dorothy was born July 30, 1922, in Binghamton, N.Y., daughter of the late Raymond Sr. and Victoria (Sury) Sevara. After graduating from Binghamton Central High School, Dorothy trained in New York City to assist in the homeland war efforts during World War II. After the war she worked at GAF (General Aniline and Film) in Binghamton where she met her future husband, James L. Doyle Jr., and married April 12, 1948. She was later employed by Link Aviation and General Electric, though she chose to spend most of her time with her three children and husband, who always came first to her.
Dorothy treasured being in the outdoors and loved being on the beach. She spent many of her summers all along the East Coast from Cape Cod to Florida and eventually retired with James in Calabash near Sunset Beach. Together they enjoyed sunbathing, swimming and especially walking along the beach, discovering nature and collecting as many shells as she could carry home to treasure. This home also became a vacation mecca for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dorothy was also an avid reader of mystery novels, above all Agatha Christie, and was never without a good book or a newspaper. She also held a special place in her heart for all God's creatures, especially her precious and "feisty" cat, Squeaky Pooh.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband, James; her daughter Jacqueline Swan; brothers Raymond Jr. and Richard Sevara; and sister Irene Granger. She is survived by her siblings Donald and Robert Sevara, Lenora Rugg and Darlene Pennay; son, James G. Doyle of Singapore; daughter Christine C. Langvardt (Patrick) of Midland; grandchildren, Accalia D. Bailey (Ruffin) of Charleston, S.C., Timothy P. Wolcott (Laura) of Oakland, Calif., and Parker P. Doyle Langvardt of Chicago; and great-grandchildren Caelan and Avelyn Bailey and Noah and Oliver Wolcott.
Dorothy will be laid to rest next to her husband and daughter at North Myrtle Beach, S.C., Memorial Gardens with a gravesite celebration of her life.
A very special thanks to her wonderful and loving caregivers at StoryPoint Assisted Living and MidMichigan Hospice.
