A Memorial Mass will be held on Friday, May 21, 2021 at 4:00PM at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Halligan-McCabe-DeVries is assisting the family with arrangements.

Molly McGuire Doyle was born May 18, 1971 at Moline Public Hospital, Moline, Illinois.

Molly was a beautiful baby and carried that image throughout her life. She was very spiritual, loving, caring, intelligent, classy, and fun loving.

Molly was very successful professionally. She held positions in human resource and procurement, including high-tech professionals and corporate infrastructure. She held management positions with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Sears Corporate, AT&T in Chicago and JC Penny headquarters in Plano (Dallas) Texas – always advancing and improving herself.

Molly attended Grant Elementary, Moline, St. John's International School, Brussels, Belgium, Eisenhower Elementary, Sudlow Junior High, and Central High in Davenport. She graduated from the University of Iowa with majors in Communications and French. She was fluent in French until the end. She loved the language while living in Europe as a little girl with her parents and brothers Jon and Patrick.

Molly's family includes her parents, Nancy (who she always called "Beautiful") and Jim, brother Jon, his wife Charlotte, their children Grace Anne and Charles, San Francisco, California, and her brother Patrick (who she always called "Cheeto"). She is also survived by eight aunts and uncles: Colleen and Kenneth Ring, Nebraska, Sharon and Timothy Doyle, Paulette and Patrick Doyle, Karen and Kevin Doyle all from South Dakota, and 18 cousins, numerous grand cousins and hundreds of friends and associates internationally.

Molly was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents Mary and John McGuire and Lucille and Edward Doyle, aunts and uncles Louella and Walter Canney, Marilyn and Richard Doyle, and Kenneth Doyle.

May God Bless Molly and all of the faithfully departed though the Mercy of God, rest in peace and eternal happiness. Amen.

Nancy, Jim, Jon and Patrick, Molly was my rock, my bright light, one of the most dependable parts of my life. Knowing her all these years made her feel just like a sister to me. In these most recent years, as Molly and I spent many days texting and messaging, visiting when possible yet far too infrequently, her genuine compassion and bright light and angelic smile were always the best medicine for any dark or rainy day. Even as she struggled in her own ways, she had such a special ability to keep her faith in the forefront, and it was so motivating and powerful. I miss her every day, and after knowing her all these years and feeling that dependable support, I know now that her love will shine down from the heavenly skies and she will always be a bright star to so many. I loved her dearly and I know that she is in the loving arms of our Savior. Moll-doll, "you are a love!" Rest peacefully my dear friend.

My Dear Friend Molly! I thought It was you calling me today. But, it was your mom. To tell me you passed away.... My heart is so heavy I can hardly breath. So many memories of YOU of US went through my mind. We met at The Metropolis Condo as neighbors on different floors. But we soon became very close friends. The times we shared together were priceless and your humor was like no one I have ever known. Your infectious laughter brought a room full of people to your attention and everyone LOVED MOLLY! I am so blessed that I got to be one of your close friends. Continue to be that Bright Light enjoying yourself in the arms of Jesus. I know you were a Believer and Heaven is now rejoicing and celebrating you are HOME. RIP SWEET ANGEL My BFF Molly: I WILL MISS YOU!

Molly, my heart is aches that you left this world too soon. I always loved that we shared a birthday and that our friendship was based on fun and laughter. You were just a few years older than me so you were naturally one of my role model growing up. I still have your senior picture framed together with Ellen! I loved your energy and excitement for life. I will never forget visiting you and having you take me to the grocery store you worked at. You knew everyone there and seemed like a rock star to me. I loved that you were one of the first people Justin and I got to tell 20 years ago in Chicago that we were getting married. I think back to visiting you in IA or SD as a kid, so excited to laugh and be together! I will miss you and keep praying for you. I am grateful you are not in any pain anymore. I am grateful that you passed peacefully. Your caring heart and giving spirit will be missed. Until we meet again in heavenhave some champagne waiting for me! Cheers to you sweet cousin!

I will think of you often sweet cousin Molly. You were always so kind, thoughtful and fun to be around. I'll cherish the memories of seeing you at church, weddings/celebrations, Grandma Doyle's, and Pat & Paulette's on the 4th of July. I'll try to be good, so I can meet you in Heaven.

Dearest Nancy, Jim, Jon and Patrick, My heart goes out to all of you, and I pray that God will bless you in this time of sorrow. You have lost a brilliant daughter and sister. I remember Molly so fondly, with her beautiful and happy smile. She was always so sweet to everyone around her, and so generous of heart. I am glad Jon and Molly had such a close relationship; Jon always had a smile on his face whenever he talked about his beloved sister, Molly. Grace Anne and Charles loved her very much, and knew how much she loved them, too. Molly will be greatly missed but never forgotten. She is surely now an Angel in Heaven who will watch over her beloved family and friends. With my deepest sympathy and loving memory, Christine Dick

Our Dearest Molly,

We loved you so very much, and will miss you dearly. Molly, you were the most beautiful person, always kind, caring, thoughtful and genuine. You had a heart of gold, Molly, so willing to share your true feelings with us. Thank you for being my sister-in-law, and for sharing your wonderful brother, Jon, with me. I know you two were best friends all these years, and he will miss you from the depths of his soul. We are only comforted by knowing that you are in Heaven with God now.
We love you so much, sweet and loving Aunt Molly.

Charlotte, Grace Anne and Charles

We are so so sorry about the loss of Molly. I know what you're going through all to well. Molly had a heart of gold and will be missed dearly. Both of our children are up their together and will look after each other. It is a rough road and it feels like you're on a roller coaster of emotions. Unfortunately the pain and emptiness will never go away. If you need us for anything we are just a phone call away. We love all of you!
