Doyle, Mary Elizabeth
- Born: 13 Oct 1900, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
- Died: 5 May 1953, Detroit, Michigan USA
- Buried: Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Southfield, MI - 16/343/10
Aunt Marie was my favorite Aunt when I was a toddler, and she lived with us at 14010 Rutherford in Detroit. She was baptized in the Church of Our Lady in Guelph on October 28th, 1900 with her uncle Thomas Doyle and his wife Ina acting as her sponsors. She went to Downey’s School and then to Loretto Academy, Guelph for her high school education. She graduated in 1919 as a stenographer and moved to Detroit with her sisters Aunt Jo and Aunt Verne in 1920.
Marie never married but was a very attractive lady and had several boyfriends. She worked in an office in Detroit all her life until she was stricken with cancer and died on May 4th, 1953. She is buried in at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Southfield, Michigan in section 16/343/10.
Cousin Maureen Seitz told me in a letter that Aunt Marie was a very pretty woman who never married but had a lot of boy friends, including me. I’ve heard stories that she and my other aunts put together a mock wedding ceremony for a little girl down the street and me when I was about 2 ˝ years old. We were all dressed up in our best clothes. I believe her name was Carla; she was killed crossing a street in the early 1950’s. Aunt Marie use to take me (Yep that’s me in the stroller) to the corner ice cream store when I was a toddler for ice cream on a regular basis. The store was on Schoolcraft about three blocks from our home at 14010 Rutherford. It appears from the look on my face that we were either going to or coming from the ice cream store
