Born June 15, 1932, at Saratoga Hospital, she was the daughter of the late Morse and Elizabeth (Cahill) Blinn and lovingly raised by Lillian Scripter Doyle.
Peg was a lifelong resident of this area. She attended St. Alphonsus Elementary School and graduated from St. Mary’s Academy in 1950. She married Michael F. Doyle Jr. on Friday, October 13, 1950. They were married 15 years before Mike’s untimely death in January of 1966.
In her younger years, Peg worked at AT&T in Glens Falls as a telephone operator. After her husband’s death, she unselfishly devoted her life to raising her children. In 1969 Peg returned to work as a cafeteria worker where she met many lovely people to work with and retired in 1994 as Cook Manager of Hudson Falls Junior High School cafeteria. She also enjoyed her summer job working at Bob’s Grocery on Burgoyne Avenue in Hudson Falls. After her retirement, Peg and her sister delivered Meals on Wheels and greatly enjoyed visiting with the people they served.
Peg was a very soft-spoken, helping, kind-hearted person. You would be hard pressed to find a more loving and devoted mother, daughter, sister, friend, and neighbor. She loved to play the piano, enjoyed reading, completing crossword puzzles, gardening, and spending time with her family and friends.
In addition to her husband, Peg was predeceased by her mother Lillian S. Doyle, her beloved daughter Nancy B. Underwood and her step-son Michael F. Doyle III.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Deborah (David) Nassivera, Kelly (George) Liberty, Timothy C. Doyle, Karen (Richard) Jones, Bridget (Dave) Helwig, her loving granddaughter and caregiver, Krystel Guardiola, along with numerous other grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews.
At Peg’s request, there will be no calling hours.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on 11 a.m. on Thursday at St. Mary’s/St. Paul’s Catholic Church, On the Park, Hudson Falls with The Rev. Thomas Babiuch, pastor, officiating.
