Mrs. BOYLE was born November 11, 1917 in Wilbern, Illinois, a daughter of Charles H. (Sr.) and Winifred E. (HOWARD) DUFFY. On May 16, 1942 she married Fredric D. BOYLE in Palymra, Missouri. He preceded her in death on November 20, 2009.

During the 1930's and '40's (sic), Mrs. BOYLE taught ballet and tap dancing. She was an enthusiastic reader (a trait she passed on to her children and grandchildren) and an accomplished artist in pastels, charcoal, water color, and oil painting. She acted as her husband's receptionist in his chiropractic practice prior to their retirement in 1998. Since 1955 she was a member of the christian Church, where, in earlier years, she assisted with numerous church funeral luncheons and enjoyed her friends in the Christian Women's Fellowship. Some of her favorite times were spent playing games with her grandchildren. Her scrumptious apple and pumpkin pies were always eagerly anticipated at family dinners.

Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Jonathan (Sr.) and Caroyn BOYLE, grandchildren: Sarah (Jamie) HOFFMAN-KOETTEL, Jonathan, Jr. (Kristin), Patrick (Jessica), Joseph (Abigail), and Bridget BOYLE, four great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Pam HOFFMAN, in 1976, her parents, and sisters: Coetta DUFFY (in infancy) and Winifred LONG, and brothers Charles (Jr.), Howard, and Robert DUFFY.
