Betty June Doyle
April 5, 1935 – October 16, 2020
Betty June Doyle was born Betty June Brown in Rush Springs, Oklahoma on April 5th, 1935. Her parents were farmers, and she was the 2nd of five children. She attended high school in Sterling, OK and later the University of Science of Arts in Chickasha. She moved to Oklahoma City in the mid-1950’s and met Vaughn Doyle whom she married in August, 1957. Their marriage lasted until Vaughn’s passing in 2012.
Betty very much enjoyed traveling with her husband and then with their four sons. She also took occasional trips with her sisters, with whom she remained very close throughout her life. There always was so much joy and laughter being shared between them every time they were together. She also had many close friends whom she cherished and were a very important part of her life.
Volunteerism, was a lifestyle for Betty. She gave so much more of herself than she took from others. She always helped at the local church and at her kids’ schools. She delivered meals to the shut-in elderly for years, served as a Cub Scout Den mother, and was once the President of the Oklahoma City Jaycee Janes. She enjoyed sewing, cooking, decorating, arts and crafts, oil painting and music (a big fan of the country oldies Earnest Tubb, Roy Rogers, Patsy Cline, etc...).
Betty was especially fond of her two grandsons, Ian and Ben. They were the light of her life. When she spoke about them she would glow. As she did with her sons, she loved and nurtured her grandchildren as much as any person could. We all have memories of her unconditional love and kindness. Those memories have made our lives so rich and will live inside of us forever.
In addition to her grandchildren, Betty is survived by sons Patrick, Michael and Timothy, and her three younger sisters Dorothy, Gina and Lois. She was preceded in death by her husband Vaughn, older brother Bobby and son Brian.
Donations that anyone would like to make in Betty’s memory can be sent to Cornerstone United Methodist Church (Children’s programs) in Oklahoma City. You can also just think of her, volunteer, or make someone smile to honor her spirit.
