We will be there in spirit over the next couple of days as everyone gathers to celebrate you at your Funeral Mass. Welcome to Heaven! We love you Sr. Kathleen.

Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Sr. Kathleen Doyle. We had the pleasure of her company when she ate with my mom, Beatrice Moynihan, at Cabrini. She was very pleasant, a good conversationalist, witty and wise. She became a good and caring friend who will be missed. Rest in Peace.
