Sister Monica Doyle, in religion Sister Paula Marie, f.j., of Royal Court, Riverview, New Brunswick, passed away on March 7, 2024, at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC in Moncton.  Born in Arichat, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Évangéline (Gagnon) Doyle.

She is survived by her sister-in-law, Blanche Doyle, as well as many nieces, nephews, and members of her religious family.  She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by one sister, Margaret; and four brothers: Edward, Paul, Francis, and Georges.

Monica dedicated herself in the field of education for nearly 25 years as a teacher or school principal.  She also worked in pastoral ministry and adult religious education in Nova Scotia and in New Brunswick.  Journeying with others was a personal enrichment and a challenge for her and she was always grateful to the Lord for his call and his faithfulness.  In 1970, Monica served as Provincial councillor and after a year of studies she was named Provincial Superior.  At the age of 62, she answered a call to go out on mission to Jamaica, West Indies, where she worked in pastoral ministry for 10 years.  Monica was an intelligent and serious woman, who was very interested in what went on in society.  She was also a woman of character and decision.

Visitation will be held at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (506-858-1900), on Tuesday March 12th, from 9 to 10 am.  A celebration of the Word will follow at 10 am at the funeral centre.  The funeral service will be streamed live; to view the funeral, go to Sister Monica Doyle’s obituary on the Frenette Website.  Interment will be at Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe.
