    The “Stubbs” kids wanted to pass along our condolences and are sorry that we can not be there on Friday to celebrate Dot’s life with your family. It is truly the end of an era but thankfully there are many children and grandchildren to carry on all of the Boyle traditions that we were all blessed to receive. Dot was always so kind and welcoming to our family – she will not be forgotten.

    Lots of love – Kathy, Maureen, John & Shelagh

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. We considered Jack and Dot our ‘second parents’ and fondly remember all those years when we picked them up for Mass and then off with the ‘breakfast club’ afterward.Since we are in Arizona we will not be able to attend the service. We take some comfort in knowing dear Mary, Dot and Jack are together again.

    Hi Rick and Dee
    Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this time of remembrance of your mother’s wonderful life.
    So many fond memories have come to my mind this past week. Dot was certainly a part of my life as I grew up in Lethbridge, and all the marvellous gatherings we had in Lethbridge and Granum.
    I was blessed to have known her in my life.
