Kathleen Theresa Boyle
January 09, 1942 - May 26, 2021
Kathleen Boyle, 79 years old, passed away quietly in her sleep on May 26, 2021 in her home with her husband by her side, after fighting a long illness. She left this world as she lived, with grace and dignity. She leaves behind her beloved husband of 55 years, Ronald, and three children; Tony Boyle, Jacqueline Woods, and Christopher Boyle, along with 8 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.
Kathleen was born on January 9, 1942 in Staten Island, New York. She was the youngest of three children and has now joined her brothers Frank and Anthony, along with her parents, Valentine LoBianco and Christine Calio LoBianco in heaven. Kathleen graduated from American University in Washington, D.C. and became a teacher. After she married Ronald Boyle, they started a family, and she dedicated her life to her family and children. Later in life Kathleen became a realtor, and anyone that worked with her experienced the dedication, love, and loyalty that her family was so blessed to have known for years. She was also a devoted Catholic, serving her church with pride for over 20 years.
Kathleen always expressed her love to those close to her, and was a loyal friend to all that knew her. She fought her illness like a Roman warrior, just to spend more time with her husband, her kids, and her beautiful grandchildren and great grandchildren. All the while, her loving and devoted husband never left her side. Kathleen and Ron shared the kind of love and commitment one reads about in a book, or sees in the movies.
Kathleen will be remembered for her dedication to being a wife to her husband, a mother to her children, and a friend to anyone that needed someone to talk to. She lived her life using her God-given gifts of listening, laughing, and loving others, all with a strong graceful presence. She took her roles of wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother very seriously. She will be known for her strength of character, grit, and class. Kathleen was an accomplished horseback rider, avid tennis player, world traveler, voracious reader, and an amazing cook. She was most happy when she was spending time with her husband and family. She has a beautiful soul that will be sorely missed, though her legacy will live on in the family she has dedicated her life to loving.
