To the Coyle Family,

On behalf of the membership of the Crow’s Nest Officers Club I wish to pass our sympathy on the passing of Mrs. Coyle, or Mickie as she was known at the Club. Both she and Jock were long time members who were so much fun to be around and provided great spirit and enthusiasm in developing the “Nest” into the wonderful place it is today..

The staff at Coles Bookstore in the Avalon Mall were very saddened to hear of Mrs. Coles passing. She was a lovely woman who always brought a smile to our faces every time she came to see us. We will miss her very much. Many condolences to the Coyle family for their love. Joanne and the staff of Coles Avalon Mall.

Sheena. So sorry for the loss of your Mother. Our thoughts & prayers are with you & your family at this sad time. Sincerely, Alice (Buckley) & Bob Collins

Mickie and Jock are shining lights in Crow’s Nest history and their stories are still enjoyed by those of us who were privileged to know them. When Jock passed away, Mickie was kind enough to give me his Crow’s Nest tie, which I still wear at the club on special occasions, with pride.

Magda and I send our condolences to Mickie’s family and friends. She was a very special lady.

Know that we ache for you. And no one better than God, understands the depth of your pain and can help you cope with your disquieting thoughts. Do believe the words of Psalm 34:18 “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” Until then, may you get the strength and inner peace you need in the coming days.

The Coyle Family: My deepest sympathies on your loss. I remember your Mom (and Dad) being so kind to me all those many years ago. I hold a special place in my heart for both of them, and all of you. May your memories of joy and laughter bring you peace through this season of sorrow.

Sheena and family , so sorry to hear about your loss. Mrs. Coyle was such a lovely kind lady. Deepest condolences to you and you’re family . May she rest in peace.
