I am late to write this message, as I just found out that dear Good has passed. Oh she was a lovely, fun, exciting person! She and my mom, Mary Patricia (O’Driscoll) McDougall were dear friends. Mom (Drick) was one of the Spooks. Goog was elegant beyond belief, interesting, kind, generous and always full of love. I remember her treating me so sweetly and specially as a child, and right up until the last time I saw her in Oct/23, we had such a wonderful time together. Oh I am sad, but I know she is having alot of laughs surrounded by all those who passed before her, waiting to greet her with loving arms. My deepest condolences, Rosalie McDougall

Maureen and family
So sorry to hear of Louise’s passing

Thinking of you all at this difficult time. I will miss our monthly chats.
Grateful that our paths crossed.

Dear Alan, Maureen and families. We just heard of dear Louise’s passing. So very sorry for your tremendous loss.. Louise was a beautiful person in every way. When you love deeply the pain of loss is that much deeper and we know she was loved so very much. Thinking of you all. God bless, Lynn and Lester

The most wonderful, sincere and giving, of herself, person I have ever had the pleasure to know. Louise was a friend to the Healey family for many decades. I was pleased to find, during the last year, that she was on line. We did connect and it was, as always, a delight to speak to her again. I’m so glad for that opportunity, she was the same gracious person I had always known and remembered everyone by name., and reminisced about times gone by. If this lady doesn’t Rest In Peace, then eternal peace cannot be earned. Much Love, Louise.

John, Maureen and family, we are sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. . We always enjoyed our time with her, she as a wonderful cheerful lady. Sorry we are unable to attend service or wake.

My deepest condolences to “Auntie” Louise’s family.
Auntie Louise was a beautiful, kind and gracious lady like her sisters Mrs. Power and “Auntie” Bibby. . May Auntie Louise’s gentle , caring and loving soul Rest In Peace.

John , Maureen and Family, we are so sorry to learn that your Mom has passed. She and her sisters were great friends of my Dad, Bill Kendall who boarded at their house on. Barnes Road for many years. Sorry we were unable to attend the wake and attend the Funeral mass today. due to circumstances beyond our control. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time. Please accept our sincere sympathies. At this sad time.
Sincerely ,
Peter and Janet Kendall

Maureen, Steve and family. Sorry to hear of your mothers passing..

John, Denise, Kristin, Heather and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Hugs

So sorry to hear of Louise’s passing. She was a great friend of my parents Agnes and Rupert Greene. I can always remember how kind and thoughtful Louise was to me when my parents were globing around the world. Many good meals and chats with Louise over the years. My Condolences to all of the family and her Memory will always live on. Take care and cherish the sweet memories. Gerry and Marilyn Greene

To Louise’s family, I want to express my deepest condolences on her passing. Here at Tiffany Village, she was a loving and devoted person; she joined our weekly Rosary group faithfully for years and would come every time she could, in spite of her discomfort. We miss her and our thoughts and prayers are with you all May you rest in peace, Louise.

So sorry to hear of Louise’s passing. We had great fun playing bridge for years. She was a kind, thoughtful, and beautiful woman.

Maureen, my sincere condolences to you, Steve, and the girls on the loss of a very important and special person in your lives. Whenever you spoke of Louise it was always with love and admiration. She seemed like an amazing person who was always there to support her family and not only was she your mom but also a loyal friend. I didn’t know your mom personally, but I remember her from the Basilica. She was very dedicated and committed to the ministry of our church serving in the role as a Eucharistic minister, a role she performed with such dignity and respect. Let all your wonderful memories of your mom be a comfort to you during this sad time and may you continue to find consolation in remembrance of her wonderful life. May Louise Rest in Peace and may the perpetual light shine upon her soul.

Maureen & family- I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, Louise. She is now reunited with all those who have gone before. You have a lifetime of happy memories. Take care. RIP Mrs. Doyle.

Maureen & family,
I’m so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Please accept my condolences on your loss.
Janet O’Brien

Maureen and family. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mother. May beautiful memories bring you comfort and peace.

Maureen and Family. Deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother. I only met her a few times many years ago, but she was one beautiful lady. However, since we both worked at government and now in our volunteer role, I feel I have kept up to date on her many wonderful years and your dedication to her. God bless you all at this sad time.

The family of the late Patricia Kennedy wishes to send their condolences to the family of Louise Doyle, known most affectionately to them as “Goog”. “Goog” and “Fitzy” were two of the founding members of “The Spooks”, dear friends since they started school. There was never a more devoted group who travelled together, laughed, cried and comforted each other….but mostly laughed. While Louise’s loss is felt most heavily by her family, the families of her fellow “Spooks” will miss her smile and very presence after a true lifetime of precious memories.

The family of the late Patricia (Fitzgerald) Kennedy

It was an absolute pleasure to know you miss Louise. May there be endless drives and quality time in heaven above – I hope you are finally having your cup of tea and a kitkat with Winnie. Big, big hugs to your family. “She’ll bloom again..”

Maureen & all the family, My sincere condolences to all of on the death of Louise. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this time. Your beautiful memories will sustain you all.
God Bless you all.

Susan and I express our deepest sympathy to the entire Doyle and Binden families but especially to our friend John on the passing of your stepmother Louise of whom you always spoke so fondly.

Our deepest sympathy to all Louise’s family, relatives and friends. Louise, Winnie and Marie were part of a wonderful group of life-long friends of our parents, Angus & Maureen Campbell. Treasured memories of a lovely person -May Louise rest in peace.

Maureen and family – sorry to hear the news about your mother. May you have comfort in knowing that you have family and friends who share your sorrow.

Holding dear memories and loving thoughts of Auntie Louise in our hearts during this time. She was such a dear friend of my grandmother’s and the whole group of Spooks were, and are, the perfect example of lifelong friendship. Sending our heartfelt condolences to the whole family.

To all the family and friends, I am thinking of you all and send prayers and hugs. Louise was great friend, cousin, neighbour and will be missed by many. But I know there is great celebration and card games on the go as she is reunited with her heavenly family and friends. Thoughts and memories of Louise can only bring a smile to my face. What a wonderful lady. Blessings to all. I am in NS still so will watch the live stream. With you all in spirit.

Dear Robert, David and family,
We know how much you loved her, how good she was to you and how good you were to her. It does not get better than that – a life well lived and well loved. Thinking of you all, Jan, Emily and Rob Pitt

A church friend of my parents, Mary & Bill Maher., Louise spoke so kindly of them every time I met her. She was a beautiful woman, so kind & thoughtful. Sincere condolences to her family.

I met Louise through her husband Joe, who was a great friend of mine and with whom I worked many years. I was so sorry to hear of Louise’s passing. My deepest sympathy to all the family at this time.

God Bless,

Ed Woodrow
