OLD TOWN AND HOLDEN - Katherine Ola Boyle, 91, passed away Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Woodlands Senior Living in Brewer, ME. She was born on January 12, 1924, in E. Plantation, the daughter of the late Herbert and Rose (Fogg) Brewer and was the wife of the late Hubert J. Boyle of Old Town.
Katherine, better known to friends as "Kay," was raised on a farm and knew the value of hard work. During her married life, she worked for several families as a housekeeper as well as tending to her own. She loved to knit, making colorful afghans and slipper socks for many to enjoy.
During the last five years of her life, she resided with her son and his family until mid-December of 2014, where she took residence at Woodlands in Brewer.
She is survived by her son, Rocky Boyle and his wife, Arlene, of Holden; grandson, Adam Boyle of Bangor; granddaughter, Kristi Boyle and her partner, Tim Leuterio, of Corinth; and great-grandson, Jackson Leuterio, of Corinth. She is also survived by one brother, Wallace Brewer of E. Plantation; as well as many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Kay was predeceased by her husband, Hubert Boyle; and many brothers and sisters. The family wishes to thank Dr. Rodrigo Maegawa at Cancer Care of Maine and Woodlands Senior Living, both located in Brewer, for their wonderful care of our loved one.
Per Kays' request, there will be no visiting hours. Private graveside services will be held in the spring at Tapley Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Kay may be sent to the Lafayette Family Cancer Center, 33 Whiting Hill Road, Suite 1 & 21, Brewer, ME 04412. Arrangements by Duncan Funeral Home, Mars Hill.
