Debra Doyle, PhD [30 November 1952-31 October 2020]

It is with great sorrow that I report that Debra Doyle, my beloved bride of 42 years, died this evening at 1841 hours. She died of an apparent cardiac event, at home, in my arms.

    All Saint’s is November 1st, which is why October 31st is All Hallow’s E’en. All Saints is for all the saints, known and unknown. All Souls is November 2nd, and it’s for everyone.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met Debra back in the early 2000s and have considered her an online friend for around 20 years. I will miss her hugely. Her hard nosed but always humane wisdom and her real love of so many subjects made her a real pleasure to know.

  8. I’m so sorry to hear this. We were long-term Livejournal mutuals. I will miss Debra very much. My condolences.
