1924 – 2019

Ella Louise Sargent Doyle of Winchester, Virginia, passed away December 28, 2019 at her home in The Willows of Meadow Branch, at age 95. She was born in Stephens City, Virginia, in December, 1924, the daughter of Samuel and Atta Beatty Sargent, and was the last member of her immediate family.

Ella loved her sports, especially biking and roller skating and delighted everyone with her stories about being a “fancy roller skater” until age 65. She graduated from Stephens City High School and was Secretary and Class Poet of her senior class, and was a member of the Frederick County Band, playing first the coronet and then the snare drum.

Ella and her husband, Dan, owned and operated the D. A. Doyle Cabinet Co. for 50 years. Ella trained many VOT students at the “shop” and so enjoyed helping those young women realize their potential in the workplace. Dan and Ella also volunteered with The Gideons for over 20 years, traveling frequently to various conferences.

Dan predeceased Ella in 2001. Surviving are a daughter, Danna, of Winchester, and of Jacksonville, Florida, her son, Chief (Ret.USN) Daniel A. Doyle, Jr. (Sharon), granddaughters, Jennifer Hughes (Dean) and Melissa Vann (Patrick), great grandchildren, Logan and Lucy Hughes, and Greta and Della Vann.

Arrangements are with Jones Funeral Home, Winchester. A graveside service will be conducted on January 3, 2020, at 11:00 am at Shenandoah Memorial Park, by Pastor Vernon Bray, Chaplain of The Willows, and Chaplain Ken Patrick of Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are requested to be made to Blue Ridge Hospice of Winchester, 333 West Cork Street, Winchester, VA 22601.

Danna, our entire family share in our sincere sympathies for the passing of your Mom. Mom has great memories of your Mom and her from their childhood in Stephens City and later at the Willows. Our family, including our spouses and Mom's oldest grandchild grew to know her in later years. Please know that you, your brother and his family will remain in our thoughts and prayers. Maxine, Ann, Jimmy, Sherry and families.

Ella was always friendly, smiling, and ready to chat. I met her when my mother moved into the Willows in late July 2018. Ella happened to know friends and relatives of my Mom going back many years. Ella will be missed. My condolences to her family.

Ella Doyle was a neighbor of Vivian Smallridge’s at The Willows . I got to know her these past few years when I would care for my mother. We would share stories of her years on Franklin Street as her family grew up with my husbands family. She was a shining star and will be truly missed. Brenda Koonce
