Obituary for Dale C. Doyle

Dale C. (Johansen) Doyle, 72, of Broad Brook, wife of the late Robert F. Doyle, passed away peacefully on Dec. 25, 2021 at St. Francis Hospital with her family by her side. She was born in Hartford to the late John P. Johansen Jr. and Lois (Joyner) Parlee. She was predeceased by her brother John P. Johansen III.

People who knew Dale remember her as a kind, caring, fun-loving woman who had a joke for every occasion. Her outgoing personality made her a perfect fit for the hospitality industry, the field in which she worked most of her life. Dale was deeply devoted to her family and friends, and she saw the best in people, always. Some of her most cherished memories were times spent in Pennsylvania at the log cabin she shared with her husband Bob and their dog Bandit.

Dale is survived by her two daughters and sons-in-law, Melissa & Michael Koneski of Windsor, and Angela & Chris Sawyer of Bristol, brother Kurt Johansen of Springfield, niece Samantha Chouinard and family of Windsor Locks, beloved aunt Alma Mooney of Windsor Locks, and several cousins and dear friends.

Relatives and friends may gather on Saturday Jan. 8, 2022 from 1-3 PM at the Bassinger & Dowd Funeral Home, 37 Gardner Street, East Windsor. In appreciation of the care and assistance that Bob and Dale received, memorial donations may be made to The American Legion, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines Fund, 864 Wethersfield Avenue, Hartford CT 06114.
