Margaret Doyle (nee Loughran) of the Bronx, NY, passed peacefully on February 18th, 2023 at the age of 91. Margaret was born on July 23, 1931 in Belfast, Ireland to Arthur and Margaret (Price) Loughran. She immigrated to the Bronx, NY in 1953.

She was lucky to have the love and affection of extended family that included all of her nieces, nephews and in-laws and friends.

Margaret enjoyed creating jewelry and handcrafting knitted and crocheted gifts to share with young and old. She was a retiree of Montefiore Hospital (Local 1199) and worked in Alexander's Buying Department and Citron’s Hardware. 

She especially enjoyed being with family and dancing.  We will miss her love, enthusiasm, good nature…and her smile.
