She also took pleasure in creating a warm, welcoming and interesting home. She was a bargain hunter who often bestowed her finds on friends and family.

Quick-witted but never sharp-tongued, she was well-known for her great, good humour, deep compassion, and inclination to place others' needs before her own -- right up to the time of her last hospitalization, when she expressed compassion for 'that poor doctor' who had just discussed end-of-life matters with both her and her roommate. She was a 1957 graduate of Bayview Academy. Besides her husband, she leaves two daughters: Mary E. Daniels, and Linda M. Daniels, and Linda's husband, Bill W. Hopkins; and three grandchildren: Liam, Cormac, and Malachy Hopkins, all of Providence. She also leaves a sister, Maureen (Martin) Hyman, of Foxboro, Mass., and a brother, John F.

(Gustafson) Devine. A Marine Corps veteran, he had served in Japan and also in Hawaii, where he saved the life of a downed pilot by swimming 300 yards offshore and pulling the unconscious man from his plane before it sank, in recognition of which he was given a field promotion to the rank of corporal. Mr. Devine had entered the Rhode Island State Police Training Academy in 1963. A member of the state police for more than 20 years, he had served in every barracks, and in the detective division, before retiring in 1985 as a captain. He participated in many special training programs, including a course for narcotics officers, at the New York Police Academy; a homicide investigators' course, at the New England State Police Academy; a Hazardous Material Handling School, in Denver, Colo.; a dignitary-protection course with the Secret Service; and a three-month course at the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy, in Quantico, Va.

DOHERTY [Attleboro MA Sun Chronicle, Saturday 29 Sept 2007] Attleboro - William Joseph "Wild Bill" Doherty, 76, of North Avenue, died on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2007 at his residence surrounded by the love of his devoted and dedicated family. He was the adored husband of Nancy E. (O'Boyle) Fontaine Doherty, whom he affectionately called his "Fancy Nancy." Mr. and Mrs. Doherty were married on Nov. 26, 1983. Born in North Attleboro on Dec. 26, 1930, he was a belated Christmas gift and the only child of the late William Joseph and Blanche Marion (Nichols) Doherty. He was the beloved maternal grandson of the late Minnie Nichols. He was raised in Attleboro and later resided in Norton for 12 years, and in Foxboro for 15 years prior to returning to his native city of Attleboro in 1979. He attended Attleboro schools and often spoke fondly of his time spent at Bliss School and the late principal, Mr. Studley. As a teenager, Mr. Doherty did not tell the truth about his age and served as a member of the State Guard of Massachusetts, and achieved the rank of private with the 28th Infantry from his enlistment on July 15, 1946 until his honorable discharge on Jan. 31, 1947. As a mechanic, Mr. Doherty was employed at numerous companies in the greater Attleboro area and in later years was employed as an oil truck delivery man prior to his retirement several years ago. He had a lifelong love for trains, and years ago at the suggestion of his wife, Nancy, he decided to build a wooden train of his own. It is not a particularly big train, nor is it a replica. The miniature wooden freight train he designed and built sits in the front yard of his North Avenue home. It has become the object of curiosity by many passersby for the past 14 years. It took Mr. Doherty, who had built two homes himself previously, about a month to build the train. Constructed of native pine and discarded lawnmower wheels, it has four cars including a flat car, caboose and tender car filled with real logs to fuel the steam engine. His greatest satisfaction came when he was able to enjoy watching people, especially those with children, stop and look at his creation. In addition to trains, he had a love for motorcycles, in particular, a 1953 Indian that he purchased and completely restored. His family recalls with fondness a man who "could fix absolutely anything." He loved the sounds of country music and was a longtime fan of Johnny Cash. In addition to his wife of 23 years, he leaves two children: Janet Spencer and her husband Mark Spencer of Plainville, and Shanna Doherty of Woonsocket, R.I.; a very special grandson, Christopher William Doherty of North Attleboro; five stepchildren: Douglas Fontaine of Attleboro; Hope Walsh and her husband J. Douglas Walsh of Seekonk, Michelle Frietas and her husband Gary Frietas of Attleboro, Brian Fontaine of Attleboro and Lynne Fontaine of Attleboro; his mother-in-law, Bertha A. (Kelly) O'Boyle of Attleboro; his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, William and Marianne (Rahe) O'Boyle of West Yarmouth; nine additional grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was the father of the late Doreen Doherty, who died in 1994. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend visitation on Sunday, Sept. 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Memorial Chapel of the Dyer-Lake Funeral Home, 161 Commonwealth Ave. (exit 5 off I-95 N or S, go right at end of ramp, ¾ mile on left), Attleboro Falls, North Attleboro.

DONNELLY [Providence RI Journal, Tuesday 25 March 2003] GLOCESTER -- David F. Donnelly Jr., a former Providence Journal executive, bulldog investigative reporter and, in retirement, entrepeneurial publisher and businessman, died Saturday at home after a lengthy illness. He was 61. He was the husband of Constance (Lee) Donnelly. They and their family lived on Anan Wade Road, in a house Mr. Donnelly had built himself. Mr. Donnelly served in several capacities during his 30-year career at the Journal, but is perhaps best remembered as an investigative reporter probing the then-powerful Mafia in Providence. He was one of the few reporters to ever interview Raymond L.S. Patriarca, then the reputed head of the New England Mafia. He is also remembered for a dustup that he and a fellow reporter had with Raymond Badway, another reputed mobster, during their quest for an interview on Federal Hill. The incident prompted newsroom wags to post a still movie picture of knights in battle, with the notation, "You can't tell the Goodways from the Badways without a program." It hung beside Mr. Donnelly's desk in the newsroom for years. Mr. Donnelly became a Journal state-staff reporter in 1965, after serving in the Army and receiving a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University. He moved quickly to the newspaper's Providence office, becoming a copy editor, an Evening Bulletin staff reporter, and the creator of the "Ask Us" column, and later serving as assistant city editor, then city editor of The Evening Bulletin. Later, he worked on the executive level, for Charles P. O'Donnell, the newspaper's senior vice president for administration, dealing with acquisitions and strategic planning. After transferring to the Journal's broadcast division, he was responsible for launching JTV, one of the nation's first computer-illustrated news services on cable television, and he briefly ran the company's New England paging division. Later, he was involved in newspaper acquisitions; various real-estate projects; and activities that included a Providence Journal publishing effort in the former Soviet Union, launched after the collapse of communism. With his wife, Mr. Donnelly had founded Cranston Mini-Golf, in Edgewood, which they had operated from 1991 to 1997. This seasonal business ultimately consisted of a miniature golf course, automated batting cages and an ice-cream store. In 1996, he took early retirement from the Journal, and purchased Treasure Chest, a 50,000-circulation newspaper serving the antiques industry. He then moved the paper's headquarters from Manhattan, N.Y., to Rhode Island, and operated the business for six years, until he sold it because of illness. Active in civic affairs, Mr. Donnelly was a founder and two-term president, in the 1980s, of the Downtown Providence Improvement Association, a nonprofit group that hired workers to clean and beautify the city sidewalks and malls. A graduate of Providence College, he received an Army ROTC commission there, and remained active in the Army Reserve for 29 years, until retiring as a lieutenant colonel. Most recently, he had been attached to the 443rd Civil Affairs Company and the 76th Division Maneuver Training Command, in Cranston. In addition to Providence College and Columbia University, he also had studied at the Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration, and at the U.S. Army Command & General Staff College, in Fort Leavenworth, Kan. He was born in Providence, a son of the late David F. and Eleanor A. (Donahue) Donnelly. In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Kathryn L. Donnelly of North Scituate and Constance A. Donnelly, of Providence; and a a sister, Susanna Duffy of Litchfield, N.H. The funeral will be held on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. from the Russell J. Boyle & Son Funeral Home, 142 Centerville Rd., Warwick, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 in St. Joseph Church, Hope Street, Providence.

DONOVAN [Newport RI Daily News, On-line Obituaries Sept 2007] Newport - Leo P. Donovan, 93, of 22 Bateman Avenue, died peacefully at Forest Farm Health Care Center on Friday, August 31, 2007. He was the husband of the late Paula (Orth) Donovan. Born in Newport, RI, on October 23, 1913 and was a lifelong resident of Newport’s Fifth Ward, he was the son of the late John F. and Mary (Donovan) Donovan.

In his first coaching experience, he led the St. Augustin grade school basketball team to a city and state parochial championship. In the 1930’s, he played semi-pro basketball for St. Augustin’s and Narragansett Clothing teams, which played against the top semi, and pro teams of that era.

Leo coached football, basketball, baseball and tennis at Rogers High School, the Portsmouth Priory and St. George’s School; his teams won the state basketball championship in 1946 and tennis championship in 1947 while at Rogers.

The class of 1966 at St. George’s School dedicated their yearbook to Leo, stating, “He was a great person and a great athlete … his wonderful common sense and his ability to be fair and honest, and to avoid pretense…” were his attributes the students admired most. In 1996, he was inducted into the St. George’s Hall of Fame as a coach and friend. In 2002, he was inducted into the 1st class of the Newport Athletic Hall of Fame, in recognition of his athletic ability and contribution to sports on Aquidneck Island.
