She was the wife of the late Robert A. Doyle. Born in Fall River, a daughter of the late Ernest and Jessie (Casey) Jackson, she had previously lived in Tiverton, Providence, Virginia, and Fall River for many years, and in Somerset for 11 years. Her work chronicled the highs and lows of a musician who subordinated a career to a husband and five children. Using the gender-neutral "Lou," she sent rough "lead sheets" of her music to great band leaders, including Tommy Dorsey and Enoch Light. Their letters encouraged her to come to New York, and she ventured out once or twice before becoming ill. From the mid-1950s, she sent taped piano renditions and typed lyrics. About about 700 performances of her more than 170 songs survive on cassette tape. They were discovered in 1992, when she moved to Clifton, and were compiled into three 90-minute cassettes. Mrs. Doyle published her first CD in 1998. She made an appearance on a Newport music show, and host Saucy Sylvia performed several of Mrs. Doyle's tunes. The Fall River Herald News published a column noting that if she had not moved to Clifton, and if the founder of the center, Clifton Greenwood, had not been a supporter of the arts for his residents, her music might have gone unheard. Greenwood allowed her to bring her Spinet into a dayroom, and she often played for the other residents. After the release of her CD, 50 of her songs were posted on her Web site, www.loudoyle.com. A graduate of Bridgewater State Teachers College, she taught elementary school in Somerset many years ago. She leaves three sons, Robert O.

DUFFY [Providence RI Journal, Sunday 30 Nov 2003] Portsmouth -- James F. Duffy, 83, of Indiana Avenue, formerly of Pawtucket, a former American League umpire and National Basketball Association referee, died yesterday at Newport Hospital. Mr. Duffy had been a referee in the NBA for 13 years, breaking into the league in 1947, when he came in as a substitute for an absent referee, after officiating a preliminary high school game at the former Rhode Island Auditorium. At the same time, he was beginning a career as a major-league umpire, again being in the right place at the right time, when, on July 3, 1946, another umpire failed to show up for an assignment in a game in the former New England League in Pawtucket. By 1949, Mr. Duffy was called up to the International League, where he worked for two seasons before being offered a contract to umpire in the American League at the end of 1950. He had worked for three years in the big leagues before announcing his resignation in February 1955, after being demoted to the International League. At the time, he charged that members of the Red Sox and White Sox organizations had pressured Will Harridge, then president of the American League, to remove him from the umpiring staff. At a Red Sox-Yankee game in Fenway Park late in 1953, he was embroiled in a disputed play involving Billy Goodman, Jim Piersall and Lou Boudreau, which ended in an injury to Goodman when he prevented Piersall from reaching Mr. Duffy. While umpiring in the American League, he took a hiatus from officiating professional basketball games, but by the time he announced his resignation from the baseball diamond, he was already back on the basketball court. He was a colorful referee, never one to shy away from letting players such as Tommy Heinsohn of the Boston Celtics know what he was thinking. Former Boston sports writer Dave "The Colonel" Egan nicknamed Mr. Duffy "Jam-A-Day," because of his frequent confrontations with players and managers. Owner of the former St. Louis Hawks, Ben Kerner, held a Jim Duffy night to get back into his good graces. Mr. Duffy called former NBA Commissioner Maurice Podoloff to ask what he should do, and Podoloff replied, "Jim, take whatever you can get." In 1960, he refereed all seven games of the NBA finals, a true testament to his officiating skills. Mr. Duffy had also been commissioner of Legion Baseball in Rhode Island for several years. He was the husband of the late Elizabeth Grace (Mulcahey) Duffy. Born in Pawtucket, a son of the late Thomas and Mary (Kennedy) Duffy, he had lived in Pawtucket for most of his life before moving to Portsmouth 10 years ago. He was an Army Air Forces veteran of World War II, flying on cargo planes on the Burma route. He was a graduate of St. Raphael Academy, and had been a communicant of St. Teresa Church for many years. He leaves three daughters, Claire E. Fisher and Kathleen D. McGlinn, both of Portsmouth, and Patricia D. Morris of Cumberland; two brothers, Thomas J. Duffy of Little Compton and Raymond E. Duffy of Pawtucket; a sister, Francis Hodge of Cumberland; four grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. The funeral, with military honors, will be held Thursday at 9 a.m. from Manning-Heffern Funeral Home, 68 Broadway, Pawtucket, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 in St. Teresa Church, Pawtucket. Burial will be in Mount St. Mary Cemetery, Pawtucket.

Born in Providence on July 27, 1996, she was a "gift from God" and the only child of Frank P. Duffy Jr. and Colleen (Cronin) Duffy of North Attleboro. Meghan attended the Martin School in North Attleboro, where she completed the fourth grade, and was privately tutored for her fifth year of school as her illness prevented her from attending regularly. Her fellow classmates began sixth grade last week. A lifelong resident of North Attleboro, she attended St. Mark's Roman Catholic Church in the Attleboro Falls section of North Attleboro. Everyone that met Meghan was inspired by her level of maturity, courage and selflessness. She was diagnosed with cancer as an infant and overcame insurmountable hurdles to lead a perfect childhood filled with all the things loved by children. Recently, her illness recurred and she handled the illness with bravery and determination that served as a shining example for other patients, family and friends and caregivers in the medical field. Among her favorite pastimes was spending time with her friends; collecting American Girl dolls and Webkinz; time spent downhill skiing in the winter months; playing video games and working on her personal home computer; and she was an ardent reader. Recently, she found peace, comfort and happiness in Abby, the family's new 8-month-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Meghan loved the art of dance, and was a student of the New England Dance Academy in Attleboro. As a lacrosse player, she was a member of the Tri-Boro Titans. She treasured the time spent traveling with her parents to such places as Florida, Williamsburg, Virginia, Puerto Rico and just weeks ago enjoyed the time the family spent in Bermuda, where she was able to swim with dolphins. Although her life was not defined by her illness, she was a tireless volunteer, fundraiser and advocate for the Jimmy Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. She was her Dad's "Pedal Partner" for the Pan Mass Challenge to benefit the organization's fundraising efforts for research and development. On Sunday, up to 50 individuals will be participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk Marathon in Boston as part of a team participating in her honor and given the name "Megathoners" by Meghan. Earlier this summer her fellow students and friends at Martin School in North Attleboro organized "Pedal Power," a bike ride that raised an incredible $31,000 to benefit the children's oncology department at both Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Boston's Children's Hospital. Although her years were short, she left an impression on all those left behind. "Like a butterfly, spread your wings, Meghan, and fly. Your beauty has touched all." In addition to her devoted parents, she leaves her maternal grandmother, Mary Agnes (Leonard) Cronin of Dennis, formerly of Lynnfield; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and caregivers. She was the maternal granddaughter of the late David L. Cronin, and the paternal granddaughter of the late Dr. Frank P. Duffy, M.D. and Barbara A. (Kotrys) Duffy. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend visitation on Monday, Sept. 17, 2007 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Mark's Roman Catholic Church, 105 Stanley St., Village of Attleboro Falls, North Attleboro.
