Priscilla 'Pat' Doyland went to be with our Lord. Pat was born in Detroit, Michigan.
After graduating from Deaconess School of Nursing in Detroit, Pat moved to San Francisco as an army cadet nurse. It was at this time she met and married the love of her life, Russell A. Doyland II. Russell was one of many wounded military patients who had returned from World War II and were put under Pat's tender-healing care. Pat and Russ were married for 63 years until Russell's passing in 2007.
Mom had a love of books, and she may have been the library's best customer. She never checked out just one book; it was stacks of books, and which she would return the next week for a brand new selection.
Whether it was greeting at Northwest Church, working-out with her exercise group, or cruising with her family, Mom was always ready to go and to be included in on the next adventure. Mom, you will be lovingly missed by all.
Mom was a devoted wife to Russell, and a loving mother to her son, Russell Doyland III and his wife Patty; her daughter Deborah Allison and her husband Richard. She was a proud grandmother of Lauren Griggs and her husband Scott, Christopher Doyland; and Joseph Doyland and his wife Robin; and a beaming great-grandmother of Allison. Mom cherished her family, which also included her nephew Dan Doyland and his wife Luanne and their daughters Erin and Carrie. Mom was additionally survived by her dear brother, William Leighton of Marine City, Michigan.
