Effective 9 pm Saturday, March 21, 2020, New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, had mandated by executive order #107 that all New Jersey residents shall remain home or in their place of residence unless they are obtaining essential goods or services from businesses or government agencies. All gatherings of individuals, such as funeral services, parties, celebrations, or other social events, are cancelled.
These restrictions will remain in effect until further notice from the state governor. Due to the current restrictions, there will not be a funeral service for Bonnie Doyle.
The family is grateful, and would like to extend their sincere thanks, for all the support and condolences from friends and the community in their time of mourning.
Bonnie Doyle, 64, of Neptune, NJ entered into eternal rest on the early morning of Sunday, April 12, 2020. She was born on July 30, 1955 to the late Eddie White and Ophelia Thomas at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, New Jersey. She was the eldest of five daughters.
Bonnie was raised in Neptune throughout her childhood. She had a short residency in Charlestown, Indiana in her adolescent years. She relocated back to Neptune and attended Neptune High School. She was raised as a Jehovah’s Witnesses. Bonnie dedicated her life to Jehovah and was baptized in 2008. She served Jehovah faithfully to the best of her ability.
Bonnie enjoyed being a mother before anything else. She worked at Green Grove Nursing Home for more than 20 years as a certified nursing assistant. Before her health declined, she was a bus aide for Neptune Schools.
She worked tirelessly as a single mother to ensure her children had everything they needed. She also loved her grandchildren with everything in her, creating memories with her sisters and helping people in any way she could. Oftentimes, she would have already set something up to help you before you even asked. That's the kind of heart she had. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, cooking, and she enjoyed her music.
Bonnie also knew everything that was going on in and around Neptune and Asbury Park, NJ. Anytime her children had done anything, she would have known about it before they could even tell on each other. If you asked her how she knew, she would say, “Just because I wasn’t there doesn't mean I won’t find out. I will never reveal my sources and smile at you while saying it.
The same is true for anyone else. Bonnie knew everyone and everyone knew Bonnie. One thing about her that everyone could attest to, Bonnie could and would keep a secret. You could share anything with her, and she would leave you with that guarantee. Anyone that considered her a friend knew what they had. Bonnie was solid through and through.
Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, Eddie White and Ophelia Thomas; one sister, Charlene Thomas; and second oldest son, Terrance Doyle. She leaves to cherish her memories, four sons, Richard Doyle, Tommy, Timothy and Tyrone McClain; one son-in-law, Billy McClain; sisters, Rosland, Barbara Doyle, and Zipporah Best; nine grandchildren, Bahiem, Seth, Armani, Essence Doyle, Timothy, Timisha, Tamiejah, Tyreek, and Tychelle McClain; one great grandson, Josiah Doyle; godchildren, Theresa, Toya, Edyee, Maurice Newsome, Theresa Bell, and Denasia Shorter; devoted friends, Diane Elliott, Carol, Pat and Jean Foster, Pam Smalls, and Karen Jones; and a multitude of other relatives, nieces, nephews and friends.
Her favorite scripture was Revelation 21:3-4. It reads as follows, “With that I heard a voice from the throne say, Look The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”.
Memories of You
They say memories are golden
Well maybe that is true.
We never wanted memories,
We only wanted you.
A million times we needed you,
A million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could save you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place
No one can ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway,
And heartache make a lane,
We’d walk the path to heaven,
To bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
~Your Sons & Grandchildren~
