    Dr Kathleen M Doyle passed away peacefully at home in Glenn Falls NY on May 14th after battle with cancer.

    She graduated cum laude MA in 1968 and received her PhD in 1979 from St John's University

    Dr Doyle had a productive resourceful life and career receiving many honors and awards. She held numerous offices in professional organizations and appointed to many committees and task forces.

    Throughout her remarkable career as a Psychologist, educator and administrator - she worked tirelessly to promote high quality standards for patient care.

    From July 1990 to April 2020 Dr Doyle was  employed by the NYS Education Department

    When Licensure was finally realized for Clinical Laboratory Science- she immediately presided as the Executive Secretary over the State Board of the Office of Professions

    She was committed and a dedicated advocate of the laboratory License and admired and appreciated the behind the scenes professionals.

    Those who were honored to know her personally and/or professionally experienced her astute intelligence and knowledge and quick and detailed and witty conversation.

    She was truly a woman of substance and will be sincerely missed.

    As one of the original members of the New York State Professional Standards Committee for Laboratory Per­sonnel back in the 90's, obtaining licensure for laboratorians was an uphill battle. Dr. Doyle picked up the gauntlet and was a strong advocate for us. She leaves a legacy that few will ever match.
