Minette McKenna

Kathy Doyle on Minette McKenna

Kathy Doyle, CEO of Doyle, shares her memories of Minette McKenna ahead of Minette’s Angels Celebration of Angels gala on Thursday, April 26th at the Park Savoy Estate.

“I knew Minette McKenna as she was the wife of Ken McKenna – our CFO at Doyle,” Doyle says. “Minette was gentle and strong and funny and compassionate.  She was a devoted wife and mother filled with immense love for her family.”

“She fought to get well – like a mother bear guarding her young,” Doyle remembers. “Her Faith and values and spirit were living examples of the Mission of the Seton Hall School of Nursing and what Pope Francis has focused on in his encyclical Gaudete et Exsultate.”

“Minette was a holy woman filled with grace on this earth.  And now – I truly believe – she is an Angel,” she concludes.

Join #HipNJ as we help continue to mission of Minette’s Angels, which is to support breast cancer patients and survivors. Honorees of the “Celebrations of Angels” gala include Dr. Michael Scoppetuolo, chief medical officer of The Cancer Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and his wife, Rosemary Scoppetuolo; the Reverend Michael A. Hanly, Parish Priest at St. Bartholomew’s in Scotch Plains; and Michael Vallone with Myriad Genetic Laboratories.
