Doyle Funeral Home continues line of female directors
Moriah Doyle Britt, granddaughter of the founders of the Gregory F. Doyle Funeral Home, has joined the family in serving the Milford community.
Moriah assumed her role in the family business after the sudden death of her mother, Colleen Doyle Britt.
“Moriah is maintaining the high level of care and service that the Gregory F. Doyle Funeral Home has exhibited in Milford for over 55 years,” the family said in a prepared press release.
A graduate of Lauralton Hall Academy, Moriah earned her bachelor’s degree in economics from Lehigh University. She was an associate with Huron Consulting Group before entering the American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service.
A fully licensed funeral director and embalmer, Moriah graduated cum laude from the McAllister Institute and received the Wolfe Award for excellence in clinical embalming.
Moriah said she wanted to continue in the family business because she grew up watching her mother and grandparents comfort families in their community.
“I grew up around our funeral home all my life and was always so amazed with the impact my grandparents and my mother had on the families,” she said.
“As I grew older, I saw myself in the same role as my mother, helping people and making a positive difference in this very difficult period of someone’s life,” she added. “Every day I strive to make my grandparents and mother proud as I carry on our family tradition.”
Moriah is no stranger to community service. While going to school at McAllister, she was a frequent volunteer with the YAI Network, an organization known for creating opportunities for children with developmental and learning disabilities.
As a member of Part of the Solution, she helped provide an array of services to the less fortunate in the Bronx.
Recently married, she is a parishioner of St. Ann’s Church.
The Gregory F. Doyle Funeral Home is located in the Devon section of Milford and is owned and operated by the family. For information go to gregoryfdoylefuneralhome.com.
