Kerry Ann Coyle, age 67, passed away early in the morning of September 8, 2021 at the Leesburg Regional Hospital, in Leesburg Fl.
She was born on April 11,1954, in Chicago, Illinois to Anita Anne nee Yanutin and Lloyd Darling. Kerry grew up in Chicago right off Lincoln Park, graduated from High School and entered college at 16 years of age and earned double BS at Roosevelt University by the time she was 19. She’d go on to earn a MS later at UNT in Denton TX. She spent over 25 years working for American Airlines and later spin off Sabre Travel Services initially in sales and ticketing. She then transitioned into planning and installation roles for both many airline and travel industry, IT systems necessitating many interesting domestic and international trips around the world. She later began a second career teaching on somewhat of a lark while waiting for her husband to finally retire in the Texas School system in Keller Texas.
She and her husband relocated to The Villages in 2014. While she loved the lifestyle and meeting new friends, she and her husband also relished being homebodies after spending so many years shuttling travel duties between them while raising a family at the same time. She was an avid crossword, sudoku and other puzzle solver and was unafraid to do them in pen. She thoroughly enjoyed mysteries and who done-it investigations, she always seeming to have the plot figured out before anyone else.
Quite the host, she was known for providing an unending supply of snacks fancy or otherwise either for quests or for her husband and sons during their football games. She and her husband recently relocated outside of The Villages to a larger home due to their reunification with their sons.
Kerry was preceded in death by her two brothers, Glen Darling and Russel Darling. She is survived by her husband of 44 years Michael Coyle and sons, Michael, Robert and Loya Darling.
