I'm not sure I understand all of what you want, but the message I think
you are referring to has subject "You have been unsubscribed from the
<listname> mailing list" (in the member's language). This is hard
coded and cannot be changed without changing the code.

The body of the message contains the text from the list's goodbye_msg
attribute (on the General Options page). This text is filled and
wrapped. You can force a paragraph break by inserting an empty line,
and you can prevent filling of a line by beginning the line with white

There is no way to insert the members name or address or any other
variable info without changing code.
