Obituary of Bridget Dowling

Bridget “Bridie” Theresa Dowling, nee O’Malley, was born in County Galway, Ireland, on May 22, 1933. She peacefully returned to the Lord on September 6, 2021 at home, while surrounded by her close family and beloved husband of over 57 years, Jimmy.

Bridie enjoyed spending time with her children and could always be found cheering on her grandchildren at their sporting events.

She almost never missed a daily mass and could be seen dancing around the kitchen with her husband to Irish music. She spent many weekends at Gaelic park watching football and hurling.

She is the loving mother to Patrick (Gina), James (Geri), Maureen, and Gerry (Noreen). Bridie leaves behind her seven grandchildren who she loved dearly: Bridget, Eileen (Dylan), Katy (Billy), Aidan, Trevor, Ciaran and Kathleen. Bridie is preceded by her brothers Patrick (Rosemary), Coleman (Joyce), Barney and Martin. She is survived by her sisters Mary (Jack) and Anne (John) and many nieces and nephews.

Bridie brought love and joy to so many lives. She will be truly missed.

Visitation will be held at Hodder’s Funeral Home on Thursday, September 9, 2021 from 2-4pm and 6-9pm. A mass of Christian burial will be held on Friday, September 10, 2021 at 9:30am at St. Barnabas Church in the Bronx. Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, NY.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider making a donation in her name to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation at alzinfo.org/memory-wall
