Add a Memory to the
Earth has no sorrow,that heaven can not heal.
What I will remember most about Mrs. Gilroy was how much she loved her children and grandchildren, as evidenced by the memorable joy of many crowded family gatherings in her 10th floor condo at the Bonneville in Euclid. She loved eggs, bacon and sausage, and several of her grandchildren particularly enjoyed Nanna’s breakfasts, as it was often their only opportunity to eat bacon, otherwise banned from their vegetarian diet at the time. All of the Combs’ grandchildren enjoyed spending the weekend at Nanna’s condo. Mrs. Gilroy came of age in the Great Depression and during World War II, when she worked in a war production factory, and, like the many members of her generation that have graced my life, she was indelibly formed by those two great human calamities. And, of course, I always will remember how very much she loved fresh tomatoes, and how much I loved her baked goods. She is missed.
