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.
All our love to Bridget, Eileen, Maureen and the rest of the Dowling clan. We love you.

Words cannot express how empty I feel inside. I miss you so much already my heart hurts. I cannot imagine life without you. I know you are in heaven, reunited with your parents, brothers, and friends, and looking down on me and our family. You made an everlasting impact on so many lives. I hope to be half the person you are. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for me, Lee and mom, and for loving me unconditionally. You are and will always be my best friend and most favorite person. I love you to the moon and back mama. I cannot wait until we are reunited one day. Until then, rest in the sweetest peace my beautiful, loving, guardian angel.
Thinking of you Bridget, Eileen, Maureen, Papa, and all of Mama’s many family members!
Love, Kathleen Glatthaar & Joseph Lozano
May you rest in the sweetest peace & watch down upon us.
