Dorothy Gilroy

Dorothy (Eldridge), Gilroy

Dorothy (Eldridge), Gilroy, age 82 – a 12 year resident of Redmond; died October 25, 2012 in the Critical Care Unit of a Seattle hospital after apparently successful aortic valve replacement surgery. She was an Iowa farm girl, the valedictorian of her high school class; an elementary school teacher, and a wife and mother. She was also a medical librarian who managed three small special libraries affiliated with the University of Cincinnati. She was the “local mother” to two daughters in law (one from India, one from Argentina). She was the grandmother of three granddaughters and one grandson. She volunteered in the libraries of their elementary schools, and in the Friends of the Redmond Library. She left three brothers, two sisters, a husband of 60 years, two sons, two daughters in law, and four grandkids – to cope with her unexpected death. Two memorial services are being planned. One at Emerald Heights on November 17th; the other at St. Jude Church on November 18th.
