Timmy (The Mayor) Tierney remembers his mother-in-law: “Hey, Mighty, Eileen Clarke, my mother-in-law, recently passed. This Brooklyn gal married Bill Clarke and took their adventure to Rosedale where they nurtured six children. Upon Bill’s passing years ago, she didn’t stop.
“Her invaluable wisdom was given to the kids when time came to raise their own. Eileen was a joyous soul, smiling and upbeat, especially when grandkids were young and flooded the house. Seemed every time she opened a closet door another popped out. Total: 11.
“Devotion to her faith, family and friends never wavered. Was mainstay volunteer with daughter Joanne at local parish. Doesn’t get better than that. From the family, heartfelt thanks for the sympathy and prayers. Sad occasion, sure, but seeing everyone, it was more a celebration of the wonderful life of an amazing lady.”
Mighty was waiting on the Blue Jays on Tuesday and likes the Giants on Wednesday. The deficit is 1375 sirignanos.
