Aunt Esther Gilliam, 1923 - 2021
“Peace begins with a smile” Mother Teresa
It was a very small but beautiful service, orchestrated largely by mostly Healys. To my surprise, nobody was very familiar with the Currans. Genevieve Healy Petrik seamed to be the main organizer of the service. I assume that Genevieve was named after another favorite relative of dad’s, Genevieve. But that Genevieve is over on the Curran side.
The whole process of trying to keep up with our distant relatives is a little bit daunting.
Genevieve was very sweet to me, She remembers seeing dad, David, Andrew and Uncle John at the Lake Ave. house. I guess Grammy (Bertha), Aunt Beatie and Aunt Esther would do a lot of cooking for the four boys. As you know, Dad was very young when his dad died. Uncle David, the youngest, was just a teenager.
I highly suggest you watch at least part of the service, 45 minute mark on, Genavieve had a great eulogy / words of remembrance. She mentions the Morgans, Muths, Wagners and others, particularly her touching mention of her Brother Jim’s care for Aunt Esther near the end.
Complete service, I am on the far right in the church.... https://boxcast.tv/view/esther-gillam-wlkslijs2dadelplmgk8

Passed away peacefully October 6, 2021. Esther was born in Cleveland and was a resident of Rocky River for over 60 years.
