Erin Arlene Downey

It is with great sadness that Erin's mother, Ros, brother, Blair, close friends and extended family announce her passing. Waiting for her with open arms are her father, Gary; Nanny and Poppy Nash; Nanny Bridie and Nanny Kathleen. Leaving to cherish her memory and spirit are her mom, Ros, and brother, Blair (Maja); her precious daughter, Arianna; niece, Makena; nephew, Jude; her dog, Gingi; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, as well as a circle of people lucky to have known her and loved her. Erin was full of laughter, love and gratitude, and took every opportunity to share that with those around her. For that, she was an example of never tempering enthusiasm or hesitating to express love or thanks. She was a selfless and courageous caregiver to her father, loving mother to Arianna, and doting aunt to Makena and Jude. Erin was humble and kind. Spirited yet gentle. She was generous and spared no effort in showing you that you mattered to her. She was fun loving and fun to be around. Her memory evokes the brightest of smiles. Erin was feisty and had an incredible heart. She will never be forgotten by those who love her. Visitation will take place Wednesday, January 23rd 1-9 pm at Barrett's Funeral Home, 73 Commonwealth Ave., with Mass and a celebration of her life Thursday, January 24th at 1:30 pm at Mary Queen of the World Parish, 775 Topsail Rd.
