Eileen Ellen McNally Obituary
January 10, 1934 - June 22, 2015 Eileen Ellen McNally was born and raised in Hornchurch, Essex, England. She died on June 22, 2015 in the company of her loving family at Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego. She is survived by Derek McNally, her devoted husband of 58 years, sons: John McNally and wife Thelma, (Switzerland), Stephen McNally and wife Leanne (San Diego); grandchildren Brandon, Sydney, Daniel, Jack and Christian. She was predeceased by her daughter Annette McNally Bruce. Eileen is also survived by her brothers Ed and John Condon (England), sisters Bernadette Deverson (Sydney, Australia) and Terry Rawlins (Cyprus). Eileen and Derek immigrated with their young family to Erie, PA in December 1966. In 1970 they went to Canada and lived there for two years. They returned to the US in 1972, settling in Valencia, CA and living there until 2014 when they relocated to San Diego, CA. Eileen was a parishioner of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Valencia and of St. Agnes Church in Point Loma where, on Friday June 26, a memorial mass was celebrated by Fr Edward McNulty. (Sons John and Stephen did the readings during the mass, grandson Christian was the alter server and husband Derek gave the eulogy.) Eileen was a wonderful wife and best friend to Derek and loving mother to John, Annette and Stephen. She was an exceptional cook and her bridge skills were renowned in Valencia. She took up making china dolls and won a prize at the Orange County Fair. Her humor was excellent, but she had difficulty telling some of her jokes because she could not stop laughing as she told them. Eileen was an amazing and loving grandmother. Her altruism and compassion were always felt by her grandchildren as they witnessed her devotion to her family and friends. The memory of her delicious and mouth-watering desserts, her funny sense of humor, her sometimes cheeky behavior, particularly towards her children, will always hold a special place in their hearts and will bring a smile to their faces. Eileen will be sadly missed by family and friends.
