THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL
Give Mary Yolanda Dowling an instrument - an accordion, a piano or a set of bagpipes - and she is likely to produce a foot-stomping tune. She may have spent her days as an administrator for Aon Corporation, on the 92nd floor of 2 World Trade Center, but Ms. Dowling's mind was often on her music.
The oldest of four children and deeply immersed in the Celtic culture she inherited from her father, Ms. Dowling, 46, spent much of her free time singing with a choir near her home in Floral Park, N.Y. Rosaleen Shea, her sister, said she received a standing ovation several years ago after singing the national anthem at a Mets game. “She had a voice like an angel and she shared it with everyone, in good times or bad,” Ms. Shea said. “Our entire family is immersed in music, but Yolanda is the most gifted.”

DOWLING-Mary Yolanda, 46. Of Rosedale, NY, died heroically and tragically on September 11, 2001, working for AON at the World Trade Center. Beloved daughter of Christy Dowling and the late Mary C. Dowling (nee Dolan). Cherished sister of Christopher, Andrew & Rosaleen Shea. Sister-in-law of Judy Dowling and Bob Shea. Adored aunt of Kristina, Devin, Christopher, Robert and Mary Kate. She will be missed by many relatives and friends in the United States and Tullamore, Ireland. Your glorious voice is now heard in Heaven’s choir of angels.

Yolanda Dowling was excited to get a job more local to her home on Long Island. She went into the World Trade Center that morning for what should have been her last day on the job. It was her last day on the planet.

From Queens, NY, Yolanda received her formal music training from Westminster Choir College and is best known for her renditions of Irish songs due to the influence of her Co. Offaly-born father, Chris, also a fine musician. First prize winner of Irish song competitions, Yolanda has performed at Carnegie Recital Hall, on radio, and frequently entertains for local Irish community events.”

I knew the moment I lost my sister as I watched the second airplane hit 2 WTC - I waited and waited throught that silent night when no phone call came - we all thought we heard her footsteps walking up our driveway through the night - every rustle of the leaves, every sigh in the air - but only silence. Relief that my brother Andrew who eyewitnessed the attack on the ground below and went to his building to help evacuate his staff and friends that very same morning, survived the evacuation of a nearby building. I along with my husband, Bob, brothers, Andrew and Chris, my Dad and countless relatives and friends searched for Yolanda in every way we could. The pain of losing her was so unbelievable to face on September 12th - to tell our young children who witnessed it on television and had to be told the truth. The thing that has lingered with me most is the loss of the quality of the people who died that day - they were all loving, hard working and citizens of our great and free nation. Freedom is not free. In particular regarding my sister, the loss of her tremendous singing talent has hit me the hardest of all my memories of her. Her voice was unusual - she trained as a mezzo-soprano but could sing soprano, alto - you name it - she was comfortable in any octave or key. Yolanda had such a repertoire, classical, religious and of course, Celtic/Irish.

My Dad, Christy Dowling from Tullamore, Offaly, Ireland now in Rosedale, NY, a musician himself (bagpipes)raised us as babies on the music of John McCormack, Mary O’Hara etc. While other kids were listening to the Beatles (we sneaked it of course) - we listened to Macuschla, My Dark Rosaleen, Dear Little Town in the Olde County Down, Ireland Mother Ireland, Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms, The Spinning Wheel, My Lagan Love - shall I go on? Yolanda spoke gaelic, step-danced, ceili-danced, and embraced our Irish heritage with class and dignity always. She made us younger siblings enthusiatic about it too. Yolanda was so proud of her Irish heritage and family in Tullamore. She especially loved our Granny Dowling (nee Annie Cummins)whom she lived with on summer vacation as a young girl. Yolanda was my personal connection to my Irish heritage, second to Dad, and was going to teach my children how to sing and play the piano in a few years. We were so exited about that. Yolanda and I had the opportunity to attend three concerts together this year, evenings I will cherish always: they were Irish Tenors: Anthony Kearns, Patchogue, March 24th, John McDermott, Lehman Center, June 2nd and The Irish Tenors, radi City, June 21st (my birthday). We had plans to see them all again. In one morning, our dreams and plans came crashing down. In my sister's memory, I plan to go on with our dreams and plans without her because I and my children will embrace our Irish heritage which I love so well. Yolanda's talent will never be matched - people like Yolanda are rare and it took her death to see it so clearly. Of course, she being my sister, I took her for granted thinking she’d always be there for me. I take nothing for granted anyomore. I am blessed because I have video tapes and audio tapes of her performances through the years - Dad is listening to them and carefully perserving them as I write this. The Irish community lost a great American/Irish patriot on September 11 but we have Yolanda's legacy of music that will live on for future generations. God Bless You “Yo” - Pray For Us. - ove, your sister, Rosaleen Shea

Entry by Bobby Whelan 2mo
I knew Yolanda from when she was about 5 years old (I used to make her & her brother Chris laugh all the time when I walked past.....their laughs were infectious) until about 1984 when I moved out east from 243rd. Street.......We were close neighbors many of those years, & she babysat my children a couple of times in the early 80's.....Her dad Chris & I spoke often....loved listening when he played his glorious pipes....we belonged to the same Parish too. Where can I get Yolanda's Memorial CD I see above, so I can contribute to Yolanda's 9/11 Memorial Scholarship Fund, & enjoy her music & singing? Thanks......
