Obituary of Paula Heroy

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of Paula Heroy (Kirrane) on May 12th, 2024 in her own home on Hilton Head Island, SC after a brief battle with cancer. She was 58.

Paula was born on November 16th, 1965 to Mary and Michael Kirrane in Williamstown, Co Galway, Ireland. She moved to Australia soon after high school, fostering her love for travel. She made her way to New York City where she met the love of her life, Peter Heroy. They married on October 3rd, 1992. The Heroy’s moved to Hilton Head Island in 1996 where they raised their son and daughter, Jack and Grace. Paula was a wonderful, loving mother, who always put her children before herself.

Paula loved to cook for her family and friends, and all were welcome in her kitchen. She was at peace on the beach, reading an interesting book. She also loved a good movie with a glass of wine. She will be remembered as a very warm, caring person, who always had a smile on her face.

Paula is survived by her son Jack Heroy, and daughter Grace Heroy of Hilton Head, SC; her siblings Micheal, Maura, Joan, Ann, Madeline, Liam, Carmel, Sean, Eamon, Bernadette, Shelly, and their respective spouses, cousins, and all of the good friends she made over the years. She is preceded in death by her husband, Peter Heroy; and her parents, Mary and Michael Kirrane.
