Our mother among the saints, Gorgonia the Righteous, is known primarily through her eulogy given by her brother, St. Gregory the Theologian. She was the youngest daughter of St. Gregory the Elder and St. Nonna, and was known for her piety. She was married to Alypius and had five children. St. Gorgonia fell asleep in the Lord on February 23, 375, at age 38.
