Peacefully, surrounded by my loved ones, God called me home to be with my parents, William and Mary Gallagher, sister, Darlene Fisher, and my in-laws, Dolores and Cecil Landon.
I leave behind my loving husband, Gerry, who shared an amazing 50 years with me. I also leave behind my children, Jeremy (Danielle), Cori (David), and Cyndi. My grandchildren, Katelynn, Michael, and Abbigail. I also will be looking upon my sister, Ann Phair (William) and little brother, William Gallagher (Marianne). I am well loved by all of my nieces and nephews and they all hold a special place in my heart.
I made a great deal of special friends who I know will continue my legacy of generosity, grace and love; most especially my unbiological sister, Shirley Horvath and her husband, Victor; and my lifelong friend, Judy Gagne and her husband, Yvan.
I sincerely thank the palliative and oncology teams at Bluewater Health, in particular my quarterback, Dr. Crombeen. Also, the care and love provided to me and my family by St. Joseph's Hospice staff and volunteers are appreciated beyond measure.
In lieu of flowers, I appreciate any sympathy paid in donations to the Inn of the Good Shepherd, River City Vineyard, or St. Josephs Hospice. Cremation has taken place so I can rest in my favourite vacation spot. Celebration of life will be held at a later date, where I hope love and laughter are shared among my friends.
