Obituary of Anne Mary Gallagher
Anne Mary Gallagher, age 79, of Raleigh, North Carolina passed away on Wednesday, September 21, 2022. Anne was born February 21, 1943. Born February 21, 1943, in Pittsburgh, PA, to the late Anna (Cvitkovic) and Joseph Skrtich, Anne graduated from Peabody High School as a member of the National Honor Society. She married Eugene Owen Gallagher, Jr. in 1966, and for 56 years were affectionately each other’s ‘Morticia’ and ‘Gomez’. Their life together included 2 daughters, Wendy and Terri, 6 relocations to Ohio, Missouri, Oklahoma, and North Carolina and one grandson, Logan, Anne’s favorite photography subject. For more than 20 years, Anne was a valued staff member at the Wake County Public School System, supporting several departments over the years. A strong work ethic and job well-done were important to her and by example, instilled these values in her girls. But caring for her family, which she did tirelessly, was Anne’s hallmark. Anne found joy in watching hummingbirds at the feeder just outside the kitchen window, needlepoint projects that earned her several ribbons over the years at the NC State Fair, Christmas-everything and travelling. Favorite destinations of Morticia and Gomez were the Hawaiian Islands, Sedona, the Galapagos Islands, Australia, the Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Alaska, Sanibel Island and National Parks across the country. Anne is survived by her husband Gene, daughters Wendy Webster and Terri Talton (husband Chris), grandson US Army 2LT. Jonathan Logan Shough, beloved cousin Sylvia Easler of Glenshaw, PA, and life-long best friend Jan Bardzik (husband Ed) of West Chester, PA. Her family would like to thank the cardiac and ICU medical teams, support staff and volunteers at Wake Med in Raleigh for their unwavering professionalism, kindness, and support provided to the entire family while Anne was a patient. A funeral mass will be held at St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church at 1:00pm on Friday, November 4. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Anne’s favorite charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Gallagher family. *** Funeral Service has been indefinitely postponed. Updated services will be posted at a later date ***
