It is with great sadness that the family of Myrle Gallops announces her passing on Easter Sunday April 4, 2021, at the age of 88 at her home in Tampa, Florida. She was born in Chipley, Florida on February 11, 1933.

She married the love of her life Dewey Gallops on November 7, 1951. They had a long life together of almost 60 years, full of many adventures especially relating to aviation. She was a wonderful person, loved by all and will be truly missed. She was a lover of all animals, and they rescued many different ones. I know she is happy to be reunited with Dewey and all of them now. Ecclesiastes 1:7

She is preceded in death by her husband Dewey Gallops, and survived by her son, Mike Gallops of Tampa, Florida, her daughter Karen Bridgham and her husband Jerry of Jacksonville, Florida, and her son Keith Gallops and his wife Kimmie of Cudjoe Key, Florida. She also has four grandchildren, Amy Lawlor and her husband Adam, A. J. Bridgham, Callie Bridgham, and Sam Bridgham and his wife Rachel. She also has five great-grandchildren

She will be interned at Bushnell National Cemetery with her husband Dewey Gallops

If you would like to contribute to a charity on her behalf, please donate to Suncoast Animal League of Palm Harbor Florida.

You will be missed by everyone you touched. You were a part of my life from high school on. You were like a second mother to me. I’m glad you will now be reunited with Dewey. RIP
