Obituary

Obituary for TC Gallagher

Gallagher, Terese C.

Terese Catherine (TC) Gallagher of White Plains, NY passed away on August 20, 2020 after a courageous battle with lung cancer.

TC was born in Queens, NY on July 5, 1940, to Gabrielle and James Helion. Her father’s job in sales brought the family to many locations throughout her childhood, including Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, and Long Island, before finally settling in Yorktown Heights, NY, where she graduated from Yorktown High School in 1958.

TC graduated from St. Anne’s Hospital School of Nursing in Fall River, MA in 1961 and began her fifty-one year career as a Registered Nurse. Her first position was as an operating room nurse at White Plains Hospital. She eventually transitioned to the Westchester Artificial Kidney Center in 1975 where she remained until her retirement in 2012. During her tenure at WAKC she was not only known by her patients and colleagues as a skilled caregiver but also as a person of compassion who rendered care with respect and dignity for each individual.

TC married her beloved husband, Daniel F. Gallagher, in October 1963, and they were married for forty-eight years until his death in January 2012. She is survived by their children, Susanne and her partner, Tim McAuliffe, Michael and his wife, Shannon, and Jim and his wife, Debbie. She was the proud and loving grandmother of Flannery, Michael, and Gabrielle.

TC is also survived by her sisters and brothers: Mary Jane Pugliese, John Helion, Laura Zick, Ann Leary, James Helion and Peter Helion.

In addition to her husband, TC was predeceased, in 1996, by her grandson, Daniel, for whom she had great love and compassion.

TC was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and a true friend to many. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Visiting hours will be at McMahon, Lyon & Hartnett Funeral Home in White Plains on August 26, 2020 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in White Plains at 10:00 a.m. on August 27, 2020. Due to COVID-19 restrictions internment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in TC’s name to Elizabeth Seton Children’s Hospital, 300 Corporate Blvd S., Yonkers, NY 10701.

TC, you will always have a special place in my heart. You (and Suzanne) were with us when we had to say good-bye to Mom (Mary O'Shea Sheehy). We are forever grateful to you for being such a genuine friend. Between you, Mary, Jack and Dan what stories there are, wish we knew half of them! May God hold you in the palm of his hands and may you all rest in peace together in eternal friendship. We all love you and will miss you with heavy hearts forever. Joanne Sheehy Peck.

T.C. & I were in nursing school together@ St. Anne’s School of Nursing in Fall River, Ma. We had some great times & made some wonderful memories.My family all loved her like she was a second “daughter”! She came to visit me several times in recent years so we could reminisce & catch up on all our latest news with family etc. She will always have a special place in my heart. Sincerely, Diane Cote Sunderland
