Battling Cancer with Courage - In loving memory of Margot Gallagher, who left us on 11/11/2010

Margot Gallagher had been fighting several forms of cancer for the past year. On November 11th, 2010 she lost her fight at the age 46. On October 24th, a small group of friends had a farewell party for her at an art gallery (above) in Miami before she moved up North to be with her family. She always maintained a smile and sense of grace throughout her tribulations and rigorous sessions of chemotherapy. Her positive attitude has truly been an inspiration to me and many others. We love you Margot...you found a way to match calamity with serenity....God be with you.

The following is her obituary: 

Margot Joan Gallagher, 46, of Miami Beach, FL and North Haven, CT died peacefully on November 11, 2010 after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. She is survived by her parents Thomas and Lynn Gallagher, her brother Leo Gallagher, sister Wendy (Paul) Saracco, brother Ted (Linda) Gallagher. Also by her nieces and nephews, Ryan & Jared Gallagher and Maria, Meghan, Sofia, & Ava Saracco. She was known affectionately to her family as "Auntie Go-Go". She was a warm and loving person who helped and inspired many people over the years. She will be missed greatly.
