Dorothy Gallagher Obituary

Dorothy Ann Gallagher, 88, a lifetime resident of Charleroi, Pennsylvania died November 30th, 2023 following complications of a long term illness. Her family was by her side as she went to be with the Lord.


Dorothy was born on April 29, 1935, the daughter of late parents Clarence and Mildred Younkin. Dorothy was the last surviving member of her family and was preceded in death by her husband Richard, sisters Irene Cooper (Vernon), Doris Kusaj (Bruce), and brother Clarence “Butch” Younkin.


Dorothy is survived by her daughter Shauna Soom (Uniontown, Pa.), granddaughters Kelsey (Pittsburgh, Pa.) and Olivia (Arlington, Va.), brother-in-law Vin Gallagher (Sun City West, Az.), and several nieces and nephews.


Dorothy had a long standing career in the accounting department at various automotive dealerships. She spent many evenings with her favorite groups of friends playing cards, enjoying dinners and keeping up with one another as a member of several Card Clubs. She belonged to the Mon Valley Quilt Club and was a dedicated volunteer for the Mon Valley Hospital Auxiliary. She was also a parishioner of Saint Andrew the Apostle Parish.


Dorothy often enjoyed traveling with family and taking cruises to tropical locations. Her greatest joy was spending time with her granddaughters and watching all of their achievements.
