Obituary for Emilie E Gallagher

Emilie (nee Elston) on May 25, 2020, age 97 years of Moorestown and formerly Haddon Heights, NJ, beloved wife of the late Thomas A. Gallagher, Jr. and her first husband, Walter H. Mathias. Survived by her three children: Bruce Mathias, Joan Miller, both of Tigard, OR and Ruth and her husband, Mark Weller of Palmyra, NJ. Also survived by her grandchildren: Donald Miller, Sarah Miller, David Weller and Thomas Weller and three great grandchildren, Erin Li, Calvin and Nicholas.

Born in Philadelphia (Germantown), PA, Emilie worked at Asher's Chocolate, Co. after school with her beloved father, head candy maker, Albert Elston. During World War II she worked at Bendix Aviation in Philadelphia.

She returned to work at U.S. Vision in Glendora, NJ as a computer operator for 25 years after raising her three children. Her impressive work ethic set an example for future generations of family. A lovely surprise was reuniting with her first love, Thomas Gallagher at age 70, marrying, and spending 12 wonderful years with him in Cape May and Haddon Heights. She retired at the age of 89, then moved to Moorestown Estates assisted living.
In her later years she looked forward to her phone conversations with her son, Bruce and many happy times with her daughters, Joan and Ruth, playing cards and doing jigsaw puzzles. Emilie passed on the tradition of spending time at the Jersey Shore, along with her love of gardening. She loved her family deeply and cherished celebrating important family moments.

Graveside services will be held privately at Ivy Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA. Arr. by EVOY-BANASZ FUNERAL HOME, Haddon Heights, NJ.
