Obituary for Eileen Gallagher (McCarey)

Eileen McCarey Gallagher, 86, passed away peacefully surrounded by all of her children. Eileen was born and raised in Jersey City and resided in Wall, NJ before settling in Howell, NJ. Eileen attended St. Michael’s High School and worked for Western Electric prior to retiring to raise her six children.

In her later years she was a member of the Women of Irish Heritage Club where she celebrated her Irish roots. Her best days were spent with friends and family, good food, and a glass of Pinot (one ice cube).

She is survived by her children Thomas and Diana Gallagher, Michael and Julia Gallagher, Karen Gallagher, John and Mark Kourey, James and Darlene Gallagher, and Patti and Sean Saganey, her sisters Mary Fischer and Bernadette Russo, brother-in-law Kevin and Margaret Gallagher, grandchildren Lauren, Dylan, Michael, Colleen and Tony Cramond, Haley and Kevin Brady, McCarey, James, Jaclyn, Liam, Richard, Eileen, and many grandpups.
