Patricia H. Gallagher

She was born Dec. 28, 1921, in Bellingham, to Carl and Frances Hadley. Both parents passed away early in her life; she was adopted into the loving family of Eric and Margrethe Lindquist, of Mount Vernon.

Patricia married John M. Gallagher on March 3, 1945, while he was still in the Army Air Force. They moved from Renton to their home in Issaquah in 1962, and lived there until John’s passing in 2005. She loved her grandchildren and cherished her time with them.

Patricia worked many years as a sales person at Boehm’s Candy Store and Danielson’s Jewelers. She enjoyed sewing, music and reading good books. Many of her neighbors and friends came to her for clothing alterations.

Patricia is survived by daughters Carol Gallagher, of Stanwood, Peggy Thomsen (Hans), of Pottstown, Pa., and Linda Keylon (George), of Seattle; son Carl Gallagher, of Issaquah; granddaughters Patty Gallagher, of Bremerton, Ardra Farally, of Philadelphia, and Rachel Keylon, of Washington, D.C.; grandson Joel Keylon, of Portland, Ore.; and great-granddaughter Annabell Farally, of Philadelphia.

Our family would like to extend our thanks to the staff at Cedar Creek for the care and compassion they showed our mother in her final days. They were a great comfort.

A celebration of life will be held at the Tahoma National Cemetery at a date to be established by the family. Guestbook online at

    I used to do Pat’s hair in the early 70’s and enjoyed her so much. Once and a while she would bring me broken pieces of Boehm’s candy. I was honored that she was a part of my wedding in 1972. I have a picture in our album of her serving the wedding cake. She was a beautiful and giving person. I’m sure she was welcomed into Heaven with open arms.
    May the love and memories you hold in your hearts always bring you a smile and comfort you.
