Carol A. Gallaher, 73, of Berwinsdale, passed away on Sept. 26, 2022 after a lengthy illness. She was welcomed into heaven by her Lord and savior and her dear husband, Howard B. Gallaher, who passed away on April 10, 2006.

Carol spent much of her life serving others and the Lord. She served in many of the churches in the community, whether it be providing goods for bake sales, helping to make candy, helping with other sales, cleaning and praying, whatever was needed or asked of her - she served in any way she could. During her last weeks of life, even in her own time of need, Carol spent countless hours praying for other people, many by name, for any need she felt the Lord put in her heart. She was a true warrior for the Lord.
Carol attended Rock of Freedom Fellowship in Coalport, pastored by Bob Queen.
Carol wore many hats over the years. She worked to take care of so many in their homes, providing for personal care needs and home cleaning services. She once worked in a sewing factory, drove school van for Cambergs and drove the Amish from time to time. She enjoyed spending time with her family and seeing all the exciting new things happening in the lives of her grandchildren, who now are mostly of adult age. She also enjoyed spoiling her dog, Sadie. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, friend and dog mom.
