Rita Lily-Anne Gallagher, 82, of Polson, MT, passed away of natural causes, February 11, 2017.  Her Catholic faith was important to her and she gained a lot of strength from it.  Never giving up and doing her best with what she knew and had was a guiding principle for her.  She enjoyed sewing, gardening, and reading.  Photography, history of the pioneers, and children were her passions.  Her quick wit and humor will be missed.

Her husband and son preceded her into the after-life.  She leaves behind six daughters and four sons, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, as well as many other extended family members.

Funeral Mass will be held at the Sacred Heart Parish in Ronan, Montana at 11:00 am, on February 21.  Burial will take place at the Calvary Cemetery in Ronan with a reception following.

My deepest condolences to the family. I am so sorry for the pain you have to endure. May the words found at Psalm 46:1 and Revelation 21:4 provide you comfort and strengthen you at this difficult time and in the days ahead.
Again my deepest sympathy

For the Runkle family, the Gallagher family spanned a few generations. My parents knew the older ones and my siblings and I the younger ones. You just lost Dan and now your mom. My heart goes out to you.

Please accept my prayers and condolences for your loss

I went to WOU with BARBARA and here she's teaching and doing well.
