Jean Marie Gallagher, “Jeanne”, passed away at age 58 on March 2, 2022 after a prolonged illness. Born on January 18, 1964 and raised in Flushing, NY, Jean attended St. Andrew Avellino elementary school and The Mary Louis Academy before graduating from Pace University with a Bachelors degree in Business. She and her family have been lifelong residents of Flushing, Bayside, Roslyn and Manhasset.
Jean spent many years working as a Bookkeeper for several parishes within The Diocese of Rockville Centre and for the Congregational Church of Manhasset. Jean worked tirelessly to share her Catholic education experience with her two most beloved sons, Brendan and Brian, both of whom are alumni of St. Mary’s Elementary and High Schools and completed degrees at St. Joseph’s University and Loyola University Maryland.
In addition to Brendan and Brian, Jean is survived by her six siblings – Joe, Mary, Cathleen, Ellen, Tom (Buddy), and Anne. She also leaves behind several adoring Brothers and Sisters in Law on both the Moynihan and Gallagher sides of the family. Too many loving Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, Friends and Co-Workers to list by name – all of whom cherished our time with Jean and will miss her terribly. We take comfort in knowing that her Mom and Dad, Winnie and Bob Moynihan, welcomed her into Heaven with a long and loving embrace.
In lieu of flowers, we have established a scholarship in our mothers name at St Mary’s High School. Should you wish to contribute, that will be greatly appreciated by our family. Please follow the directions in the link below.
