Pamela A. Gallagher


Pamela A. Gallagher, 78, of North Bay, NY, passed away September 28, 2021, at home right where she wanted to be along with her loving husband by her side. Pam was born October 6, 1942, in Syracuse, NY, a daughter of Charles and Helen Caraher Moore. Pam was educated at Camden Central School and in her early years was a licensed cosmetologist. On April 25, 1964, she married Patrick A. Gallagher at St. Anthony’s Church, Syracuse, NY.

In her younger years, she was an avid bowler, and truly enjoyed bowling with Pat and their friends to where they took many yearly trips for bowling tournaments. Pam truly loved watching her husband play softball; there were not many games that he played without her being on the sidelines cheering him on. In the winter months after retirement, they lived in Mission, TX, at the Benson Grove Retirement Community. The stories that Pam and Pat can tell of their travels back and forth to Texas over the years are endless. However, her heart was truly to North Bay and loved to visit and reminisce with folks about growing up on the North side of Oneida Lake.

Her survivors include her loving husband Patrick, of North Bay; three children, Sean (Chrissy) Gallagher, Blossvale, Hugh Gallagher, Camden and Kathleen (Walter) Buhler, Jr, Ava, NY; her cherished grandchildren, Elizabeth (John) Wilt, Patrick (JJ) Gallagher, Megan and Connor Gallagher, Cheyanne (Corey) Houseman and Cody Buhler; along with 13 great-grandchildren; a brother, James (Alicia) Moore, Del Rio, TX; and a brother-in-law, Richard Szczerba, Marcy, NY; and several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by a great-grandson, Eoghan Wilt, and two sisters, Charlene (Harold) Newton and Sylvia Szczerba.

Services will be private. Interment will be in St. John’s Cemetery, North Bay, NY. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of LaRobardiere Funeral home, Inc., Camden, NY.
