Hampstead, NH - Elizabeth Ann Gallagher, 77, of Hampstead, N.H., passed away at her residence after a period of declining health. She was born July 7, 1941, in Everett, Mass., a daughter of the late John and Sarah (Keating) Homer. She was a long-time resident of Lawrence, Mass., until retiring to Hampstead, N.H., in 2000.
Elizabeth was employed for many years for the Town of North Andover and the Town of Chelmsford, Mass., where she retired from her professional life to care for the grandchildren. She enjoyed travel and beach life, listening to the waves crash on Myrtle Beach, or any beach for that matter. She also loved planning these trips and capturing the memories into her amazing photo scrapbooks. She loved music, reading, crafts and knitting. Doing puzzles and playing scrabble and other games with her husband and the kids Elizabeth dedicated her life to her family and friends, she was selfless and ready to help anyone at any time. Her smile would light up a room.
