Obituary for Shirley A. (Gallagher) Skinner

Shirley A. (Gallagher) Skinner, 83, of Easton and Bridgewater, passed away Wednesday, August 28, 2019 under the care of her family and hospice at her daughter's home in Middleboro.



Born January 30, 1936 in Braintree, she was the daughter of the late James F. Gallagher and Helen F. (O'Brien) Gallagher. Raised in Easton and Foxborough she graduated from Foxborough High School in 1951.

Shirley was a secretary and bookkeeper for Brockton Area ARC for over 36 years where she was an outspoken advocate for people with special needs.



She loved attending Country and Western Jamborees with her sister Mary and friend Linda, she was an avid crossword puzzle enthusiast and her skills as a wheel of fortune puzzle solver remain unmatched to this day. She loved family get togethers and spending time with all her children and grandchildren . She always laughed at the antics of the younger grand-kids and would spoil them unconditionally. She had a sweet tooth and often bribed the older grand-kids for dairy queen and KFC runs.



She is survived by her children, Diane M. Ranahan and her husband Chuck of Middleboro, Donna J. McGonigle and her husband John of FL, Paul A. Skinner of NH and Robert A. Skinner of West Bridgewater; her grandchildren, Lynn Ranahan, Jeff Ranahan, Johnny McGonigle, Kyle McGonigle, Madison Skinner, Kaitlyn Skinner, Ben Skinner and Abby Skinner; her siblings, Joan Evans of Sandwich, Betty Gnecco of FL, Bob Gallagher of North Easton and Jack Gallagher of Easton; she is also survived by several nieces and nephews. She was the grandmother of the late Danielle Sainsbury.
