Kathryn L. “Katie” Gallogly, age 86 of West Jefferson and formerly of Sunbury passed away Friday, June 13, 2014 at the Laurels of Hilliard while surrounded by those whom she loved.
She was born on June 8, 1928 in Williamson, West Virginia to the late Charles and Rose Nell (Jones) Whisman. A graduate of Sunbury High School in 1947, she worked as a telephone operator in Sunbury until the birth of her children.
A member of the First Baptist Church in West Jefferson and a founding member of the Grace Baptist Church in Sunbury, she was active all church related activities and their missionary club’s. A keen listener, she was kind, sensitive, and always agreeable. Never a harsh word spoken she loved her home, enjoying her backyard and family.
For 65 years she was married to Vernor L. Gallogly, whom she adored. And Vernor was just as crazy about her, often commenting that Katie was the love of his life, it was love at first sight. She always went along with her husband on his travel and fishing adventures, which made life interesting.
Katie also enjoyed her rose garden and watching the birds, especially humming birds. Fond of the color pink, working jig saw puzzles were a favorite pastime. An avid reader, she kept a tidy home, it was said to be an immaculate home. Her warm heart and agreeable personality, but most importantly her love of family will long be remembered.

She was also preceded in death by 5 brothers and sisters.
