Support the children of Maryann Keleher Gale

It is with great sadness and disbelief that we announce the sudden and very unexpected passing of Maryann Keleher Gale from a brain aneurysm on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. We are grateful to have had five additional years with her after her miraculous recovery from a ventricular fibrillation (V fib) cardiac event in 2016.

We’ve set up this GoFundMe because as most of you know, Maryann leaves behind her two beautiful children, Samantha and Liam. As you can imagine, the children are devastated by the loss of their mother.

Please help us raise funds for Samantha and Liam’s future. We would like to support them during this time of grieving and as they navigate a new way of life without their beloved mother. Samantha is excited to start at Hunter College in the Fall, and Liam is looking forward to junior year at his boarding school where they have supported his growth and development in so many wonderful ways. Elizabeth Abrahamson, Maryann's sister, will be collecting your donations and making sure they are distributed in the appropriate way.

Please keep Samantha and Liam in your prayers, and we thank you for any support you can give. If you are not in a position to donate, we would appreciate it if you could please share this GoFundMe with your friends and family.
