Edith M. Galloway, 87

Edith Galloway

Edith Marion Galloway, nee Rotondo, 87, successfully completed her life on Monday, Oct. 2, 2017 while residing at Methuen Village in Methuen, Mass.

Born March 27, 1930 to Ernest and Alice Rotondo, she attended Searles High School, where she was queen of her senior class. Edith married Thomas Galloway, also a Methuen native, on Oct. 1, 1950. Tom predeceased her eight years ago. They raised five children, who survive her — Scott, Bruce, Alice, Tim and Jane, six grandchildren, and numerous great-grandchildren.

Edith is also survived by her sister-in-law, nieces and cousins.

Edith and Tom successfully ran the Galloway Oil Company and Galloway’s Grocerette on Pelham Street in Methuen for 40 years, and then retired to Long Lake in Naples for the last 31 years of their life together. They spent many happy summers at Sebago Lake State Park, camping with a host of Canadian and American friends, who became the Sebago Lake Skinny Dippers Association, and who maintained lifelong friendships with one another. Edith was known for her wicked sense of humor, her love of travel and interior decorating, and for being the scariest witch at Halloween!

A family and friends reception will be held at a later date. Arrangements are being made by Charles F. Dewhirst Family.
