The Gallagher Legacy

For more than five decades Glenn and Iris Gallagher were strong supporters of The Ohio Eastern Star family. In 1939 Iris began her service and, in 1968 Glenn served as Worthy Grand Patron. Iris was present in 1951 for the groundbreaking of The Ohio Eastern Star Home. Iris honored Glenn’s memory in 2001 by presenting a very special gift to The Ohio Eastern Star Home to fund a beautiful community center. With this act of generosity, The Glenn A. Gallagher Centre became their legacy- a lasting legacy for all our community to enjoy.
