MOBIT: Daelemans, Teresa Marie [MCspouse RIP] of Daelemans, George Lucien [MC???? RIP]



Teresa Marie Daelemans
(1937 – 2019)

Teresa Marie Daelemans, of West River MD, returned to Christ, June 13th, 2019 surrounded by the love of her family. She joins her husband George Lucien Daelemans, who passed in April 2010.

Born April 1st, 1937 in Queens New York, the oldest child to Violet and Joseph Thompson, both first generation immigrants. Raised in the Catholic faith, A lifelong fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers, she graduated from Dominican Commercial Catholic HS. Upon graduation it was her plan to enter the convent until fate intervened and she met George, a recent graduate of Manhattan College, at a Church dance. They married August 10th, 1957.

Terry learned from her parents’ self-determination and resourcefulness. Her, “Don’t tell what I can’t do” attitude, brought her and her young family of 5 children to Maryland, in 1967, where George began his long career with NASA and the space industry. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s she was a devoted, hands-on, stay at home mom. When the time came, she supported the family income working part time at St. Nicholas Rectory in Laurel. After the move to West River, she became an executive secretary at Annapolis Federal S&L.

She was coaxed into early retirement to return to caring for her grandchildren. It was her life’s goal to be a loving wife and mother, taking great pride in shaping the lives of her children and grandchildren. Something she instilled in them all, for which we are very grateful. Her lasting love for her husband and family will be cherished. Through her faith in the Lord, and her family, Teresa was able to navigate the journey of wife and motherhood.

Her journey now over, she rests in peace in the loving embrace of Christ. She is survived by her 5 children, George, Gerard, Gregory, Peg, and Gary, 15 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and her three younger siblings, Jim, Gerard and Nancy.

Friends and family may call on Sunday June 23rd, 2019 from 4-7 pm at Hardesty Funeral Home, 905 Galesville Rd, Galesville, MD 20765.

JOBIT: O’Hare, Eugene “Gene” C. [MC1956 RIP] 2019-Jun-07



Eugene Charles O’Hare
July 20, 1934 ~ June 7, 2019 (age 84)

Eugene “Gene” C. O’Hare, 85 years old, died on June 7, 2019. A native of Brooklyn, New York, he was the son of the late Joseph A. and Emily Marie Stuart O’Hare.

As an Irish Catholic kid from Canarsie, Brooklyn, Gene attended Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, where he credits the Christian Brothers with teaching him to think. After graduating, he attended Manhattan College, a two-hour train ride each way, and graduated in 1956 with a degree in electrical engineering.

Subsequently, he served three years as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force as a maintenance manager before diving into his 30-year career with the Bell System in and around New York City. He began as an electrical engineer but soon moved into management, a better fit for his outgoing personality. He enjoyed a career with enormous variety, moving every few years to a new challenge. He had director-level jobs in sales, engineering, marketing, banking and course development. He served as communications manager for the World Trade Center while the towers were under construction and headed up the effort to make telephones accessible for the hard of hearing. He invariably led his division’s United Way drive and served as a Big Brother. He concluded his career with what was by then NYNEX as a member of the Quality Team, initiating and presenting quality improvement seminars around the country.

Gene carefully researched retirement destinations before zeroing in on Brevard, where he moved in 1990 and enjoyed an active, creative retirement. He took up tennis as well as painting, carpentry and travel, but the great passion of his retirement years was theater. Best known as a quirky character actor, he was in 22 plays and directed 10 in Western North Carolina, mostly at Brevard Little Theatre. He received numerous awards, both for acting and directing, and contributed his share of backstage work, building and painting scenery and serving as stage manager.

He is survived by his wife, Lyn French O’Hare; his first wife and mother of his children, Mary-Elizabeth Barbarisi, daughter Lea-Ann Germinder; sons Thomas, Mathew, James, and John O’Hare; eleven grandchildren and six great grandchildren, in addition to many nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces.

Witty and quick with a story, Gene enjoyed wide interests and talents along with great energy to pursue them. He will be missed and warmly remembered by family and friends.

Service arrangements will be announced at a later date..

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Brevard Little Theatre, 55 E. Jordan St., Brevard, NC 28712.

JOBIT: Galluzzo, Edward J. [MC1956 RIP] 2019-Apr-17



Edward J. Galluzzo
1934 – 2019 Obituary

Mount Pleasant, SC – Edward J. Galluzzo, 84, originally from Ossining, NY, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2019 in Mount Pleasant, SC.

Edward, son of the late James and Grace Galluzzo, was born in Ossining, NY on October 22, 1934. After graduating from Ossining High School, Edward completed a 4-year degree at Manhattan College in 1956 and eventually became the President and owner of J.V. Galluzzo, Inc., the construction company founded by his father, James Vincent Galluzzo.

Edward is pre-deceased by his wife, Janet, who passed on March 25, 2017 (after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis) from metastatic lung cancer.

After college, Edward (known to most of his family and friends as Ed or Eddie), served in and was honorably discharged from the US Army. Ed met Janet (then Janet Sichel from Briarcliff Manor, NY) in 1959, and they were married on October 29, 1960.

Ed and Janet raised their family and lived in Ossining until they moved to Stamford, CT in 1996. After wintering in Ft. Lauderdale, they lived there full time from 2011, until Janet’s passing in 2017. A year later, Ed moved to Mt. Pleasant, SC, the home of his son James, daughter-in-law Emily, and grandsons, Ned and Jake. Ed is also survived by his daughter Donna and her wife, Lisa Gorney, of Portland, Maine.

Ed was a proud member of the Bricklayers Local 5 NY and Bricklayers International. He and Janet loved dinners out and enjoyed putting their feet in the sand in Puerto Rico, Acapulco and Bermuda. Edward was an avid golfer and always enjoyed a glass of chilled red wine. Both he and Janet were passionate NY Yankees fans, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in 2010 by attending a Yankees game with their immediate family.

Because he hadn’t lived in South Carolina for very long, his family has decided not to hold any services at this time. In lieu of donations or other remembrances, Edward’s children would ask his friends and family to remember him through enjoying a round of golf, a dinner out or a glass of wine with loved ones.

Expressions of sympathy may be viewed or submitted to http://www.mcalister-smith.com.

Arrangements entrusted to McAlister-Smith Funeral Home, Mt Pleasant, 1520 Rifle Range Road Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, 29464, 843-884-3833.
