April 19, 1955 - September 10, 2019
Susie Virginia Gallagher unexpectedly passed away on September 10, 2019 in Tomball, Texas at the age of 64. Susie was a long-time resident of Vienna, VA before relocating to Houston, TX. She was a devoted mother to Emilia and Ginny, phenomenal grandmother to Olivia, Easton, and Malcolm, and loving friend to many. In 2016, she retired from Exxon Mobil. She was a passionate retiree focusing on the things she loved – her grandkids, her beloved Reagan, her new Texas garden, visiting the Sands of Kahana on the island of Maui, and reconnecting with friends near and far. Born in Cheverly, Maryland to Col. Donaldson, USAF, Ret. and Pattie Frizzell, both deceased. Her childhood was spent traveling the world and living globally as a member of an Air Force family with siblings Mary, Jimmy, and Ann. Her family moved often living in Fussa, Japan; Hampton, VA; Montgomery, AL; Blue Ridge Summit and Carlisle, PA; to name a few. Susie graduated from David H. Crockett High School in Austin, TX and continued her education in State College, PA at The Pennsylvania State University. She experienced the Vietnam era and its protests, along with many changes to society. Susie believed in justice and kindness and shared that with us all. Susie graduated from Penn State in 1977 and worked as a paralegal for Morgan Lewis and a friend before starting her family in 1984. She rejoined the workforce at Blankenship Keith, PC before launching a 22-year career at Mobil Corp, then Exxon Mobil, where her work involved the scheduling and transport of petroleum throughout the many ports of the world. She was an avid sports fan, a talented AAU swimmer and proud Penn State alumni. Her enthusiasm for her girls was unmatched. A Vienna softball mom, Cardinal Hill Pool regular, and James Madison High School swim, lacrosse, and cheerleading fan through and through. She rode the emotional rollercoaster that comes with being a lifelong Washington Redskins fan. Even living in enemy territory, she proudly donned her burgundy and gold.
