In Memoriam-- Passing of Long Time West Seattleite Theresa Gallagher

On December 1, 2020, Theresa Gallagher (Terry Kremenich) passed away unexpectedly at 58 years of age. Born and raised in West Seattle until striking out on her own shortly after high school graduation, she found her professional niche as a "trained on the job" paralegal in a well-established (65 years), highly regarded West Seattle law firm. She was employed there for 38 years, becoming an important part of the staff that she called her "other family." From the cards and flowers the firm received from their clients, it is clear that they, too, feel a deep loss at Terry's passing.
