Obituary for Kathleen M. O'Grady

Kathleen Marie O’Grady, age 87, died peacefully on Saturday, March 9 in Concord, Massachusetts.

Kathleen is survived by her husband, Robert O’Grady of Concord, Massachusetts; her brother, Joseph Gallo of Lake George, New York and Lakewood Ranch, Florida; her five children, Daniel O’Grady and his wife Linda of Hudson, Ohio; Marianne O’Grady of Washington, DC.; Patrick O’Grady and his husband James Wheeler of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts; Joseph O’Grady and his wife Michelle of Middleton, Massachusetts; Catherine Clemente and her husband Rafael of Cambridge, Massachusetts; her eight grand children and one great grand child. Her son Christopher O’Grady who passed in 1994 and her brother Gerard (Brian) Gallo who just passed in 2019 predeceases her in death.


Kathleen was born on November 8, 1931 in North Bergen, New Jersey, to parents Joseph Aloysius Gallo and Catherine Marie Reilly. She was a loving wife and mother to six beautiful children. Kathleen was a devout Catholic Christian, a Eucharistic Minister an active Cursillista and an avid volunteer in the community. After raising her six children, she spent much of her professional career as a physician recruiter at Emerson Hospital in Concord, Massachusetts for nearly twenty years.

For Kathleen, family meant everything. She was a faithful and loving wife, the best Mother a child could ever wish for and a committed and devoted friend to all. Kathleen had one of the most magical and brilliant smiles you have ever seen. She could light up a room and fill your heart with her infectious personality. She had the most gentle and kind spirit and she affected everyone she met in the most positive and caring way.

She was a caregiver, adopter, traditionalist, adventurer, lover of nature and it’s beauty and overall angel on this earth. She has left us now to join the rest of the angels, watching over us from heaven, in bliss and tranquility.
