Tesia Lynn McGallagher, age 47, passed away peacefully October 15th, 2021 at 8:44am. She was born in Mobile, Alabama on November 25, 1973.
Tesia, also known as GiGi by her grandchildren, was a woman loved and known by many in her small town of Coden, Alabama. Often known for her love of cosmetology, where she enjoyed years of laughter, meeting, serving and cutting the hair of many in her community. Her love of serving people through cosmetology was motivated by her love to serve others through the local church she attended, Forward Church, in Irvington, Alabama. The work of her hands and character of her heart can be summed up as follows;
“She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates” Proverbs 31:30-31.
Tesia Lynn McGallagher is survived by her husband, Christian McGallagher; children, Dustin and wife, Carrie McGallagher, Justin and wife, Caitlyn McGallagher and grandchildren, Olivia and Wilson Luke McGallagher; siblings, Brandon and wife, Kirbi Johnson and (Bit) Wilson and wife, Misty Johnson.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Wilson Johnson Sr. (Nookie) and Jenny Johnson.
