Charlotte Wales Gallacher, 77, passed away on November 11, 2020 at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. Charlotte was born on January 19, 1943 to Edward L. Young and Helen T. (Nivison) Young in Boston, Massachusetts.

Charlotte attended Walnut Hill School in Natick, MA and graduated from Glen Ridge High School in Glen Ridge, NJ. She matriculated at Skidmore College, later graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in Art History. She achieved her Masters in Comparative Asian Studies at the University of Hong Kong.

She enjoyed a life filled with travel, but her heart was truly anchored on Capitol Island, Maine. There Charlotte took pleasure in exploring, attending socials, visiting with friends, and taking boat rides with her sons; all the while imbuing the importance of island history and traditions to her children and grandchildren. Her empathy for the natural world extended to her love of dogs, especially her Collies, Alice and Thom.

Charlotte played a solid game of tennis with special fondness for the weekly ladies’ group on Capitol. She was known for her fish chowder and annual lobster feasts, complete with scratch-made wild blueberry muffins. A skilled correspondent with impeccable penmanship, she wrote eloquent and heartfelt letters and chose gifts with exceptional thoughtfulness. In her quiet moments, she was an avid reader and enjoyed many creative exploits including painting and gardening.

She was a founding member of the Miles Memorial Hospital Thrift Shop in Damariscotta, ME, former President of the F-ME Chapter of PEO, and an active member of the Second Congregational Church in Newcastle, ME.

Charlotte is predeceased by her husband Andrew K. Gallacher, mother Helen T. Nivison and father Edward L. Young. She is survived by her husband George M. Gregory of Topsham, ME, son Douglas A. Gallacher and wife Monica P. Gallacher of Andover, MA, son Charles E. (Ned) Gallacher of South Portland, ME, granddaughters Sophie and Audrey Gallacher of Andover, MA, sisters-in-law, Jane DeBarbieri of Westfield, MA, Claire Gallacher of Ocean, NJ and Patty Montague of Howell, NJ, and also nephew Chris and nieces Kyla, Molly, and Maddy.

Gregarious and charismatic, Charlotte surrounded herself with family and close friends extending gracious warmth and kindness to everyone she encountered. Her wonderful sense of humor and bright smile will shine on in the hearts of all who loved her.

A private, family service will be planned for a future date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given in Charlotte’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 North Michigan Avenue, Floor 17, Chicago, Il 60601 or online to

Charlotte was my PEO sister and I shall miss her smiling face. We used to room together at PEO conventions because we were both deaf and figured no one would be bothered if we snored! Her sense of humor was huge! A lovely lady, kind and generous. Smile down on us.

Over the years Charlotte and I had great fun working in the Jewelry Dept. at Miles Thrift Shop. On a holiday that the shop was closed another volunteer decided to open up for a busload of shopper from Upstate New York. I thought that sounded like fun and came in also. Shortly after we opened Charlotte came in with her beautiful smile and a plateful of cookies she had made for the travelers/shoppers and workers. We all had a wonderful couple of hours and several years later the woman that organized the bus trip came into the shop and was telling me about the wonderful adventure the group had. Well, I said, I was there that day and it was pretty special.

Charlotte and George were part of a Supper Club in our area and Bud and I were lucky enough to spend several evenings
with them enjoying some really great food. Loved the Hong Kong stories.

Charlotte, her lovely smile and generous nature shall be very much missed. Also I didn't realize she went to Walnut Hill - my daughter graduated from Walnut Hill also. Another lovely connection.

I was devastated when I saw that Charlotte passed away on Nov 11th. And it took us forever to find her obituary, and attempt to discover what she died of. Since donations to the Alzheimer's Association is suggested in lieu of flowers, we assume that was her cause of death.
Charlotte will always be one of my very dearest friends - we enjoyed many happy times together in Barrington when we both found ourselves alone, and were seeking out new friends. I also enjoyed many activities with Charlotte and her sons, Doug and Ned - Day trips to Newport with Ned and his 'current' girlfriend! And a favorite memory is Doug and Monica's wedding - that was a very special day! Ironically once we had both re-married, and had moved up to Maine we drifted apart. I've been missing Charlotte and recently planned to get back in touch after the holidays / and the Covid. How sad it was to read of her death on facebook. I send my love and condolences to her family : and I am hopeful our paths will cross again in the future. With love Anne Becker

To Charlotte's family:

I am so very saddened to hear of Charlotte's death. I knew her well from both Second Congregational and many hours together on the tennis courts of Glidden Street and the Y in Damariscotta. I thought the obituary captured her spirit and personality so very well. She was always a joy to be with. May your innumerable happy memories of her bring you joy and comfort.
God bless you all. With loving thoughts,
Ruth Monsell
