Cynthia “Cindy” Marie Gallo, 72, of Clarksburg, passed away on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at the United Hospital Center after a battle with cancer.
She was born on February 26, 1950, in Clarksburg, WV, a daughter of the late James R. and Laura Woolard Gallo.
Cindy is survived by her longtime friend, Arlene Ferrell of Clarksburg; brothers, James Gallo and his wife Nancy of Clarksburg and John Gallo of Clarksburg; nephew, Sam Gallo and his wife Veronica of Clarksburg; and great-nieces, Caroline, Jenna, Anna and Mia Gallo, whom she loved more than they will ever know and was so proud of them.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her twin brother, Samuel “Sam” Gallo; sisters-in-law, Beth Gallo and Peggy Gallo; and nephew, Johnny Gallo.
Cindy was born and raised in Clarksburg and was well-known. She was a graduate of Washington-Irving High School. She retired from the Clarksburg Police Department where she was the first female officer in Harrison County, WV. She wore her badge with pride for over 14 years that she served the county and made numerous friends along the way. She loved watching football and was an avid fan of the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. In her earlier years, Cindy loved playing softball, competing in tournaments, and made many long-time friends. She loved to play shuffleboard at Maurice’s Bar with her friends years ago.
Over the past few years, she also loved hanging out with her friends at Uncle Charlie’s, but most importantly, Cindy always looked forward to spending Christmas Eve with her whole family together at her brother’s house. This meant the world to her. Cindy was well-loved and will be sadly missed.
Cindy’s family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. We would also like to thank the staff on the 5th floor at WVU/UHC for the care and compassion they gave her.
Due to a family member also battling cancer, there will be a private service only.
Interment will follow at the Floral Hills Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
