Gypsy Marilyn Rose Callahan

Gypsy Marilyn Rose Callahan

Gypsy Marilyn Rose Callahan, 76, of Taylorsville, left this world for her heavenly home on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.

She was born on October 12, 1942, the daughter of the late Doyle and Mildred Hooper Dills. During her career, she worked as a sewer at Royal Comfort for almost 30 years. She was a faithful member of Antioch Baptist Church and of the Faithful Ones Sunday School Class.

Gypsy enjoyed just getting out and going, especially to the mountains to watch the leaves change. She also liked going to the antique car shows. Gypsy was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to all. She will truly be missed but will forever be in our hearts.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 39 years, Tommy Callahan, and brother, Louis Rose.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Pam (Tony) Teague, Tammie Rose, and Tommy Callahan, all of Taylorsville; grandchildren, Jeremiah Godfrey of Hickory, Timothy Gathers, Jr. of Taylorsville, Susan (Jason) Beck of Cherokee, and Tiffany Fie of Lincolnton; great-grandchildren, Zechariah Sandlin, Katlyn Creson, Scarlett Rose (who is on the way), Ella Ziegler, Ari Godfrey, Copelyn Beck, Emberlyn Beck, and Brandon Teague; brother, Keith Rose of Knoxville, Tennessee; sister-in-law, Shirley Rose; along with nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.

The family will receive friends on Friday, December 7, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at Antioch Baptist Church. A memorial service to celebrate her life will follow at 6:00 p.m. with Rev. Mark Morris officiating. Inurnment will be with the family.

    My condolences to the Callahan family. Gypsy was a high school classmate at St. Stephens High School in Hickory, NC. She will be missed by the St. Stephens High School Class of 1961. We shared many laughs and good times with Gypsy during our years together. A good friend to all.
