Angela W. Gallego

Updated: Mar 28



Angela W. Gallego was a loving mother, dedicated oncology nurse, and proud Navy Veteran. She grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA and always dreamed of serving her country. After high school, she enlisted in the United States Navy becoming a Master-at-Arms and served multiple tours overseas with stations in New Hampshire and Virginia. After her military service, she used her GI bill to attend nursing school. She quickly found her calling as an Oncology Nurse. Her passion for Sarcoma (cancer) patients took her to two different research facilities in Atlanta, GA and Tampa, FL. Her dedication and care for patients extended past the clinical setting, as she organized a yearly fundraiser for Sarcoma research in 2015.


While Angela’s professional life was one of advocacy and service to others, her personal life with Danny was centered on her greatest loves: her children, Gabriela (9) and William (6). From the moment she knew they were in existence, Angela prayed over them, planned for them, cared for them, and gave all she had to see them happy. She would often joyfully exclaim over her children, “can’t buy this kind of love!” and “how wonderful life is while you’re in the world!”


Upon the loss of her grandmother in 2022, Angela shared this quote by Leo Buscagilia:

“I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.”


Even in her struggles and imperfections, Angela enriched the lives of many. Her love has left an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing we were given the opportunity to share her love. We hope she is at peace. If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, please reach out for help and know that life is wonderful simply because you are in the world.


Angela is survived by her beautiful children, Gabriela and William Gallego; her partner, Danny Gallego; her beloved grandmother, Charlotte Mullins; her parents Kim and Wayne Wall (Kennesaw, GA), her sisters, Mandy Wall (Kennesaw, GA), Amy Nicholson (Flowery Branch, GA); numerous other family members, friends, and countless patients for whom she cared dearly until her last moments.


She is preceded in death by her beloved grandparents, Jack and Joann Wall; and her beloved grandfather, Eldon Mullins.
