Service scheduled for former teacher

Mike Blackburn will speak on behalf of the Fine family

A public memorial for Flo Gallagher, a former Grand Junction High School teacher, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Robinson Theater at Mesa State College.

A memorial service for Terry Fine, a well-known Grand Junction dentist, will be scheduled when his wife, Linda, is able to attend.

Flo Gallagher and Terry Fine died and Linda Fine was seriously injured in a shooting Saturday morning in front of the Fines’ home, 2631 Chestnut Drive.

The shootings remain under investigation by the Grand Junction Police Department.

Linda Fine is recovering at St. Mary’s Hospital, and her family offered “thanks for the prayers and kindnesses extended to them,” said Mike Blackburn, a family spokesman.

Flo Gallagher, 60, is survived by her husband, Mike, a business teacher at Mesa State and former president of the college; a daughter, Lauren, of Spokane, Wash.; and a brother, Glenn Rollin Mayhugh, of Austin, Texas.

In addition to his wife, Terry Fine, 61, is survived by two sons, Brad L. of Grand Junction and Jeff W. of Broomfield; a daughter, Paula D. Voytilla of Fruita; two brothers, Warren of California and Brian of Texas; a sister, Carol Johnson of North Carolina; and a granddaughter.

Families asked that memorial contributions be made in care of Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Colorado, P.O. Box 60307, Grand Junction 81506.

Contributions also may be made to the Flo Gallagher Children’s Fund, or to Camp Good Grief in memory of Terry Fine.
