Sherron Gallop

Amory – Willie Sherron Wood Gallop, 81, finished her work here on earth and began her new life in Heaven, on August 12, 2022. She was born in Tupelo, MS on March 25, 1941, to the late Lawrence E. and Mayola Webb Wood.

Sherron grew up in Itawamba County as an only child and graduated from Itawamba High School. She furthered her education by attending ICC, later obtained a Bachelors Degree and then went on to get a Masters Degree in Education at Mississippi State University. God called her to motivate and help mold the yound minds of the future. She was a dedicated teacher who was by the book, at times strict, and ensured that her students learned correctly. Not lacking in the ability to run an orderly classroom, Sherron was the tough teacher whose heart was for excellence in her children. She served the kids and their families for over 33 years and the only regret she had was the piles of paperwork which had engulfed the education system. She made so many friends through the years and she enjoyed the trips taken through the school system. There are so many lives that were touched by Sherron and she helped so many young people in the surrounding counties.

Even more than her classroom family, her immediate family meant the world to her. At a young age, she was set up on a blind date with Jason Gallop. It was love at first site and they were married on August 19, 1966. He was her best friend and God blessed them with a son, daughter-in-law, and two beautiful grand daughters. She loved her family dearly, was caring, and enjoyed doing every and anything with them, especially shopping with the granddaughters whom affectionately called her “Dan”. All those memories made through the years will be cherished.

God effortlessly carried her through all the trials in life. She walked out her faith daily and was a living testament of a servent of God. Not just through teaching all those years, Sherron was always active in helping others yet she never wanted any credit for what she did. She was a humble, faithful member of Meadowood Baptist Church and served on the Bereavement Committee and attended Sunday School. Southern Gospel music gave her inspiration daily. In her free time, Sherron enjoyed going out to eat, hosting gatherings with her family, and just having fellowship with others, especially one of her close friends, Janet Goudelock and her cousin, Claudette Sheffield. Through the years, her friends were many and they all liked spending time visiting and catching up on all the latest news. Always on the go, Sherron had the best time going for hours shopping without tiring and then she would return happy even if she hadn’t purchased a single item. She was just happy to go and live life to the fullest.

There is no doubt that she is a place far better than any of us could imagine here on earth. We wish she could stay forever yet her family and friends celebrate her home going. They know that it is not goodbye, it is, we will see you again some day.

Left behind to cherish the memories of her are her husband of 55 years, Jason D. Gallop, Amory; son, Stephen “Steve” Gallop (Charity), Amory; granddaughters, Mackenzie Gallop and Madison Gallop; cousin, Claudette Sheffield (Joe); and too many other friends to list.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence ad Mayola Webb Wood.
