Jim Lee Green, 82, passed away at his home January 30, 2021.

Born March 26, 1938 in Bengal, Oklahoma to Myrl (Mize) and Lewis Green, Jr., Jim graduated from Panola High School and eventually settled in Lincoln, Nebraska.  There he met and married Eunice Buck in 1960 and graduated from Union College in 1965 with a degree in Business Administration.  Eunice and Jim had 3 children, Stephen, David and Daina. After retiring from Union Drywall, where Jim worked for many years, he did maintenance work at his church, College View SDA Church, until his 2nd retirement. Although Jim lived in the city, he remained an Oklahoma country boy at heart.  His hobbies included playing his guitar, singing with friends, tending to and riding his horses, and visiting with everyone.  He dearly loved his family and especially enjoyed his granddaughter Meghan and great-granddaughter Signe. In the last year he found comfort in the kindness of his caregivers, especially “Dr.” Crystal Andersen.

Jim was preceded in death by his sister Donna Dodd and his son David.  Jim is survived by his wife of 60 years, Eunice and children Stephen and Daina, son-in-law Shawn, granddaughters Meghan and Signe as well as siblings Bill Green, Pat Foster, Betty Robinson and their families.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

Michael Whitney Gallagher, 37, passed away from cancer on November 3, 2020, in Hickory, NC. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska to Carl Andrew and Linda Ann (Lovgren) Gallagher.  Raised by his parents along with his brother, Robert, in Lincoln, NE,  Michael attended Hartley Elementary School, Culler Middle School, Lincoln Northeast High School and the Arts and Humanities Focus School his senior year graduating in 2001.  He was a four-year competitor on the LNE swim team and swam for the Nebraska Aquatics club team. His early jobs were lifeguarding, waiting tables and bartending.

After stops in Minnesota and South Dakota for college, Michael studied Architectural and Engineering Design at Southern Maine Community College before transferring to the Maine College of Art (MECA) in Portland. There he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Woodworking and Furniture and Design. At the North Carolina University Crafts Center in Raleigh, NC, he taught woodworking classes.  His furniture making took a turn when a man came into his shop to see if he wanted to do some subcontract work making ball winders for yarn.  As time went on, he bought the business, Nancy’s Knit Knacks, then bought Strauch Fiber Equipment and finally, this year, bought Heavenly Handspinning. The three businesses will be his legacy and will continue.  Along the way, he also bought and remodeled houses to sell.

Those left to cherish his memory and the man with the beautiful blue eyes and the smile that doesn’t end are: his daughter, Aeon Casteel Gallagher of Alexander, NC; his fiancée, Ashley Diane Chapman and her two daughters, Presley and Lily Olson of Newton, NC; parents, Carl Andrew and Linda Ann (Lovgren) Gallagher of Lincoln, NE; brother, Robert Andrew Gallagher (Tammy Ann) of Milford, Ohio; nephew, Caden Andrew Gallagher; nieces, Zoe Mae and Layna Whitney Gallagher, Milford, Ohio; former wife, Tanya Marie Casteel of Alexander, NC; uncles and aunts, John (Nancy) Lovgren of Round Rock, TX, Bob (Linda) Lovgren of Omaha, NE, Roberta Lauderdale of Raytown, MO, Frances (Oscar) Ramirez of Thornton, CO, Stacie (David) Bebber of Edmond, OK and numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents: Dr. Robert Ellsworth and Dorothy May (Whitney) Lovgren, paternal grandparents: Robert Frank Gallagher and Ella Ruth Gallagher, aunt: Ella Bell Gallagher, uncles: Robert Frank Gallagher and Robert Steven Lauderdale; cousins, Charles Wade Comstock, Tatum Faith Lovgren.

When you think of Michael, have a sparkle in your eye, a smile on your face and a laugh in your heart. His number one priority was and will always be his daughter, Aeon.
