Martha McKinney Galloway, a lifelong resident of Lake Toxaway, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Monday, June 1, 2020, at the age of 77. 

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but especially by her three children, Lisa Galloway, of Lake Toxaway, and her significant other, Steve Stone, of Liberty, S.C .; Bucky Galloway and wife, Karen, of Mills River, and Andrea Rackley and husband, Jonathan, of Lake Toxaway;  and her sister, Brenda Berkshire, of Easley, S.C.

  She will be remembered for her contagious laugh, witty humor and her undying love for her family. You didn’t have to know her long until you also learned that the greatest joy in her life came from her grandchildren. They truly were the reason for her every breath. Those lucky enough to be able to call her Nana include Kennedy Troyer and husband, Tyler, of Boone, Graham Galloway, of Apex, and Corey, Braden and Gunner Rackley, of Lake Toxaway.

  She was preceded in death by the love of her life and husband, Elvin “Shorty” Galloway; her parents, Allen and Vergie McKinney; and six sisters and three brothers. 

  In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Martha may be made to: The Rosman High School Football Program, 749 Pickens Hwy, Rosman, NC 28772. Make contributions payable to: Rosman High Football. Although she hated the cooler weather, she always looked forward to fall when she could watch her grandsons play for the orange and black.

  Abiding with her wishes, a private graveside service will be scheduled for a later date. 

Online condolences may be left at

Moody-Connolly Funeral Home and Crematory is caring for the family.
