Eleanor Miriam Gallagher of Nanticoke, Penn. passed away on Wednesday at the age of 81. Someone’s going to have to explain how this reference to Dick LeBeau got in her obituary.
According to the obituary, the Pittsburgh Steelers may have shortened Gallagher’s life.
Someone from Gallagher’s family feels that the team’s disappointing exit from the playoffs coupled with the departure of defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau was the tipping point.
Eleanor was a devoted Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and the family firmly believes that the recent separation of Dick LeBeau and the Steelers’ poor performance this season might have inadvertently contributed to her demise.
