Longtime CVMC nurse dies from COVID-19


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Coosa Valley Medical Center is mourning the loss of one of its nurses, who passed away due to COVID-19.

Anyone who knew Betty Grier Gallaher would describe her as a leader, joyful and life-loving person.

Gallaher spent many of her nights caring for patients in the ER at CVMC. She was a part of the CVMC family for over 43 years, which is longer than over half the facility’s history.

Gallaher graduated from LPN school at Nunnelly State Technical College. She then went to RN school at Sylacauga Hospital School of Nursing. She was truly a home grown nurse.
“Mrs. Betty always had a smile on her face and was our encourager,” said Chief Nursing Officer, Amy Price. “She was a nurse’s nurse. She embodied our charge to care for patients- mind, body, and spirit. She was always gentle and cared deeply for her patients. We mourn her loss and celebrate her life. We extend our sincere condolences to her family.”
