Her roots were from Tuscaloosa and her commitment to the University of Alabama will be remembered indefinitely by her support through scholarships to the university and gifts to the Sarah Moody Art Gallery. Her impact in Anniston has been felt by many and known by few through her support of many agencies such as the United Way, the Calhoun County Community Foundation, the YMCA of Calhoun County, the Salvation Army, Anniston Museum of Natural History, Music at McClellan, Anniston Soup Bowl, Children’s Services, Habitat for Humanity, Anniston Public Library, the Donoho School and the list goes on and on.
If an agency needed help with a special project or seed money for a fundraiser, or if there was a friend in need, Farley was always there to help. Her incredible generosity was given often without seeking any recognition for her substantial and much needed support.
Farley Moody Galbraith was a true “Southern belle,” and I mean that in the kindest way. This species is soon to be extinct; I believe God quit making them some time ago. There are a few more around but not many. We have all been positively affected by the life of Farley Galbraith, and this community has really lost a special lady.
