Barbara Gannon was the director of Grand Island’s Golden Age Center. People trusted her with the senior center’s operations, including the money. Unfortunately, Ms. Gannon was addicted to casino gambling. From 2011 to 2017, she embezzled $110,671 from the center. An accountant finally discovered the theft when Ms. Gannon retired in 2017. She pled guilty in Erie County Court in February and could face up to 15 years in prison.
