She was also very active, sharing her faith as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Galina thoroughly enjoyed teaching others about the Bible and helped many come to love and serve God.
Anyone who knew Galina would mention that she was much younger looking and acting than her years would indicate. She had a spunky and strong personality, and enjoyed living life to its fullest. Galina was well-known by the Baldwinsville Community as "the lady riding her bike"- She lived independently and prided herself by doing most of her own cooking, cleaning, shopping and riding her bike up until her illness.
