Obituary

Crystal Madae Galia

Age 32, of Renton, PA left this life unexpectedly on Friday, October 18, 2019. Crystal was born in Monroeville, PA, on July 9, 1987, the loving daughter of 
Gregg (deceased) and Hope Galia.  Sister of Jeffrey and Kelley Galia, Aunt to JJ Galia, and has numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Most of all, Crystal loved and adored her children, Katessa Jonea (age 6) and Isaiah Benjamin (age 2).  They were her world, her pride and joy and motivation in life. The love of her life, Timmy Russell, also left this world on the same day.  Timmy taught her the love of nature and the outdoors, and embraced her children as his own. Crystal was so talented, she had a beautiful voice, she loved to write, work in her gardens, read, and go fishing.  She was a deep thinker, and loved to learn.  Crystal yearned for a place of peace where she could breathe and just be herself.  She was fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She determined her success by her spiritual growth, how kind her heart was, how educated her mind was and how free her spirit was.  She always felt the need to share what was in her heart.  She was the master of adaptation and constantly in the midst of change. She believed that life is a balance of good and evil, love and hate, angels and demons.  That we need to know the horrible side of life, the pain and sorrow and witness suffering, in order to be a better human and change the world. Celebrate the life and wonderful memories that you have of Crystal.  Remember life is short and should be lived to the fullest.  Visitation in Fellowship Hall of Hebron Church, 10460 Frankstown Road, Penn Hills, PA  15235,  Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 2-8 PM.  The service will be in the sanctuary of Hebron Church on Friday, October 25 at 11 AM.
