January 19, 1931 – May 17, 2020
Rose M. Galea, age 89, born January 19th, 1931 passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 17th, 2020.
Born in Raglitz, Austria she spent her life always wanting to travel. When she came to America, she met her loving husband in New York City. They began their new life together, settling into Elmhurst, Queens where she began a career working at White stones savings bank. However, her greatest accomplishment was being an adored mother to her three children: Vincent, Joseph, and Diane Galea. She will always be remembered for her amazing cooking and baking in which the traditions she created will live on forever through her grandkids: Little Vinny, John-Michael, Ashlyn, and Camden. Her great-grandchildren Ariana, Olivia, and Jordan will grow up knowing what a wonderful woman she was.
