THERESA ANN (SURIANO) GALIANO Obituary
GALIANO THERESA ANN (SURIANO)
Age 79, of Churchill, passed on to eternal life on August 11, 2014, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved wife of Paul for 58 years; mother of Kim Batcha, Paula Galiano (Greg Carchidi), and Maria Galiano; grandmother to Marco Batcha (Lindsay), Erica Galiano Balestra (Ryan), and Catherine Batcha; great-grandmother to Sophia and Charlotte Batcha; sister to Joseph Suriano (Patty) and John Suriano (Jeannie); sister-in-law to Rosemary Galiano Marcus; preceded in death by her parents, James and Catherine; her sister, Helen Orsi (Ray); brother, Jimmy (Sally); and sons, Frank (Judy) and Tony Galiano. She leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Theresa had a beautiful life and her passing was more of a celebration of this life; as she often said in her last weeks, she was so blessed to have such a wonderful loving family as they gathered nightly at her bedside. She loved the overwhelming camaraderie and support for her husband and children. She was known for her sense of humor, her beautiful smile and her extreme generosity to family and friends. She was the best mother, wife, grandmother, and aunt a person could ever have. Friends received in WILLIAM F. GROSS FUNERAL HOME, LTD., 11735 Frankstown Rd. (at Rodi Rd.), Penn Hills, WEDNESDAY ONLY 2-4, 6-9 p.m. Funeral Prayers Thursday at 9 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial in St. John Fisher Church at 9:30 a.m.
