Have known Duane for over 65 years, always a beautiful person and a pleasure to have company with. We had good times at the classmate luncheons and many laughs. Duane & Bob allowed me to fill their cellar with homemade wine, temporarily, while my house was being built. They never drank a drop of it. Probably the best choice, as some of it was only fit for windshield washer fluid. We will miss her, but will see her again soon. Our condolences to Peter, Paul, sisters, and family.

I will always remember Duane's beautiful smile and loving, fun presence. What a beautiful woman inside and out. She first introduced me to pasta fagioli, and since then if there's no beef in it then it's not pasta fagioli!! I am going back many years (approx 30), but remember the time we spent together so clearly. She spoke about her late husband and all the fun times they had as a family. She let me borrow a dress for a funeral, she enjoyed the hit tub in the snow. She opened her home to a nephew in need, and treated me (his girlfriend at the time) like part of the family. She loved her boys fiercely! I am so sorry Paul, Pete, and the entire family for your loss. She must have been the BEST grandmother! I know she filled your lives with so many beautiful memories that will last a lifetime 💕

My condolences to Paul and Pete and their families. I was welcomed into the Galletta home while in the Navy. I also got to visit with her several times when she would visit Paul in Virginia.
