Obituary for Sis. Sophia Galanis

by

sophia1We received the following  e-mail from  Bennie Hill. he  received  it today (June 29, 2013

 From Emie (Galanis) Paschou.    “Dear brother Benny and to all brothers and sisters,  I’m in the sad position to inform you that my mother Sophia Galanis went with the Lord today around 12.00 p.m. at the age of 84 years. I and my brother want to thank each of you for being there for her all these years, remembering her in your prayers and supporting her constantly in every way possible.  It was also a great relief for us to have you with us in prayer because of her illness and severe health condition that needed constant care. Though she suffered a lot those past 2 years, she is now in glory with Jesus and my father. Tomorrow we will have a simple funeral to honor her and see her to her last residence. Thank you so much again for everything and may God bless you all.”

Yours faithfully

Emie Paschos & Konstantine Galanis

Remembering Sis. Galanis:  Sophia was born January 11, 1929    (84 years). She was the  faithful helpmeet to Bro. George  Galanis (went home to be  with the  Lord in 2003). She and Bro. George  faithfully  ministered for the  Lord in their home country of Greece.

    We thank the Lord for the lives of George and Sophia Galanis. Brother and Sister Galanis stayed in our home twice and we got to know and love them very much. Once Sister Galanis prepared us a traditional Greek meal with Janet’s help. That was quite a challenge since the materials for the food were hard to find locally and because she didn’t speak English and Janet didn’t speak Greek. But, she pulled it off and it was delicious.
    George and Sophia were devout, serious servants of Christ. I was with George once when he reprimanded a believer who had acceped some of the false claims of science. I was impressed by his knowledge of the Bible and science and his boldness in confronting error. Back in the early eighties he discussed Sophias’ health with us and conveyed a gentle sensitivity and deep trust that the Lord would provide.
    May God bless their family and loved ones with peace and joy as we all know that, “To be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord.”

    I did not know Sis. Galanis, but had met and heard Bro. George preach several times. Many years ago he asked for someone in our group to define “sophomore”. Everyone knew it meant a 10th grade HS student or a 2nd year college student, or so we thought. He smiled broadly and said it generally meant “one who is wise”, thus pointing out the obvious contradiction when sophomore students begin to think they are wise. He had a sense of humor, and I’m sure Sis. Galanis got more than a few chuckles from him in their long marriage. I look forward to seeing them again soon.
