Yolanda Anna (Gyuricza) Barbagallo passed away peacefully on 12/4/2023 at 80 years old in Rochester NY and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is predeceased by her youngest brother James. She is survived by her husband Thomas, the love of her life for 54 years; her daughter Karen and son-in-law Richard and twin grandsons Benjamin and Jonathan; her daughter Michele and son-in-law Lazaro; her younger brother Albert and sister-in-law Denise; a loving extended family and many dear friends.
She grew up in New York City, practiced Pharmacy after college, met Tom and raised their girls in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. She found herself teaching children’s church, substitute teaching at local schools, and fostering young children with Tom. Everyone who knew her knew that she always had more to give of herself to others. She moved to western NY to be near her grandsons a few years ago and again made friends with everyone she met.
