    Galina was a shining light, a leader in her field and a dear friend and colleague to many around the globe. Her cheerful smile and energy is truly missed. In memory of Galina Khitrova, the College of Optical Sciences respectfully offers a Remembrance Ceremony in her honor.

    Shortly after Galina’s passing on June 4, 2016, an intimate group of family and friends gathered on Mt. Lemmon one of Galina’s favorite local retreats, to share the loss of their loved one. The ceremony in October will offer a broader participation so colleagues, students and friends can have closure, share words of remembrance, and join in a reception.    

    Please contact Luz Palomerez at if you would like to share a few words, or if preferred, forward words of remembrance for reading during the ceremony.
