ROBELYN “ROBY” GALEON
Robelyn Y.D. Galeon, 37, of Ewa Beach, was born on December 22, 1972 and passed away at Queen’s
Medical Center on November 16 when she was called home to live with her Lord, Jesus. Robelyn started her career at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children as a candy striper while in
high school and after receiving her R.N. degree at the University of Hawaii she continued at Kapiolani, the place of her birth, as a charge nurse on the OB-Gyn floor, caring for others with her compassionate and loving heart.
Robelyn married her high school sweetheart, Orlando Galeon Jr., on January 2, 1999. In addition to her devoted husband, Robelyn is survived by her parents Robert and Leticia Dacanay; parents-in-law Orlando Sr. and Fe Galeon; Sisters Jane (Brad) Toyama, Lilybeth (Nicholas) Ching, Joyce and Susan
Dacanay; sisters-in-law Lisa and Annette Galeon; niece and nephews Jett, Justin, Julia, Tyler and Kyle; numerous other extended family and friends.
In 2007 Robelyn was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Robelyn was a member of New Hope Leeward and being a devoted Christian, she lived as she believed. Throughout the many hospitalizations, treatments and ups and downs of this disease she remained rooted in her faith, always praising God for the daily blessings and the grace that He provided. Even though this past year was particularly challenging, Robelyn evangelized every chance that she had and was the pillar of strength for those around her. She was certainly embraced in heaven with Jesus telling her “Well done, good and faithful servant, welcome home”.
