Galina Denisova, age 80, passed away on Friday November 12. Her life was full of passion for art, nature and science. She was very strong and optimistic, full of energy and determination. She was a loving grandmother to Kate, Julia, Matthew and Elizabeth, who all adored her and spent a lot of time with her. Wife to Dmitrii Denisov, with whom they shared a long happy life together, full of travel, adventure, and common love for science. Dear mother of Maria Kondratyev, for whom she was more than a mom - a closest friend, a colleague and an inspiration. We have decided on cremation, and will spread the ashes in the forest to reunite her with nature, that she loved so much. Her body will rejoin the metabolism of earth and her spirit will always be in our memories and in our personalities that she greatly affected.
