It has been recorded that Galyn died of cancer that spread through her body and lungs with her GoFundMe page disclosing that, “The doctors claimed she only had days maybe a week to live, and after remaining optimistic and praying for a miracle, she has sadly passed.”

In a statement obtained by E! Online, Galyn’s representative, Sheila Legette, revealed that, “Galyn had been very private about her battle with cancer the last 9 months. But remained positive and continued to enjoy life in Hawaii.”

Sheila added that Galyn, who “loved the ocean,” had an energy that was felt in any room that she entered. Noting that the actress died in a Hawaiian hospital, Hollywood Reporter recalled how flawless her character in M.A.N.T.I.S. was.

Galyn played the role of police detective Leora Maxwell on the short-lived Fox sci-fi drama before she appeared on three episodes of “Twin Peaks.”
