Halychyn (1913-1994) was born in Hnylche, Ternopil district. Once she emgirated to the United States, she became an active organizer and leader in Ukrainian-American women's activities. She served as the organizer and president of the Ukrainian Gold Cross, a humanitarian relief and educational association of Ukrainian women in the United States. Founded in 1931 as the women's auxiliary of the Organization for the Rebirth of Ukraine (ODVU), the association was renamed the Ukrainian Red Cross of the ODVU (1933) and incorporated in 1940 as the Ukrainian Gold Cross.
