Talia Joy Castellano, who passed away Tuesday morning, is loved all over the world, including by at least one local resident helping to complete her bucket list.

This vibrant young lady touched millions of lives while she bravely battled neuroblastoma, a very aggressive form of cancer.

Talia, 13, was a make-up guru who made lots of YouTube videos. Millions watched her fun and informative tutorials. She said she developed an interest in make-up six years ago, when she was first diagnosed with neuroblastoma.

She even garnered the attention of talk-show host Ellen Degeneres. She appeared on her show and was deemed an "Honorary Cover Girl."

Last summer, Talia announced that was now battling neuroblastoma and leukemia at the same time.

Talia loved her family, her friends and he pup, Bella.

On Talia's Facebook page, the following message was posted Tuesday to let her many fans know of her passing:

#‎prayfortalia‬ It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time. God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were her with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl.

Talia also compiled 74 items into a bucket list that she shared on her Facebook page.

Now, some of her fans are trying to accomplish the tasks, including a Northeast Philadelphia woman whose Post-It covered car was posted to FOX 29's Facebook page -- accomplishing one of the items from Talia's list.

You'll find a list of the latest on information on Twitter regarding #taliasbucketlist in the Twitter widget below this story.

A new Facebook message Wednesday morning was posted to the "Angels for Talia" page that said she'll be laid to rest at a private service this week, then a public event is being scheduled for August. 

About the worldwide response to Talia's passing, the post says in part:

We can't thank all of you enough for this. Thank you everyone for understanding how special this little girl was to us and to this world. Thank you for keeping her spirit alive and showing her family that her message and voice will continue to make an impact across the globe.
