Most notably, she lionized her three grandchildren, George, Dimitri, and Stelios, whom she devoted countless loving hours of care, from baking pizzas to hemming pants to teaching Greek Pontian dances. During the course of her 64 year marriage to Georgios, she was a selfless and devoted companion, and the two have proudly established a loving family.
