Obituary

Anna Makri passed away on Saturday, November 19th after her long battle with dementia at the age of 77. Anna was strong-willed and a fighter until the very end. 

She was born on April 1st, 1945 to Anastasios and Ephrosini in the small village of Xironomi, Viotias. From a young age, Anna was strong-spirited and adventurous, constantly getting in trouble for making the village her playground, stressing out her older sister Falitsa at every turn. She left the village at a young age to continue her education in Athens. She then worked at the Greek Airforce for many years, before moving to America and settling in Pennsylvania. 

Anna was always a strong advocate for education, Greek culture and history, and empowering women. She could turn any conversation into a history or life lesson. She even spent a few years teaching at Aristotle Greek school where all her grandchildren went. Aside from teaching Greek, she instilled her faith in Greek Orthodox Christianity in her family, and greatly enjoyed taking them to church every Sunday and every day during Holy Week. During her free time, Anna loved to travel, read, listen to music, sing, and shop. One didn’t have to read Vogue to see what the new fashion trends were, they just had to see what Anna was wearing. She took much pride in her home, filling it with paintings, books, and flowers, so much so, that her family referred to it as Anna’s museum. She touched the hearts of many with her unconditional love and her endless wisdom.

Ήταν μια Κυρία, μια πραγματική αρχόντισσα. 

She is survived by her daughter Sissy, her son-in-law George, and her three grandchildren, Marianna, Constantinos, and Christina, to which she dedicated her entire existence to. Anna is also survived by her niece Athena, nephew Taso, and her sister Falitsa.
