Anna Trantas

July 13, 2023


Anna Trantas (née Marmarou) beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully with her family by her side and became an angel on July 13th, 2023.

She is survived by her daughters, Reneé (Michael Trivelis), Diane (Robert Walzak), Christina (Arthur Collias). Her beloved grandchildren, Kristina (Brian Wittig), Dana (Buddy Winters), Nicole Walzak, Michael Trivelis, Dimitri Collias, and her great-grandchildren Brian and Mia Wittig, Alexis and Analeah Winters.

Born to parents George Marmarou and Irene Marmarou of Mytelene Greece. Her story began in Philadelphia on October 29, 1936 where she was born and raised. She was the third youngest of four children (Stratos, Anthony, Anna and Frank Marmarou), but the only girl for her three brothers to love and protect. 

She met her handsome, kind, loving and caring husband, Sideris Trantas, in the early 1950’s. He was the absolute love of her life. Together they built a beautiful life for their three daughters Reneé, Diane and Christina. Sadly, in 1982 Sid lost his life to a battle with Cancer at the early age of 47. As a young widow, Anna continued working hard carrying the legacy of her husband, providing endless love and support to her daughters even though a piece of her heart was truly missing. 

She was a woman of faith, a lifelong member of both Annunciation/Envangelismos and Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox churches. Anna enjoyed spending her time with her daughters, their families, grandchildren and great grand children. Most special, the endless time she had spent with her great-grandchildren had been most special to her over the last eight years. 

She was a lively, vibrant soul with beautiful striking white hair, a contagious laugh and a smile that could light up any room. She lived her life with grace, class and faith. Her energy, love, and compassion truly spoke to the incredible woman she was, as she had touched so many lives. She will truly be missed. 

While the grief of this loss is unfathomable, she will never be forgotten. Her legacy lives on through her daughters, grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She will always be loved and remembered as the proud matriarch of her family.
