Eugenia “Jane” Georgia Kefalides, born on March 1, 1927 in Geneseo, IL, passed away peacefully at her home in San Rafael, CA on Wednesday December 28th at the age of 95. Jane was born to William and Toula Kutsunis and raised in Geneseo, Illinois. In 1949, she married Nicholas Kefalides, and moved to Chicago where Nick completed his medical education. Jane and Nick had many adventures traveling the world during their sixty four years of marriage, including three years they spent in Lima, Peru and two years in Oxford, England. In 1970, with their three small children, they left Chicago and moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia. There they raised their three children in Merion Station, PA and maintained a gracious home for 50 years. Jane was a devoted mother and wife, with a generous spirit and a keen sense of humor.
