It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Panorea Kavallieratos on
July 31, 2020. She was born on June 2, 1960 in Karavomilos Kefalonia, Greece to Argyri and
Dionysios Danalis. She was one of three siblings (Angelo and Irene).
She came to the United States when she was 14 years old. At 17 she married her husband Gerasimos
Kavallieratos. Together they raised three children (Magdalini, Anastasios and Roula).
As a young lady she worked at the Blue Comet Restaurant for over 10 years. She was so determined to
learn as much as possible. She then, along with her husband Gerasimos, opened up Pennys Family
Restaurant and worked together everyday for 27 years. She loved her cutomers and treated them like
family. During Easter and Christmas she would bake Greek traditional cookies and give them out to her
customers. She definitly was a people person. She always went out of her way to help whomever she
could, with a smile on her face. Panorea was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She worked very
hard and never gave up.
Panorea is survived by her parents Argyri and Dionysios Danalis. Her husband of 43 years Gerasimos
