It is with great sadness that the family of Athena Dervenis announce her passing. Athena Dervenis, 91, peacefully passed away in her sleep on July 17th 2021.
Though she will be deeply missed, we rejoice in her union with The Lord and her family. We honour Athena by celebrating her life and achievements. We will forever cherish our memories of her in our hearts. Find comfort, she is never truly gone. Athena lives through us by the lessons we learned from her that we use in our lives and pass on to future generations. She will always be looking down and praying for us, now from heaven instead, forever the center of the Dervenis family.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children; Peter, Mary & Christina; her grandchildren; Aaron, Athina, Amber, Elizabeth, Michael-George, Billy & Joshua; her 4 great-grandchildren; her godchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and everyone else whose lives she touched.
She is reunited with her husband George Peter Dervenis (d.1974); mother Dimitria Kosmatos, Nee: Yitsou (d.2005); her Father Yianni Panopoulo and Stepfather John Kosmatos
