Fani peacefully fell asleep in the Lord on Saturday February 11, 2023, with her family by her side at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
Fani was a devoted wife, a loving mother and a proud and loving yiayia.
Fani was born in Amyndeon, Greece, where at a young age, she became a teacher. She moved to Canada in 1966 where she met and married her love Lazaros. They spent 53 wonderful years together. She was predeceased by Lazaros, her sister Pavlina, and her parents Melpomeni and Evangelos.
She was an amazing and loving mother to Bill (Anita) and Helen (Constantine) and a cherished yiayia to Callie, Nicolas, Fanoula, Lazaros, Sofia and Peter. Fani was a dear sister to Soto (Eileen), sister in law to Kostaki (Anna) and leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, koumbari, in-laws, and friends from far and wide. Fani will be remembered for her generosity, and always welcoming friends and family into her home which was a centre of love, laughter, and much food.

“Strive to be united first with the Lord, and then with the Saints, so that after death they may receive you as familiar friends into the everlasting dwellings.”
