Manya loved life and lived her life to the fullest.
Sadly, her last breath was taken a few days ago with her daughter Marina by her side. She is survived by her ex-husband Janos, her daughter Vicky Vasiliki, son-in- law Matteo and granddaughter Mila Sofia. Michael her beloved son, preceded her death over eight years ago from cancer.
Born in Athens, she travelled to Montreal in 1948 invited by relatives and made this city her home for the next 70 years. Manya had an immense love for Greece and spent all of her summers there “island hopping” and enjoying her passion for swimming in the Greek sea. Manya was often considered the “life of the party” and created many enduring friendships. She will be missed by the many people she touched throughout her lifetime.
Our heartfelt thanks to the family and friends who have reached out to us with their warm memories of Manya.
