Greek-American Kostoula Bombas Is Mourned

BOSTON – Kostoula (Grigoropoulos) Bombas of Roslindale, MA passed away on January 6. She was born on January 14, 1939 to the late Grigorios and Aglaia (Sotiropoulou) Grigoropoulos and immigrated to the United States on March 10, 1978. She was the beloved wife of the late George Bombas and the loving mother of Aristea Dalavouras and her husband Theodoros, and Maria Kalaitzidis and her husband George. She was also the loving grandmother of Niko, George and Kostoula Dalavouras and Eleni and Demetri Kalaitzidis, great grandmother of Jade Dalavouras, and the sister of Petroula Paloukos of Greece and the late Vasili Grigoropoulos.

Kostoula was a hard-working woman and made a good life for her family. She worked for as a caretaker for over 40 years for another Greek family, where she cared and loved for them as her own, and to her it was not an occupation – it was her way of life. She loved flowers, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. She had a big heart and a big sense of humor, always ready to make you smile when she entered a room.

Kostoula enjoyed scratch tickets and probably would have helped the world if she won. She had a heart of gold and was loved by all who were fortunate enough to meet her. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Her funeral was held January 10 at the St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church of Roslindale, MA. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the above-named church. Kostoula was laid to rest in the Gardens at Gethsemane Cemetery, West Roxbury, MA.
