Sofia was born in the village of Lokomi, Kozani Greece in 1926. After much struggle following WWII, she married and had two children. In search of a better life, she moved briefly to Stuttgart, Germany, where she worked a number of factory jobs. Ultimately, in the early 1970s, Sofia immigrated to the Boston area with her husband Nikolaos, and her son George. In America, her family thrived through commercial real estate investment and management, and she became proud grandmother and great-grandmother.

Committed to her faith, Sofia was a remarkably strong woman; fiercely proud of her family and Greek heritage. She possessed an unparalleled love of flowers which she and her husband demonstrated annually on a size and scale unimaginable to even commercial gardeners. At the age of 95, she personally cultivated over one quarter acre of ornate flowerbeds and was preparing for her spring plantings at the time of her death in March.

She was loved by family, friends, and tenants alike and will be missed dearly.

May her memory be eternal.
