The family of Arhonto Tzioufa is sad to announce her passing on Friday, December 24th, 2021, at the age of 98. Born in the village of Dilofo, Greece on October 28th, 1923, Arhonto was born to the late Nicholas and Soultana Silitzis (nee Spanou). Arhonto moved to Sudbury, Canada in 1967 to live with her beloved daughter Rita Mitsopulos. Arhonto was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and was like a second mother to her four grandchildren John, Susan, Stacey, and Vicki. Arhonto was a great homemaker who loved to cook for her family and was always knitting and crocheting beautiful pieces for the future homes of her grandchildren. She was passionate about gardening, and every summer she produced a bountiful garden of vegetables which she loved to share with family and friends. Arhonto was strong in her faith and was a member of the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. Arhonto will be greatly missed and is survived by her devoted and loving daughter Rita Mitsopulos, her beloved son-in-law Peter Mitsopulos, and her grandchildren John Mitsopulos (wife Penny) of Toronto, Susan Fairbrother (husband Ian) of Toronto, Stacey Mitsopulos of London, and Vicki Hylton (husband Scott) of London. She was lucky enough to spend time with her five great-granddaughters, Sarah, Katherine, Olivia, Stella, and Philippa. Arhonto has many loving cousins in Greece, who were very dear to her heart, as was her extended family in Sudbury. Arhonto was predeceased by her husband Dimitri Tzioufas, and her brothers Konstantinos and Vasilis.
A funeral service will be held at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 486 Ester Road, Sudbury on Monday, December 27th, 2021 at 11:00 an. Interment in the Civic Memorial Cemetery.
