It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Athena Tsakona, on July 22, 2021, at the age of 94.
A heroine that immigrated to Canada in 1949, Athena was the first of many to leave Greece in order to escape hardship and famine. She soon proceeded to help bring her family and her husband’s family to her new home of peace and prosperity.
Η Αθήνα, η πρώτη!
She was, and always will be # 1!
She was a heroine and a fighter to the end! We will forever treasure her memories and laughter! She has earned her wings. It’s time for peace and love amongst her beloved family, in God’s arms in paradise.
Her selfless heart and soul will live for eternity! Love and memory eternal!
Cherished mother of Artemis Hionis, Peggy Thanopoulos and Jessie Hionis. She profoundly treasured her grandson George Lazaridis who is left with an emptiness in her absence. She will also be deeply missed by her other grandson, Alexander, her sisters, nieces, nephews, godchildren, relatives and friends.
The family will receive condolences on Sunday, July 25, 2021 from 5pm to 9pm at Complexe Yves Légaré, 1350 Desserte Ouest Chomedey, Laval QC H7X 4B5, Canada.
A funeral service will be held on Monday July 26, 2021 at 11:00 am at St.Nicholas Church Church, 3780, Ch. Du Souvenir.
