Myelodysplastic syndrome, Tina Liabotis passed away in Burlington,

Tina was born in
Tillsonburg to Stavros and Anthoula Gettas and was raised by parents
who assimilated well into Canadian society. She attended Queen’s
University where she studied Math, Science, and English, obtaining a
BA. It was there that her relationship developed
with William Liabotis, with whom she was married for 57 years. After
working as a social worker for the Children’s Aid Society, she began
teaching at Mohawk College, in the Academic Upgrading
Program. She was loved by her students for her fairness,
kindness, and commitment; and took the time to explain
things so that each student could understand. Tina was known
to her colleagues for her clear and decisive thinking. Tina
was a devoted mother, daughter, yiayia and wife, who gave tremendously
to her family. Among her many skills were design, flower
arranging and cooking.
One of her greatest
joys was as yiayia to William. They shared many laughs,
snuggles, interesting conversations and wonderful vacations.
She is survived by her husband William, son Peter and daughter Dr.
Stephanie (Dr. Robert Goodman), her brother Deno (Sherry), and many
cousins she loved deeply.
