Helen Vyres passed away at age 101 on Sunday, November 25, 2018. She was born on January 28, 1917, in Portland Oregon of Peter and Polixeni Maimonis. Pre-deceased by husband Stratis Vyres, she leaves behind two daughters, Paula Vyres, Virginia Kakridas, wife of John Kakridas; two grandchildren, Peter Kakridas and wife Sue Kakridas; Elaine Kakridas Duguay wife of Frederick Duguay; and four great grandchildren, John Kakridas, Kristine Kakridas, Olivia Duguay, and Alexa Duguay.
As a person she was generous, friendly, and made fast friends wherever she went. She valued her friends, and was devoted to her relatives. She was also unconventional in many ways for a woman of her generation, and wasn’t stuck in the old ways.
