Chrysoula Lykourgos, 70 passed away peacefully after a month long battle with Cancer on Sunday, January 31st. surrounded by her loving family.
Soula along with her parents and brother immigrated to the United States from Katerini Greece in 1963. She graduated from Northeastern University with a Foreign Language degree. Soula dedicated her life to serving the Lord and the Church. She was a devout and faithful Christian. She had a beautiful voice and sang for many years in the Church Choir. She was also one of the best Sunday school teachers.
Soula is preceded by her parents Efterpi and Fotios Lykourgos whom she lovingly cared for. Soula leaves behind her favorite big brother Apostolos Lykourgos and his wife Evropi her absolutely favorite sister-in-law. Her eldest and favorite niece Effie Di Giandomenico and her husband 1st Michael and children Brady and Chloe who called her Yiayia Soula. Her favorite nephew Nicholas and his wife Rachel and children Sophia and Marc Apostolos who also called her Yiayia Soula. Her youngest and favorite niece Christine and her husband 2nd Michael. She also leaves behind many cherished relatives and friends that are spread all over the world, especially from Katerini Greece. She loved gardening and doing her crossword puzzles. She spent time connecting and keeping in touch with her Facebook friends. Soula enjoyed going on silly adventures which Effie mostly dragged her to, with her friends Amanda, Beth and all the kids. She was up for anything! Doing “1 more fun thing” was always the goal! She was an amazing Greek cook known for her delicious Pastitsio. Sadly it looks like she has forgotten to leave me this recipe. Yet, with all the yummy Greek food, Soula could never resist a Bubba burger made by 1st Mike.
Saying she will be missed is an understatement of gigantic proportion. However we are at peace knowing Soula is in the loving arms of her Creator and Savior Jesus Christ.
Visitation for all her family and friends will be held this Thursday morning February 4th 10 o’clock ~11 o’clock followed by a Christian Service given by Pastor Hariton.at Eaton & Mackay Funeral Home 465 Centre St. Newton
