Erasmia married in 1952 and moved to Katerini, Greece. She was a custom seamstress and also worked in the family tobacco fields. She and Gregory lived through difficult years of war and famine that struck Greece. It was a hard life and so when the opportunity arose they immigrated to the USA in April 1963. She worked as a seamstress for Baron Peters, and later at Mass General. Upon retirement she made custom drapes, upholstered furniture, and made pet beds for friends. In addition helped with daycare of her grand and great grandchildren. She was an energetic member in the Greek Evangelical Church in Newton along with her husband who was an elder in the church. They visited the sick and assisted with the needs of the congregation. They loved their church family and were loved by many for their open home and hospitality.
A private family gravesite funeral will be held due to current circumstances.
