I have many fond memories of my dearest cousin “Anna”…above all was her smile and her humor! We always looked forward to being with this family and considered them more like brothers and sisters growing up in Bellaire, Ohio. Her mom was my grandmother’s sister. My grandmother died at childbirth delivering twin boys and I never got to know her but my “Thea Marouli” was the grandmother I never knew” I love this family — each and every one — so sorry for your loss of a beautiful Mom, Grandmother, Sister….Forever in my heart….Love, Georgia Nicholas-Zavolas

Lovely tribute video of your Mom and family. My Mom always considered Anna a good friend and still talks about the recipes she shared with her! God Bless you and your family with these memories for the future!

So very sorry to hear of Anna’s passing, she knew me since I was born, a beautiful, kind woman, who always made time for a little kid like me, May Our Lord comfort you and all the family, my love and prayers to all of you.
