Emilia Faith Patides, born July 15, 2016, received her angel wings on December 16. 2016 following many medical complications.
Throughout Emilia's short, life she has touched the hearts, and influenced the lives of many who had followed her journey.
Her gentle smile could light up a room, and her voice would brighten a day. Emilia possessed a certain kind of strength, perseverance, and ability to over come all odds. With her courage, she led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories.
She could spend hours being rocked and cuddled close. She enjoyed music and being read to.
Emilia is survived in death by her loving parents Peter and Tiffany Patides, Grandparents; Bill and Melinda Patides, Derek and Holly Sheppard, and Todd Geller, Great Grandparents; Vincent and Karen Strain, Eleni Patides, Herbert and Patricia Sickler, Donna Geller and Alice Sheppard. Aunts and Uncles; Lani, Lexi (Godmother), Anastasia, Gregory, and Dimitri Patides, Miranda and Dominik Detzel, and Ashlee Geller (Brylee), Rousso Kanaris (Godfather) and many more.
Services are open to the public, and will be held on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church in Lecanto, FL. Viewing will begin at noon with services beginning at 1pm. Her burial will be held at Stage Stand Cemetery at 2:30.
Although we will miss Emilia everyday, with her passing, we remind others that her life is to be celebrated, and we request that color be worn to her memorial.
