Sophia Backos Obituary
SALAMANCA - Sophia Backos, age 97, formerly of Allegany, died early Monday evening (Oct. 8, 2018) at the Salamanca Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Born Sept. 22, 1921, in Chicago, Ill., she was the daughter of the late Nicholas and Demetria Bai Kunigaris.

She was an accomplished pianist and dress designer. Her passion was health and healing. Sophia was also known and loved for her sense of humor and the ability to stretch a nickel into $500. She was adored by everyone who knew her, especially her daughter.

Surviving are a daughter, Sharon Backos of Allegany; her half-sister, Pamela Backos of St. Clair Shores Mich.; and a granddaughter, Dylaina (Shawn Mott) Young of Rochester.

There will be no visitation. A Celebration of Life will be held at the convenience of the family.
