Colleen Papadakis passed away May 13, 2013 at age 85. Born June 6, 1927 in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada to Meletia and Peter Georgas. She came to Long Beach, California and married her beloved George in 1955. Signal Hill became their home where they raised Lisa, Cristina and Michael. She adored her two grandsons, George and Eli and loved her son-in-law, Falanai and her daughter-in-law, Janel. Colleen's love of culture and her Greek heritage led her to form a Greek folk dance group, "The Olympians," which continues today. Friends delighted in her unaffected charm, infectious smile and her Canadian "Eh." She had a wonderful life and was much loved. Memorial Services are Sunday, May 19th at 7:00 p.m. and the funeral is Monday, May 20th at 11:00 a.m. at the Assumption Church at 5761 E. Colorado Street, Long Beach 90814.
