December 30, 1952 - August 14, 2013
It is with incredible sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother Stavroula Moschonas. Stavroula passed away peacefully at Langley Memorial Hospital surrounded by all of her family after a long and courageous three year battle with cancer. She was an incredibly strong woman who faced each day with dignity and determination. Predeceased by her parents George and Marina, Stavroula is survived by her devoted husband Peter, her loving children Tina (George Costopoulos), George (Afroditi) and Nikolas (Lisa Mattarollo) and her beloved grandchildren Antonios, Marina and Panayiota as well as her extended family and friends. Born in Lynistaina, Greece, she moved to Canada after marrying Peter in January 1976 and together they opened a business and raised their family. Stavroula always made her family her top priority; she cherished her three children and was the centre of her family, always offering unconditional love, support and understanding. Her three grandchildren were the light of her life and she enjoyed each and every day with them and they, in turn, loved her beyond words. Stavroula will never be forgotten and she will remain in our hearts forever. The family would also like to thank all of the doctors involved in her care and especially the compassionate and caring nurses at Langley Memorial Hospital 4 South who made her last days as comfortable as possible. Prayers will be held on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church 13181 - 96th Avenue, Surrey. Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church 13181 - 96th Avenue, Surrey. Burial to follow at Valley View Memorial Gardens 14644 72nd Avenue, Surrey.
