KIRKOPOULOS, Agapi - January 5, 1939 - January 3, 2013 Early Thursday morning our mom Agapi passed away. She was at peace surrounded by her family at her long term care home. Our mom struggled for several years with Lewy Body Dementia that slowly took her away from us. Lewy Body is a progressive brain disease characterized by loss of memory, physical function and hallucinations. Agapi leaves behind her husband Nick and her three children Tom (Kymberly), Chris (Joanna) and Mary as well as five grandchildren: Marah, Bolton, Nikala, Kolé and Rea. Agapi's greatest love was her children and her grandchildren nothing was a close second. Agapi spent countless hours playing with her grandchildren and making them things like Macedonian Tearleatsi (slippers). She was born in a little farming town of Zaberdini in Northern Greece and ventured to Canada in the mid to late 60s. Agapi crossed the Atlantic by boat landing in Halifax and then by train to Toronto where she reunited with her soon to be husband Nick. Agapi was mostly a homemaker described by many with a dry sense of humour and a quick response to any criticism. Our mom was always positive and a beautiful lady. She will be greatly missed and always loved. A visitation will be held at MCDougall and Brown Funeral Home Scarborough Chapel, 2900 Kingston Road, on Friday, January 4th from 4 - 9 p.m. A funeral service will be held in the chapel on Saturday, January 5th at 11 a.m. Burial to follow at Pine Hills Cemetery.
