Olga Sharos Obituary
Olga Sharos

Olga (nee Kefalas) Sharos, 94, was born August 10, 1924, to Panayoti (Peter) and Metaxia Kefalas in Stallings, Illinois. She fell asleep to the Lord on September 10, 2018.

Olga started her career at the Army Depot in Granite City, and then went to the Food and Drug Administration in St Louis, MO. She retired from her career of over 32 years as a radiologist secretary at Scott Air Force Base.

After retirement Olga traveled the world with cousins and many friends. Greece was one of her favorite places, where she lived for almost two years as a young child. She volunteered at the Holy Cross Lutheran Church School as a librarian for many years. She was a woman of faith, having a resilient devotion to the orthodox religion. She attended Sts. Constantine and Helen Church in Swansea, IL, where she also was a member of the ladies' society (Philoptochos) and a president for many years. She was very devoted to her family, friends, and enjoyed watching her favorite baseball team, the St Louis Cardinals. She will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents; her son, Pete; her husband, William "Bill" Sharos; her brother, George Kefalas; her sister, Frances Glastras; her daughter-in-law, Sherry Sharos; and her son-in-law, John Welsh.

Surviving are her five children, Mitzie Welsh, Jim Sharos, George (Patty) Sharos, Gus (Stacy) Sharos, and Frany Sharos; 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; many dear nieces and nephews; three godchildren; and a number of cherished relatives and friends.
