Born in Boston in 1926 to Peloponnesian (Greek) parents, she moved back to Greece in 1932 with her family, only to flee impending war in 1939. A devout Greek Orthodox Christian and a fiercely independent woman, who defied contemporary norms by earning a bachelor's degree from the State College of Boston and worked as: a journalist (Hellenic Chronicle), a Phys Ed. teacher (Boston and Stoughton public schools), and a lab technician (Tracerlab and Polaroid). Mrs. Triantafyllos imparted her faith and independent mindset to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who will miss her terribly. Beloved wife of the late Terry Triantafyllos, and dear mother of Ellen Gyftopoulos Sdrollas of Boston, Demetra Papas of Billerica, and the late Sophia Triantafyllos Moore. Loving grandmother of Maria Turcios, Alexandra, Nicholas, Stephanie and Victoria Papas, Marielle Moore, Magdalena Gyftopoulos, Costantino Sdrollas, and Terrence Moore. Proud great-grandmother of Peter and Anthony Turcios. Visiting hours Tuesday from 4-8 pm at the Folsom Funeral Home, 63 Belgrade Ave, Roslindale. Relatives and friends are invited to gather at the funeral home Wed. starting at 8:30 am and proceed with us to the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 514 Parker St, Boston for her funeral at 10 o'clock.
