MAKRIS, Despina Siaggas, May 17, 1944 - February 5, 2018.

Despina was preceded in death by her parents, Panoyotis and Georgia Siaggas of Milwaukee, WI. Extremely loyal and devoted to the many people she loved, she dedicated her life to the happiness of others. Although sadness consumes family and friends who love and will miss her, we are empowered and comforted by the strength of her character and her vivacious personality and sense of humor that will forever be in our hearts.
