Georgia Lambrinou, 70, of Nikiti, Halkidiki, Greece, passed away on November 12, 2023.
Georgia was the daughter of the late Asterios and Dialeta Stamatikos. She was married to Mavrothese Lambrinos in the Greek Orthodox Church in Nikiti. Mavrothese died at the age of 49 after a long battle with alcohol abuse.
Georgia is survived by her two daughters, Stella and Christina; a sister Olga; and a brother, Dimitrios. Survivors in the United States include her nephews, Asterios (Laurel) of Carbondale, Illinois and Alexis (Katrina) of Anderson, South Carolina; a sister-in-law, Debra (Richard) Hertenstein of Carthage, Illinois.
Her husband, a brother, John and her sister Artemis predeceased her.
After her husband’s death, she assumed sole responsibility for looking after her elderly in-laws, her two young daughters, her father-in-law’s farms, and her late husband’s business and farms. Georgia did it all with flying colors. Through it all, she remained a devoted grandmother to her three grandchildren. She had the mind of Einstein and the cooking and housekeeping skills of Martha Stewart. Georgia was always singing or humming as she went about her daily tasks. She loved singing and aspired to become a professional singer. Her father disagreed with her wishes and instead arranged for her to marry Mavrothese.
According to Orthodox tradition, she was buried on November 13, 2023.
We will miss her greatly, but we are grateful for her 70 years on this earth.
Memorials may be made in Georgia’s name to the Immanuel Lutheran Church general fund to support kitchen activities.
