Obituary of Georgoula Erodotou
It is with extraordinary sadness that we announce the passing of the matriarch of our family. The world has lost a beautiful soul and our lives will never be the same. Georgoula ‘Georgia’ Erodotou was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world suddenly on March 3, 2021 at the age of 73. She was born to Costadinos and Theodora Aristidou on May 10, 1947 in Limassol, Cyprus.
At the age of 24, she married her beloved husband Christodoulos ‘Chris’ Erodotou and emigrated to Toronto. This summer they would have celebrated 50 years of marriage. Together, they had 2 children: Chrisa (husband Kirk) and Dino (wife Maria). Georgia was also the very proud grandmother of eight beautiful grandchildren, Christian, Lucas, Cyrus, Gia,(Chrisa) Demetri, Elaina, Anthony and Angelica (Dino). All of her grandchildren adored her as she always took time to not only care for them but play and engage with them. Georgia was a dedicated employee at Trench Electric for many years. Her work ethic and energy was a force to be reckoned with both at work and in the vegetable garden. When everyone else had called it a day, Georgia was still working hard.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Georgia. She loved to watch the birds and squirrels at the cottage, delighting in their play. Georgia also loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family. This was where she shone the brightest. Georgia loved to garden, read and search the beach for treasures. Her kindness, sincerity, and honesty shone from her heart like a beacon of light. She loved to laugh and always made those around her feel special and deeply loved. She will be profoundly missed. We will cherish our memories of her forever.
Besides her children, grandchildren and husband, Georgia is survived by her sisters Mauro (Kyriakos), Eleni (Stelios), Vathoula and her many beloved nieces and nephews.
A funeral will be held on Monday, March 8th at 11 a.m. at Evangelismos, Saints Nectarios and Gerasimos Greek Orthodox Church at 399 Farewell Street Oshawa. Burial services will follow at Thornton Cemetery at 1200 Thornton Road North.
