An active member of the Athena Chapter of the Philoptochos Society, she was honored as Mother of the Year in 1983, was an active participant in the annual Greek Bazaar, now called the Greek Food Festival, and was a well recognized, aggressive fund raiser for Church sponsored activities.
Mrs. Andros and her husband traveled frequently to their native Greece as well as Europe and the Middle East.
The family of Mrs. Andros wishes to thank those wonderful attendants and management at her assisted living home at Fairwinds Woodward Park, her personal care giver, Shelisia Wiley, those fine folks at Maxim Healthcare and the Aseracare Hospice organization and those wonderful friends and family who sought her friendship and attention.
She is survived by daughter, Dorothea Gianopulos and her husband George; her son, George Andros and his wife Alysa, and daughter Paige; grandchildren, Tom Gianopulos and his wife Kathleen, Dan Gianopulos and his wife Rochelle, Lisa Andros, and Danny Andros and four great-grandchildren, Phillip, Theresa, Michelle and Daniel Gianopulos.
