PRICE- Our loving daughter, sister, and close friend, Athena Kavros, age 68, passed away peacefully June 23, 2008 in Provo. She was born Feb. 15, 1940 in Volos, Greece to Lambros and Maria A. Angelides Stamoulis. Married Chris Kavros Jan. 4, 1975 in Washington, D.C. He died July 26, 2003.
Athena was one of the very best Greek cooks and a wonderful and kind neighbor and friend. She worked as a nanny for many years on the East Coast, and was a surrogate mother to many needy souls. She enjoyed being an advocate for Active Re-entry, and was a National Institute of Health contact.
Athena had friends world wide. She always thought of others especially around Christmas and Easter. She had a great love for gardening and had her garden full of tulips, peonies, a fig tree, and now roses. Her cozy home is filled with the scent of hundreds of roses.
Athena was an active member of the Carbon County Historical Society and donated artifacts of her husband Chris to the Helper Mining and Railroad Museum. Chris is memorialized as a Cretan American WWII Veteran who fought in Korea. He was a Mason and worked in the coal mines and with the railroad. She loved cooking and took a cooking class offered at the Carbon County Food Bank.
Athena was an active member of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church. She sang in the choir and always assisted with the festival preparations each year. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Aionia I mnimi aftou! May her memory be eternal.
Survived by her mother, Maria Stamoulis, Volos, Greece; two brothers, Greg Stamoulis, New York, N.Y.; Periklis Stamoulis, Volos, Greece; three sisters, Helen Fania, Volos, Greece; Effie Stamoulis, and Elpis Sakaria, both of Beltsville, Md.; eight nieces and nephews, and her close friends that cared for her over the years.
Preceded in death by her husband, Chris, and her father Lambros.
