Georgia was born in Athens, Greece and immigrated with her family to America in 1966. She grew up in the Greater Boston area and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science from Boston University in 1981. She started her career in Advertising, before marrying her husband and starting a family. Georgia returned to work as a computer teacher in the Parochial school system to pursue her passion in helping others. She would go on to teach for up to 20 years, and most recently earned the Ecumenical Athletic Association’s, “Teacher of the Year Award” for her work at Immaculate Conception School in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Along with her interest in helping others, Georgia found great passion in the Arts, regularly visiting art museums, collecting works during her travels, and even bringing her passion to life by creating her own works of art right at home.
Georgia was a loving mother, daughter, sister, godmother, aunt, cousin, and friend who would always open her home and heart to her friends and family. Remembered as “Mrs. K” by her students, she exhibited compassion, devotion, and genuine care for their development and well-being.
In honor of her life’s work and in lieu of flowers, her family requests a donation in her name be made to Immaculate Conception School, 218 E Merrimack Street, Lowell, Massachusetts, 01852.
