SPERDAKOS, Angeline (a.k.a. Coula LUCAS)
Passed away peacefully on February 10, 2006. Born in Montreal on March 6, 1920, Coula was the beloved sister of Helen (Eleni) LIASKOS, Mariya CHRISTIDIS and the late Dean and George SPERDAKOS. She will be forever cherished by her adoring nieces Anastasia (Tassie) CAMERON and Diane GOUZOPOULOS, Paula and Sophia SPERDAKOS, Aurora, Ophelia, Thalia CHRISTIDIS and nephew Alexander CHRISIDIS. Coula was loved by her great-nieces and great-nephews who enjoyed her unique spirit and interest in them. She is also survived by her son George TRAKAS and granddaughter Maggie TRAKAS and nieces and nephew. Coula was a wonderful woman, who brought love and joy to anyone lucky enough to spend time with her. Her sister, Eleni, knew that better than anyone, and enjoyed a special relationship with her. Their bonds were not inspired by blood alone. They loved each other's company and were simply the best of Friends. They were devoted to each other always. People were easily touched by Coula's nurturing warmth, impeccable taste and fine beauty. Her cooking was delicious enough to feed the gods and she graciously and generously shared it with many. Her nature was to heal and love people whom she met. She was an attentive listener who offered guidance without judgment, commiserating with sorrows, diffusing anger and softening the blows of disappointments. Time spent with beautiful Coula inevitably left one bolstered with confidence to move forward. Students at McGill University still remember her kind and caring ways 30 years after she was a student advisor there. Those of us who loved her are blessed with incredible memories of time spent in her company. Coula, you will be remembered, missed and forever in our hearts.
