Mary Papademetriou, 72

Mary Papademetriou, 72, of Lancaster, passed away Saturday, November 5, 2011 at Lancaster General Hospital with her brother Gus at her side. Born in Englewood, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Theodore Papademetriou and Cleo Pappas.

A special thank you to her first cousins Barbara and Nena Valavanes and Andy and Gus Karpouzis for all their love and support during all her difficult years.

Condolences to Barbara from Jeffrey Sipe (Laundry Dept. at Lancaster General Hospital)

At first I was saddened to find out that Aunt Mary has passed.  But then I realized that now she is happy and healthy in heaven.  She always had a lively spirit.  I hope that in heaven she gets to do everything that she was unable to do while she was here on earth. 
Lots of love to you, Aunt Mary.
