She was a positive, energetic, fun loving mother, grand-mother and teacher; her three most cherished roles.

After a pause from full-time teaching to raise Charles and Christopher, she was a substitute teacher in Winchester, KY for over two decades where she shared her gift for teaching, encouragement and love for others. Marianthy was a passionate lover of life, family, friends, teachers, children and the Lord. She was a long standing member of the Holy Mother Queen of All Greek Orthodox Church and the Ladies Philoptochos Society (Friends of the Poor) in Lexington, KY.
