Sophie is also survived by 24 great grandchildren, and proudly became a Great, Great Grandmother in 2018. Sophie & a sister moved to New York in 1940. Sophie met and married the love of her life in none other than a Greek restaurant in New York City. The moved from the City to Upstate New York to embark on real estate and the specialty poultry industry. Shortly after, they changed locations and each of their lovely homesteads proudly remain as Temple Beth Sholom, and the Archdiocese of St. Francis of Assisi in New York. They moved to Central Florida in real estate, construction and the orange grove industry and later to the Indian River area of Fort Pierce, Florida to more real estate & orange grove opportunities. Following her husband’s death, she moved to Northern California to reside with Mary and John, then to Martinsville in 2005. She loved being part of the community and enjoyed meeting many wonderful people. The area reminded her of her childhood in Pennsylvania and the familiarity of scenery and seasons of Upstate New York. Despite her busy life, she always honored God, volunteered for many charities and throughout her long life, dedication to family and friends never waned. Instead of embracing technology, she chose to be very well read, enjoyed politics and most of all, never failed to write letters and cards, never missing a birthday or anniversary. She enjoyed hand writing personal notes and cards to each family member or friend including a very long list each Christmas. Sophie was laid to rest with her beloved husband in Fort Pierce, Florida. There will be no services. Her smiling face, warmest of hugs and kind heart will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Her heartfelt desire is for all to turn their hearts and eyes to God in Heaven with an eternal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Sophie S Tzimenatos June 4 1922 July 11 2019.
