It is with great sadness, yet with the hope of the resurrection, that we inform you, that our beloved sister in Christ, Mrs. Fotini Ziogas, has fallen asleep yesterday in the Lord. 

The family will receive friends at Fotini's home, (6061 Rollingreen Drive), this coming Sunday from 5 to 8pm. The traditional viewing will take place this coming Monday, May 23rd, from 11am to 12 noon, at which time the Funeral Service of Mrs. Fotini will start at our Annunciation Church. After the completion of the Funeral Service, the burial of Mrs. Fotini, along with the graveside Trisagion, will be held at the Forsyth Memorial Park Cemetery. It is the will of the family that instead of flowers, donations may be made to our Annunciation Church, or to the Monastery of Panagia Prousiotissa in Troy. May her memory be eternal!
