<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Margarita Kougioumtzis (nee: Vergas) who died peacefully the morning of May 28th, 2016, at the age of 82. She was the loving wife of the late, Themistoklis, and a loving mother to Julie (Mathieu) and grandmother to Gabriel and Erika. She is predeceased by her siblings Stella, Niki and Dimosthenis and parents, Anna and Evangelos. Margarita shared a special bond as an aunt to John (Letta), Steve (Rose) and Rula (Tony) amongst her many other nephews and nieces. <br> <br>Margarita was born in small village in Northern Greece - Vevi, Florina - on May 15,1934. She took great pride in her birthplace and reminisced frequently about all the fond memories she shared with so many friends and family. In search of a better life, her journey brought her to Canada in the late 1960's where she experienced many hardships as she attempted to establish herself in a foreign country with very little financial or emotional support. Despite the challenges however, she persevered and met Themis in 1970 and they were married shortly after. The two shared a loving bond that later brought them their one and only daughter, Julie. She was truly their pride and joy and gave Margarita greater purpose as she embraced motherhood with devotion to her family. <br> <br>For anyone that crossed paths with Margarita it was inevitable that they would always be welcomed with a smile and a witty remark or two! She was a genuine person with a heart of gold. She loved whole heartedly, brought laughter to her world, and showed compassion for those she cared about. Margarita was diagnosed with dementia 8 years ago and despite the hardships that the disease brought on she still remained the fun-loving, beautiful and strong woman she always was. Her love and respect for her relatives never waivered and at almost every visit she would ask about each of every one of them. <br> <br>Today we have said good bye to this truly amazing woman, from this world, but we know that this is not the end...we will meet you again, dear mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. May your memory live on eternally, Margarita. <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br></div>
