Catherine “Katina” Kay Tsiandos
It is with broken hearts and loving memories that we announce the passing of our mother Catherine (Katina) Kay Tsiandos on September 27, 2023 at the age of 83 in Edmonton, Alberta. Kay was born in Athens, Greece on September 12, 1940. She will be forever loved and missed by her children Lambros, Evyenia Jenny and son-in-law Bernie, sister-in-law Georgina, granddaughters Christina, Marissa (Dan) and Katina, as well as her two great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. She was predeceased by her parents Lampros and Vasiliki, husband Theodore and brother George.
Kay had a distinguished career working as a Canadian Customs Inspector for the Federal Government. For nearly all of her adult life, she generously donated her time volunteering for the Greek Orthodox Church and Community of Edmonton and has been a staple in the Greek community since she first arrived in Canada. Kay was also a proud member of several other organizations in the community such as The Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, The Golden Age Society, The Ladies of Hestia and Second Wind Dreams, to name a few. Kay’s faith in the Greek Orthodox religion was unwavering and was of great comfort to her in her final days.
The prayer service will be held on Monday October 2, 2023 6:00 p.m. at Trinity Funeral Home 10530-116 St. Edmonton, AB. The funeral service will be held Tuesday October 3, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church 10831-124 St. NW Edmonton, AB with the internment to immediately follow the funeral service at Westlawn Cemetery.
