AUSTINTOWN - Ann Mavrigan Farmakis passed away peacefully on Friday, Jan. 23, 2015.
Born in Youngstown on June 6, 1925, Ann was 89 years old, and thus leaves behind a rich history and a bold legacy. She was the daughter of Andrew and Sophia Mavrigan.
Without question, Ann lived a life of absolute humility, humbleness, kindness, joy, and love. After marrying the love of her life, James George Farmakis, in 1946, Ann was a dedicated, loyal, and loving wife to her husband during all of their 67 years of marriage. During such time, Ann blessed the world with four children. She dedicated herself both to her children and later to her grandchildren, in not only caring for them, but also in loving them unconditionally and raising them to become amazing people. At the same time, she also taught all of us the meaning of hard work and loyalty as she held various jobs, and was ultimately an employee of Gorant Candies for more than 30 years.
As she was the daughter of Greek immigrants, Ann always remembered her Greek heritage, and she never forgot to teach her own sons, daughter, grandsons, and granddaughters what it means to be Greek. Not only did she help teach the language to her family, but also on any given day her house was filled with the sweet aromas of the best tasting Greek dishes and pastries.
Among the many things that Ann taught to all of us, were her immense kindness, gentleness, generosity, joy, and love, which she displayed toward so many people in her life, both family, friends, and strangers alike. Her amazingly beautiful and huge heart of love truly changed lives and bettered the future for a vast number of people.
Perhaps most importantly, Ann was a woman of God, and a member of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Youngstown. She was a believer in Jesus Christ, and in abundant ways, she blessed and showed a true love to so many people in her life. Furthermore, because of her faith in Jesus as her Lord and Savior, great peace is taken in the fact that she forevermore resides in Gods kingdom of Heaven.
Ann will be greatly missed by her children, James (Judith) Farmakis of Canfield, Renee (Bruce) Miller of Hubbard, Steve (Stephanie) Farmakis of Chino Hills, California, and George (Carrie) Farmakis of Frisco, Texas; seven grandchildren, Ashley, Cassondra, Tyler, Christopher (Jomara) Farmakis, Alexandra, Lauren, and William James; her siblings; and numerous nieces and nephews.
As one of the few remaining members of Americas Greatest Generation, Ann lived a life full of honor, loyalty, love, fortitude, and faith. As she goes now to be immersed in Gods amazing love forever, Ann will never be forgotten by many people, and we will always be immensely proud to call her our mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. For all that she did for us, we would like to emphasize the profound gratitude that all of us have for her. This gratitude, as well as her deep legacy and unforgettable spirit, will always remain within our hearts and memories.
SaV eucarist? pol?, SaV agap? me pol?! God bless you forever Nana! We will always love you so much!
In honoring Anns wishes, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Angels for Animals in Canfield.
