Fifi (Zographia) Lambros, age 94, passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on Sunday, September 6, 2020. She was born July 29, 1926 in Greece to Kalliope and Emmanuel Mavroleon. She was the youngest of five children. Fifi immigrated on Valentine’s Day 1949 and settled in Greenville, Pennsylvania with her eldest sister, Mary Economy. On June 22, 1952 she married the love of her life, Lambros Lambros. They were married thirty-one years until his death on March 23, 1984. Fifi lived life to the fullest and had a passion for gardening, cooking home-made Greek meals, baking, and entertaining family and friends. She had a reputation for making the best baklava made with honey rather than sugar water. She constantly reminded us that her baklava could not be beaten and she was right.

She was a woman of deep faith who enjoyed going to church as well as driving her friends to Sunday services. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she always commented that she had the best daughters who then produced the best grandchildren.

She is survived by her two daughters Clara and her husband John, Fay and her husband Peter, as well as her four grandchildren Stephan and his wife Allyson, Alexander and his wife Linda, Christine and her fiancé Michael, and Ashley and her fiancé Caleb.  Due to   COVID- 19 a private church service will be held at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, Whitestone, NY. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her name to the American Heart Association.
