PARASKEVI (VICKY) TRIANTAFYLLOU
Paraskevi (Vicky) Triantafyllou passed away peacefully December 15, 2018, in her home in Upper St Clair with her family by her side. She was eighty-seven years old and lived a full life following the traditions and culture of the Greek Orthodox Church.
Her last name in translation means “thirty leaves of roses,”
and it suited her warm personality. She was born on the island of Spetses, and at the age of fifteen she left to live in Athens. The last twenty-four years of her life were divided between Greece and Pittsburgh; she spent summers in Athens and winters in Pittsburgh. In 2010, she moved to Pittsburgh permanently to live with her children, Costi and Magdalini.
Vicky had a lovely voice and she would entertain at events with friends and family.
In her younger days, Mrs. Triantafyllou worked for Shell Oil Company and was part of the administrative staff of the legal department. A high school graduate and a life-long learner, she had a superior knowledge of finances and could resolve problems presented to her.
Mrs. Triantafyllou is survived by her two children, Costi and Magdalini, a son-in-law, George Paleos, two grandsons, Yanni and Constantinos, and two sisters, Beba and Catherine. She instilled in her children and grandchildren a love for Greek customs and traditions and taught them to “always live an honest life.”
