Eleni GONIOTAKIS (Grillakis)


It is with deep sadness and grief that the family announces the peaceful passing surrounded by her family of Eleni GONIOTAKIS (Grillakis)

on May 28, 2024, from Crete (Vrisses) Greece, after a beautiful and full life at the age of 96.

Devoted wife of the late Kanakis Grillakis for 64 years.

Beloved mother to her daughters Alexandra and Erasmia (Louis). Cherished "Yiayia" to her grandchildren John Kanakis and Eleni Violet.

Loving daughter of the late loannis Goniotakis and the late Erasmia Miridakis. Dear sister of the late Chrisoula (Joseph) and the late Elizabeth (late George) and sister-in-law of the late Manousos (loanna) and the late Agiroula (late Markos) and the late George (Christina). Eleni will be fondly remembered by her cousins, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends from Montreal, United States and Greece.

Eleni was the heart and soul of our family whose endless love will live on forever in our hearts. Mama mou, Yiayia mou, we will always be as your heart desired together as one "mazi, mazi"

"What is love? It is not simply compassion, not simply kindness. In compassion there are two: the one who suffers and the one who feels

compassion. In kindness there are two: the one who gives and the one who receives. But in love there is only one; the two join, unite, become

inseparable. The 'I' and the

'you' vanish. To love means to lose oneself in the beloved."


— Nikos Kazantzakis
