Gary and her late husband, Constantinos owned and operated World Wide Metric Incorporated for many years. They loved to travel the world, especially Greece.

She enjoyed bird watching, especially her hummingbirds. She was a history buff and voracious reader. She also had an opinion or two on a great many topics. She was a fantastic cook and always loved whipping up big, beautiful Sunday dinners for the family. Her specialties included Spanakopita and her famous Yia Yia salad. She treasured time spent with her grandchildren and family.
She was a wonderful, loving and kind person who was like a bubbly bottle of champagne; her glass filled with happiness and she could always make you smile. She will be greatly missed.
