We were informed a few hours ago that my mother-in-law Antonia Liacopoulou, passed away peacefully today 28th January 2012. She was born on 8th October 1913 and gave birth to four daughters and he youngest child was my husband, She had 10 grand children and seven great grand children.
Although over ninety eight years old, until recently she had a sharp mind and until the day she died she knew who we were and she could walk with the help of her walking support device to the bathroom or come down three steps from her bedroom to the living room. The last time we visited her early in January, although she did not get out of bed she still recognized us. We were recently informed that she had breathing problems and the oxygen in her blood was very low. The doctor diagnozed that it was the last stage and we were expecting it.
She was a wonderful and kind person and was like a mother to me. She took care of me during my pregancies when the doctor ordered that I had to come to Athens and stay in bed until I gave birth, after two miscarriages.
May God rest her soul. We will miss her a lot. She will now be reunited with her beloved husband who passed away thirty years ago.
