Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Ismene Anastasia Valescu announces her passing on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at the age of 87. Born Ismene Koutris in Chicago, Illinois on November 17, 1931, she moved to San Antonio, Texas with her mother in 1948. Ismene married Andrew T. Valescu in 1973 and they were blessed with a daughter, Smaranda Crystally late in life.

Ismene was a long-time parishioner of St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church where she had been active in the choir and Daughters of Penelope for many years. In her later years, Ismene joined the community of St. Ephraim Orthodox Church where she attended services every Sunday. She felt blessed to have the support from her Church community, family, and especially her dear friends and caretakers. In her final few years, she became a master at solving complex Sudoku puzzles.

Ismene was preceded in death by her husband, Andrew T. Valescu; her parents, George and Crystally Koutris, and her sisters, Catherine and Aspasia. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Smaranda and Nick Papanikolaou; grandchildren, Yannis and Anastasia Papanikolaou; sister, Hypatia Mozakis; and nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Friday, May 31, 2019 in the chapel at Porter Loring on McCullough.
