Grace (Gramatiki) Georgia Glaros passed away peacefully at home on June 20th in Boca Raton, FL, at the age of 97, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Pittsburgh, PA on October 10, 1916 to George and Anna Kratsas, both immigrants from Ikaria, Greece, and the oldest of four siblings. Married to the late Emmanuel "Mike" Glaros on August 13, 1938, for almost 65 years. She is survived by her youngest brother Perry Kratsas, her two children, Nick Glaros and Georgia Placas, their spouses Katina Glaros and Gregg Placas, and her six granddaughters and her eleven great grandchildren. Amazing Grace -- a name never fit a person more truly -- will be remembered for the warm hospitality expressed in her open arms and open home, where strangers were treated like family and all were fed past full. She was a poet, a painter, and an active force in her church community at the Dormition of the Theotokos church in Oakmont, PA, and St. Marks in Boca Raton, FL. Her marriage to Mike was the living example of the relationship all of us strive for, and she goes now to be with him again. Grace lived a life serving others within her family and community. She also quietly sponsored children for years and believed strongly in caring for those born into less fortunate circumstances. We hope her love and compassion will continue to inspire others to spread God's love by participating in a work that helps those in need.
