Sylvia Rodites Georgeadis

Sylvia Georgeadis, 67, of Saratoga Springs, NY passed away at home peacefully, surrounded by her family, on November 8, 2013 after a courageous battle with breast cancer that spanned over the last ten years.  She was able to find the best in every day and was able to thank God for every one she lived.  Sylvia was born on February 5th, 1946 in New Kensington, PA.  She was the daughter of the late Pete and Mary Rodites of New Kensington, Pennsylvania.  Sylvia was the high school sweetheart and wife of Alexander Georgeadis for over 49 years.  Sylvia moved to South Windsor, Connecticut in 1964 where she lived for 40 years.  She was a legal secretary in Hartford, South Windsor and Vernon, Connecticut for several years.  Sylvia also served as president of the South Windsor YW Club where she and her husband enjoyed the many people they met while living there.  In 1985 Sylvia took a job as a guidance secretary at South Windsor High School where she worked until her retirement in 2006.  She so much enjoyed working with the guidance department that was a second family to her.  She loved all the students she was able to help through the years with their college search process.  They loved calling her "Mrs. G." 
Some of Sylvia's favorite pastimes were reading, cooking, and taking college courses at the local community college.  Her best times were those spent with her husband and children by birth and by marriage as well as her six grandchildren.  They were all the joy of her life.  Sylvia loved watching her grandchildren finding joy in the same things she once enjoyed as a child.  She was a long time member of the Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Hartford, CT.  She was also an editor of the church newspaper, "The Saint George Herald," and also the "St. George Consecration Book."  After retiring to Saratoga Springs, NY she became a member of Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in Albany, NY. 
She is survived by husband Alexander,  son,  Nicholas and Amy Georgeadis and a daughter Maria and Josh Muldner -all of New York State.  Besides them, she is also survived by six loving grandchildren: Austin, Alexis, Marina, Juliana, Thomas, and Mitchell.  Sylvia is also survived by a sister Anita and George Burgard of East Pittsburgh, PA. as well as her husband's siblings and their children and grandchildren.

  2. Dear Alex and family,
    It was sad to read of the passing of Mrs. G and her 10 year battle with cancer. We offer our sincere condolences to you and your family and the relatives of Mrs. G.
    In my memory I can still hear her laugh and see her full of life and joy. They are nice memories to have of her. You always were good neighbors to us when we lived in SW and that is because you are good people. I wish you were my neighbor now so I could hug you and express my deep respect and friendship for you.
