Sophie Christodoulou



Sophie Christodoulou of Warwick, NY (formerly of Flushing, NY) passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side on May 22, 2023. She was 91 years old.


Born in Athens, Greece on March 9, 1932, she was the daughter of Menelaos and Evangelia (Chiarbos) Tavlakis.


Sophie had many passions; she owned her own business as a tailor and fur finisher, working along with her husband for many years. She was known for her exceptional cooking and baking, which brought her great joy to share her delicious food with the world. 


Sophie will always be remembered for treating everyone with kindness and unconditional love. She was a faithful woman who prayed for everyone around her- family, friends, and strangers. She was a beloved mother, devoted grandmother, adoring mother-in-law, and caring friend to all. 


Sophie is survived by her daughter Christine Skouloudis and her husband Emanuel; grandchildren: Angela, Kostas, Sophia and Yianni Skouloudis; Yianni Amvrosiatos and his wife Ruth and Sophia Amvrosiatos; father of her grandchildren, Angelo Amvrostiatos; and many relatives and close friends here in the United States and in Greece. She was predeceased by her husband John Christodoulou and daughter Katherine Evangeline Christodoulou.


She is deeply loved and will be missed by all.
