Sophia Damiani

July 12, 1936 - July 9, 2019

On July 9, 2019, Mrs. Sophia Damiani of Kavala, Greece and Portland, OR fell asleep eternally in the comfort of our Lord witnessed by the presence of her true love, her family and friends.

Sophia was born on July 12, 1936, to her mother who unfortunately passed away soon after.  She was raised by her grandmothers.  On June 17, 1962, she married Anthony “Tony” Damiani of Steubenville, OH.

Sophia is preceded in death by her loving husband Tony in 1986, her oldest daughter Kathryn Lynn Harris (née Damiani) in 2017, and her oldest granddaughter Victoria at birth.

Sophia is survived by her son Dominick Anthony Damiani and Stefanie Damiani Stavrakas, children’s spouses (Dirk Harris, Dawn Damiani, and Vasilios Stavrakas), grandchildren (Ryan, Alexa, Sophia, Lyndsey, Judith, Olivia and Demetrios), and many loving family and friends throughout USA and Greece.

She served her parish as a devoted Greek Orthodox Christian for 57 years, inspiring her husband, family, friends and many communities where she lived and visited.

Her legacy continues for helping many people, demonstrating her unconditional love for humanity and our Lord.

The viewing and funeral services are being held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral at 3131 NE Glisan Street, Portland, OR 97232 at 9 a.m. on July 24, 2019.

The funeral service begins at 10 a.m. .  At 1 p.m., she will be placed to final rest at Willamette National Cemetery, reunited with Tony.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to her favorite charity, the Philoptochos Emergency Assistance Fund.  Donations may be mailed to the cathedral’s address.
