Anna Psilos, 101, missionary who manifested grace and compassion

Anna Psilos

WILMINGTON — The gates of heaven opened for Anna Psilos, 101, Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020, and she went home to meet the Lord.

She spent most of her life dedicated to serving Jesus, and she did it with endless grace and love. She led hundreds of people to the Lord through prayer and always encouraged everyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus. She was a good and faithful servant who always wore the most genuine smile.

Anna was born Dec. 10, 1918, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She married the love of her life, Constantine Psilos, in 1944; together, they had two sons, Nicholas and John. Anna was a true matriarch, mother superior, BAA, Yiayia Anna, the Queen. She lived life to the fullest serving Jesus and encouraging love and grace to all. She often accompanied her husband who was a shipping boat captain; together, they traveled the world. She spent time in China and the Philippines doing missionary work, which was very close to her heart.

Anna was preceded in death by her husband; son, Nicholas; parents; and siblings. She is survived by her son, John A. Psilos and Cathy Psilos; nine grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A lady who lived with elegance, compassion and spiritual love for everyone she met, she will be dearly missed. Whenever asked, “How are you?” Anna always answered, without hesitation, “On top of the world.” She truly is on top of the world now.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 608 S. College Road, followed by a graveside service at Oleander Gardens.

Everlasting be her memory! Memory eternal!
