June 14, 1941 - December 25, 2021
Joan (‘Joanie’) Philippopoulos, 80, born in and a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT, passed away peacefully on December 25, 2021 after a short illness. Joan was the daughter of the late Mary and Christo Maintanis. She was married to (and predeceased by) her husband, James E. Philippopoulos. Joanie’s personality, sense of humor and positive attitude made her a favorite in many circles. She was always concerned about others, willing to help where she could with a smile, laughter and a genuine spirit of kindness. Joanie was an active and lifelong parishioner of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Stamford. From a very early age, she was involved in many of the Church’s ministries including the Bingo, Seniors Group, Ladies Philoptochos Society, Choir and PTA. The Church Bingo was a great accomplishment for her as she, along with her uncle and other key parishioners, started and maintained this key fundraiser for more than two decades. Anyone who knew Joanie, knew that Bingo was an absolute favorite, not only for the game itself but for the friendships she made along the way. She was considered the local expert and was frequently consulted to assist with other area groups to assist in setting up their own Bingo. Singing and dancing were also favorites as well as her zest for life. You could always count on Joanie to set a joyful mood and bring people together at any of the many events she attended –she was one of a kind! Joanie is survived and will be greatly missed by her daughter Angelica Jamie, son Evan and granddaughter, Anastasia, along with her sister, cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly. The burial will be private. If you would like to make a donation in her memory, please consider donating to the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 1230 Newfield Avenue, Stamford, CT 06905 (203) 322-2093.
