She was born April 18, 1928 in Keene, New Hampshire. Anna was the daughter of Georgia Pantelis Giannakopoulos and George Louis Libbares. She graduated from Keene High School in 1946.
Anna grew up in the Saint George Greek Orthodox Church community and remained devoted in her faith throughout the duration of her life. The Greek community, and Saint George especially, were members of her extended family. She participated fully in the life of the Church, attending Greek school, singing in the choir, and serving as a member of the Elpis Ladies’ Aid Society.
On July 29, 1956, she married the love of her life, Chris John Tasoulas, a boy she had known since childhood. Anna was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend. She encouraged and supported her family in every way possible, ever reminding them that they are “strong Spartans”! Her kind and generous spirit touched the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to have known her.
She is forever remembered by her loving husband of 57 years, Chris; her children and their spouses, Maria E. T. and Peter D. Bradshaw, Georgia A. L. Tasoulas, John C. and Roe-Ann Tasoulas; her grandchildren, Sarah E. and Anna P. Bradshaw, Piper R. A. and Mack C. Tasoulas; sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Peter Gochis; sisters-in-law, Christene Libbares and Patricia T. Blastos; many nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.
Our sincere sympathy goes out to the Bradshaw and Tasoulas families.
