ClaraNikon-2013On August 1, Clara Nicon, at the age of 99, peacefully fell asleep in the Lord.

Clara loved both her family and Greek Orthodox Faith. She always had a positive disposition, and sought to reflect, on any challenge, the good that could come out of it. She was strong in her faith which was the foundation of her life.

As such, she was a strong supporter of the Church, and specifically the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption in Seattle, Washington, supporting the parish with her time, talents and treasures in many various ways. And most recently, she offered a beautiful bequest to the parish which will always be cherished in her memory. She was also a long-time steward of our St. George Greek Orthodox Church.

In support of the Archdiocese, she was a member of Leadership 100. At 97, she was believed to be the oldest serving Parish Council member in the Archdiocese. Her love for Philoptochos also manifested itself in years of service and support. When she could, she attended every Sunday Liturgy. She is a beautiful example of faith, love, and inspiration to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed.

Clara was preceded in death by her husband, Spiro in 1994 after 60 years of marriage. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, John and Joann Nicon and by her daughter and son-in-law, Presbytera Faye and Fr. Theodore. She is also survived by six grandchildren, including Vasiliki Moore, and nine great grandchildren.

Sincere condolences to the Nicon, Stylianopoulos, and Moore families at the passing of their beloved mother and Yiayia.

May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ continue to bestow upon His servant Clara His most abundant blessings. May her memory be eternal!

In lieu of flowers remembrances may be made to the Church of the Assumption building fund (1804 13th Avenue, Seattle, Washington 98122), the International Orthodox Christian Charities/IOCC (110 West Road, Suite 360, Baltimore, Maryland 21204), or to a charity of choice.

Taken from a letter from Fr. Dean Kouldukis of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption, Seattle, Washington.
