Age 88, passed away in her sleep on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. Born on June 21, 1931, in Pelham Bay, New York. Beloved wife of the late Konstantinos Lardas; loving mother of Nicholas (Rita) Lardas, George (Patty), and Stephan (Lisa) Lardas; dear sister of the late Steve Lacios; loving grandmother of Sophia, Alexa, Callie, Rainia, Gussie and George; loving great-grandmother of Leo, Nico and Oscar. She married Konstantinos on June 9, 1951, and traveled with the extended family to Icaria for her honeymoon. She often said the rest of her life was like a dream. Sofia was very strong-willed and unflinchingly honest. You could count on her to always tell it like it was. But she was also loving, caring and nurturing, especially to those that needed it most. She always encouraged our creative, artistic efforts. She taught us how to treat others, to be honest, to do more than just what was expected and to be loving. A burial service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, November 23, 2019, at Homewood Cemetery. A luncheon will follow at the small banquet hall at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 419 Dithridge St., Pgh., PA 15213. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Konstantinos Lardas Scholarship Fund, in care of the Pan Icarian Foundation of America, PO Box 79037, Pgh., PA, 15216-0037.
