WARREN - Mary Limperos, 84, passed from this world into eternal life on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013, at her home.
She was born Feb. 15, 1929, in Warren, the daughter of Anthony and Paraskevi Payiavlas.
She grew up in a very loving and close-knit family, spending her teenage years helping with the family grocery business.
On Jan. 21, 1951, she married the man of her dreams, Richard A. "Dick" Limperos. Together they raised four sons and worked hard at their family business, Tony's Superette.
Family was the cornerstone of life for Mary, and both she and her husband shared in the joy of watching their family grow. She was a devoted mother and became the pinnacle of stability for her family.
Our cherished memories include time spent together over coffee in her kitchen and the simple joy she radiated when she talked about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was a lifelong member of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church.
Left behind to carry on the family legacy are her sons, Anthony (Pam) Limperos, Tom (Mary) Limperos and Bill (Patti) Limperos, all of Warren; 11 grandchildren and their spouses, Dr. Richard (Dr. Maria), Dr. Nick (Tonie), Dr. Anthony M.
