Dina Kouvaris (Lampiris) of Osterville passed away peacefully on January 9, 2018. She was a devoted and loving wife to the late Peter Kouvaris and a wonderful mother to Chrissoula Hagigeorges and her husband John, Louis Kouvaris and Demos Kouvaris. Beloved grandmother to Dina and Theo Hagigeorges, Peter, Carly, Alexa, Chloe and Niko Kouvaris and Lauren Whitney. Her family and grandchildren meant the world to her. She was a loving sister to Mary Papas and Bill Lampiris and to her deceased siblings Vala, Dino, Bill, Dimitriios (Mimi) and Nick. She cherished and deeply valued her relationships with her in-laws, godchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends. Dina spent her formative years in Patras, Greece. In 1956, she settled in New York and married Peter. In 1967, Peter and Dina moved their family to South Yarmouth, MA. She loved life on the Cape.
Dina took great pride in everything that she did. She was an amazing homemaker, an outstanding cook and an avid gardener. It brought her great joy to have family, friends, neighbors and sometimes strangers in her home to enjoy a few drinks and the dishes she so lovingly prepared.
Over the years, Dina worked in the cafeterias of both the South Yarmouth Elementary School and Cape Cod Community College. She loved connecting with students, faculty and co-workers while sharing her culinary gifts. She also spent many summers working at the Yarmouth Seaside Village.
Dina was a devout member of The St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Centerville, where she made lifelong friends, whom she adored. She rarely missed a Sunday service, or a Tuesday game of bingo. She was also a member of the Greek Ladies Philoptochos Society and Daughters of Penelope.
Dina and her family are incredibly grateful and appreciative for the loving and ongoing support services which she received from Coastal Medical Transportation Services, The Pavillion and The McCarthy Care Center.
