August 9, 1926 – February 5, 2021
Valerie ( Vasiliki) Apostolicas, long-time resident of Nashua and local realtor, passed away peacefully in her home with family. She was 94.
Born on August 9, 1926 in Lowell, Mass., she was the daughter of George and Eleni Giatas, both of whom emigrated from Kalabaka Greece. Many generations of the family lived at the base of the Meteora, now a World Heritage Site.
She attended Boston University and graduated from the Katherine Dell School.
She was predeceased by her husband Paul in 1990 and her sister Elizabeth in 1996.
She is survived by her three sons, George, William, and Peter, along with the five grandchildren whom she adored and nurtured.
Once finished raising and educating her three sons, she re-established a successful real estate business in Nashua under the name of Dutton Realty, started first by her father in 1915. She took particular pleasure in finding the right residences for young families looking for their first homes. In recent years she enjoyed re-reading the letters to her from those she helped to find their ideal long-term homes in which their families were raised.
She was a member of St Phillip’s Greek Orthodox Church in Nashua as well as the Agape Society, which supported the church and related charities. She was proud of her family’s Greek heritage and helped the church continue the Hellenic traditions through all her active years.
Her extended family includes the wonderful caregivers, Wanda, Rhonda, Simran, Pat, Katie, and Maria, who in recent years provided unparalleled care, as well as enjoying her company and the home where she lived for more than 70 years.
Services will be private amid corona virus concerns. Zis-Sweeney will handle funeral preparations.
Gifts in her memory can be made to St Phillips Greek Orthodox Church in Nashua.
