Angela Hapgood nee Kotoulia, age 94, of Phoenix Arizona passed peacefully on March 11, 2019 surrounded by her Church family. She was born on March 17, 1924 in Athens, Greece to Fotini and Themistocles Kotoulias. Angela left Greece in 1950 and settled in Montreal, Canada where she married Peter Georges. They later moved to Boston, Massachusetts in 1951. Peter Georges passed and Angela later married Charles Hapgood. Charles Hapgood passed in 1982. Angela then moved to the Phoenix area for the remainder of her life.
Angela was an evangelist of her Greek Orthodox faith and traditions as a longtime member of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Phoenix. She was a member of Philoptochos and her life was a living example of Ephesians 4:32 - "And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ."
Angela spent most of her time cooking and baking for the Church's festival and always welcomed people with a smile. She made friends everywhere she went and was a warm and loving lady. She will be missed by all who love her and we will miss her feisty spirit.
Angela is survived by her only sister, Maria Chrisostali, who resides in Athens, Greece.
