Adrica Sharou, our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother was born on January 4, 1938 to George and Margaret Giragos in the city of Haifa. After high school, Adrica went on to study accounting at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
In 1960, Adrica’s family immigrated to the United States. Within two weeks, Adrica landed her first job as a staff accountant in New York City kicking off a 40 year career in taxes and accounting. During this time she also became a Certified Public Accountant.
In 1962, she met the love of her life, Elias Louis Sharou and they wed on April 27, 1963 in Hackensack, New Jersey. They went on to have two children, Monique Joannou and Andre Sharou. Adrica and Lou were avid world travelers circumnavigating the globe during their 56 years of marriage.
After retirement in 2016, Adrica continued traveling, gardening and loving her five granddaughters, Christina, Alexis, Natalie, Sarah and Emma. Sadly she passed away after a 15 month battle with Lewy Body Dementia on January 30, 2020.
Her love will always be in our hearts.
