Elaine Artemis Antonopoulos, 87, of Indianapolis, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2023. She was born December 2, 1936, in Chicago, Illinois. She is survived by her son, Anthony (Gena) Antonopoulos, and grandchildren, Alexander, and Nicolette. She was preceded in death by her father, Chris Soulias, mother, Niki Marinos (Mavrogen), devoted husband Mimis, and daughter, Mina Ann.
She was a 1955 graduate of Shortridge High School and married the love of her life, Mimis Antonopoulos, in the summer of 1957. Together, they raised two children, Mina Ann and Anthony, who brought joy and pride to Elaine’s life.
She loved children and enjoyed being of service to children with disabilities as an educator at West Central Joint Services in Wayne Township, where she retired in 1993. She was a long-time member of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox church and a 40-year member of the Daughters of Penelope, the women’s auxiliary of the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) organization where she served as chapter president and district governor.
Her God, her family, and her friends were most important to her. She instilled good values in her children and grandchildren that have served them well. She doted on her grandchildren, Alex and Niki, and enjoyed watching them play sports and other activities. She looked forward to spending time with them during weekly Sunday dinners. Elaine had a servant’s heart and lived by 1 Peter 4:10: “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 3500 West 106th Street, Carmel, Indiana, from 09:00-11:00 am, followed by the funeral service at 11:00 am. Burial service will be immediately following at Crown Hill Cemetery.
The family would like to express their gratitude for the outpouring of love and support they have received during this difficult time. Elaine Antonopoulos will be terribly missed, but her legacy will live on in the hearts of all who knew her. Memorial contributions may be made to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral.
