November 29, 1932 ~ October 16, 2021 (age 88)


On Saturday, October 16, 2021, Christina Panagakos (nee: Copoulos) passed away at her South Carolina home; she was 88. Born Tuesday, November 29, 1932 in Frederick, Maryland to the late Michael and Bertha Copoulos, Christina later moved to Baltimore, Maryland where she met and married George Panagakos on June 15, 1952.  The two had four cherished girls over the years and celebrated 69 years of marriage in the summer of 2021.

For a short time after graduating cosmetology school Christina worked as a hair dresser. Additionally, she worked seasonally for H&R Block for 20 years. But her main focus was being a homemaker to her daughters and George. She created a warm and welcoming space for not only her family, but the neighborhood kids who will always remember her as “Ms. Chris.”  Christina valued family and enjoyed spending her time visiting with her mother, sisters, brothers, and attending family reunions in Frederick, Maryland. In November 2020, Christina packed up her Betty Boop collection and all of her unicorn memorabilia and she and George moved to Little River, SC in November 2020.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Patti Jaeger, and siblings James Copoulos, John Copoulos, Athena Roach, Frances Myers.
