Fotopulos, JoAnn

April 15, 1934 — May 3, 2020

JoAnn was born April 15, 1934 in Arcadia, Greece and passed in the Lord on May 3, 2020. JoAnn graduated from high school in Argostolion Cephalonia in 1951. Following graduation, she enrolled in the local hospital to study elemental nursing. After graduation, she joined one the local humanitarian groups formed by Queen Frederiki of Greece. She would travel throughout the islands vaccinating children for childhood diseases. She was extremely proud of the service she provided to the children. She continued her love of caring for children and had an in-home daycare for 47 years in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area. She also loved her faith and attended Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and was devout in her Orthodox faith and the community as a whole.

JoAnn immigrated to Kansas City, MO, USA in 1954 and worked in her Uncle Mike Vrentas' restaurant for several years. In 1958 she met the love of her life, George Fotopulos, and was married on June 22, 1958 at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Kansas City, Missouri.

JoAnn is survived by her husband George, son Dean and daughter-in-law Missy, and grandson Andrew. She is also survived by brother Bill and wife Tasia of Oklahoma City, sister Aphrodite and her husband Stavros of Athens, Greece, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and godchildren. She will be missed and live on forever in our hearts.
