It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, Ioanna (Jean) Loubardeas at the age of 89 years, one month shy of her 90th birthday.
She was a devoted mother to Peter (Barbara) Loubardeas and Helen (Tony) Turay. She was a proud Yiayia to Michael (Kendra), Christopher, Stephanie (Richard), Maria (Ashton), Katie (Liam). Great-grandma to Maxwell, Arthur, Ellie and Theodore.
Jean was born in the town of Kastri, Arcadia Greece and immigrated to Canada in 1958 devoting her life to family and church, with the Greek Orthodox Community of Saskatoon.
She took pride in maintaining an active lifestyle, harvesting a bountiful garden, and volunteering for the Greek Community. We all enjoyed mom's endless Greek cooking and baking. One of mom's proudest accomplishments was having donated blood to the Red Cross over 100 times.
The family would like to thank the sisters and staff at St. Joseph's Care Home for their compassionate care. Jean is survived by her twin sister Athanasia Kotopouli of Greece, Kalomoira (Mary) Couros of Saskatoon and numerous nieces, nephews in Canada and Greece.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made in Jean's memory to Alzheimers Society of Saskatchewan or St. Joseph's Home (33 Valens Drive Saskatoon, SK S7L 3S2).
There will be a private family service with interment to follow at the Greek section at the Woodlawn Cemetery.
