Helen Sporidis
Viewing: N/A
Service: Private service will be held in November 13, 2019 (Wednesday) in the St. Louis Friary location in Washington DC

Helen “Nitsa” Sporidis of Potomac, Maryland passed away on Friday, October 25, 2019 in Potomac Maryland. She was 83 years old.

She is survived by her children Lydia Sporidis-Trello, Harry Sporidis (Christina), and her four grandchildren: Rachel Sporidis Trello, Skyler, John and Sam.

Helen will be celebrated for her courage, tenacity, and unbending loyalty to those she loved. Uncommonly intuitive and boldly independent, Helen was an ever-present source of strength, comfort, and guidance to her children, grandchildren, and all those she inspired along the way.

Helen Anastassios Sendoukas was born in Constantinople (Istanbul), Turkey. She attended Ioakeimion High School for Girls in Constantinople, and later traveled to Italy to study at a teacher training program run by Maria Montessori. Helen immigrated to the United States in February 1960 with her then fiancé, John H. Sporidis to attend college at Howard University. The two were married later that month, and she later went onto become a teacher at St. Constantine and Helen in Washington DC.  

Helen was truly a woman before her time and the memory of her spirit will live on through her children, grandchildren, and all those who knew her.

A private service will be held in November 13, 2019 in the St. Louis Friary located in Washington, DC.
