Christina Polychronis Salas 06/04/1935 to 01/08/2024
Christina passed away peacefully in the home of her loving Granddaughter Jennifer McKendrick on 01/08/2024. She is preceded in death by her Father George Polychronis, Mother Virginia Papailiou Polychronis, Husband Isaac Salas, Daughter Debra Wilson, Son Christopher (Chris) Salas, Granddaughter Nicollette Salas and Grandson Brock Williams. She was survived by Daughter Pamela Salas, Daughter Cynthia (Cindy) Brundage, Daughter Virginia (Gina) McKendrick, Son Derek Salas, 8 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 6 great-great-grandchildren plus 2 more little ones on the way.
Being a strong Greek woman, Christina could be a handful, difficult and a bit cantankerous at times, but she was also vivacious, spunky, and full of pizazz. She enjoyed working in her beautiful yard, traveling, watching football, spoiling her pets at their grooming appointments, cooking, camping, and collecting her treasures. She enjoyed the good times spent with her children, hosting family get-togethers and telling her life’s stories. Christina was involved in her grandchildren’s lives and was well known as the fun grandma and the #1 Cheerleader at all the grandkids’ football, softball, basketball games and all other activities they were involved in. You could count on her to be in the stands with her wooden spoons banging on her pots and pans, making sure we got an ample amount of candy at the Murray parade and the crazy neon shirts at the yearly Lagoon trips. Christina, like the rest of us, was not perfect but did the best she could to make sure her family’s needs and wants were taken care of even if that meant sacrificing something for herself. We’re going to miss the love in her eyes and the feeling from her heart every time she looked at us and said “S’ agapo paidi mou, puso puso puso” and all the Bravo paidi mou’s too. We’re going to miss her jokes, sarcasm, life lessons, singing, dancing, authentic Greek food and yes, even her sass. We’re going to miss all the good times we shared together. May all the beautiful memories live on.
S’ Agapo Mom, Grandmama Oopa, Yiayia and friend.
