Mary Antalis Georges passed away on December 31, 2018.
Mary graduated valedictorian in 1942 from Weir High School in Weirton, WV. In 1946, she earned her registered nursing degree from St. Luke's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. After marrying her husband, Danny in 1947 and beginning her nursing career in Cleveland, she returned to the Ohio Valley in 1952 to join her brother, Dr. A.J. Antalis, at the Powhatan Clinic, while also working at Bellaire City Hospital and the Ormet Corporation. She later served as nurse and office manager, working alongside both of her brothers, Drs. A.J. and Jim Antalis, at the Shadyside Clinic.
Mary was a longtime member of the Martins Ferry Greek Orthodox Church of the Life-Giving Fountain. She also participated in many local clubs and organizations including the Shadyside Chamber of Commerce, the Hillview Garden Club and the Shadyside Women's Club. She was an honorary member of the Shadyside High School National Honor Society and served as the band camp nurse for the Shadyside High School Marching Band.
Mary was a beloved figure for decades in Shadyside and a friend to many. Often known as 'YiaYia' by the younger generation, she enjoyed taking long walks around the town and visiting with her friends and neighbors. Although not originally from Shadyside, she made the town her own, and never missed attending any event held nor an opportunity to celebrate all things Shadyside. She was a stranger to no one, and would go out of her way to make anyone feel welcome in her presence. A long-time nurse, she would selflessly make house calls and come to the aid of all those in need. She was especially proud of her Hellenic heritage and loved Greek music, dancing, and her church where she was a member of the Ladies Philoptochos Society.
To honor her life the family wishes memorial contributions be made to the Martins Ferry Greek Orthodox Church of the Life Giving Fountain. We thank you in advance for all your support during this difficult time.
