In memory of
Mary (Koufalis) Xifaras
Mary (Koufalis) Xifaras, 93, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 2, 2020. She was the beloved wife of the late Steve L. Xifaras. Born in Areopolis, Greece, she was the daughter of the late Kyriakos and Elizabeth Vassiliki (Mougakas) Koufalis. Mary came to the United States with her family as an adult after surviving the Second World War and the Greek Civil War that followed. Mary was very devout, and her strong faith got her through the difficult years. She was a longtime member of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Pawtucket and she served the Society for Friends of the Poor for many years. Above all, Mary was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and grandmother who always put her faith in God and her family first. She will be lovingly remembered by all whose lives she has touched over the past ninety-three years. Mary leaves a son, Louis "Lou" S. Xifaras, and his wife, Maxine, of Mansfield; two granddaughters, Marika and Amanda Xifaras; a sister, Evangelina Mitsakos, and many nieces and nephews. She was the sister of the late Stella Eftaxas, Demitri Koufalis, and Thikeo Koufalis. Out of a genuine concern for the health and well-being of Mary's extended family and many friends, all services will be private. Flowers are respectfully omitted. Memorial gifts to the Maria Lyssikatos Scholarship Fund, C/O Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, 97 Walcott St., Pawtucket, RI 02860 would be appreciated. Arrangements are entrusted to William W. Tripp Funeral Home, Pawtucket, RI TRIPPFUNERALHOME.com
