Fannye Evangeline Andrews (nee Grammas) Surrounded by her family, Fannye Andrews passed away peacefully on March 6, 2019. Fannye was born in Birmingham, Alabama on December 8, 1926, to Venetia and George Grammas. Birmingham was home to Fannye until she moved to Winnipeg in 1950. There, she worked her magic as a mother, an educator and a volunteer. Fannye contributed to the education of countless young people throughout her teaching career at Windsor Park Collegiate. These contributions are second only to her most cherished and important commitment, that was to her five children, Renie, Deno, George, Tia and Peggy. In her retirement, she enjoyed her decades long association as both an educator and a volunteer with The Winnipeg Art Gallery. She also highly valued her membership in the The American Women's Club and, most importantly, the St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church. Fannye was predeceased by her parents, Venetia and George Grammas, sisters, Ernestine Costellos and Evangeline Stathatkes, brother Cameron Grammas, and her infant grandson Christopher Normandin. Her grandchildren, Kristen Normandin, Douglas Stephen and Cameron Cumming, and great-grandson Jacob Weinberg are left with the fondest memories of a fiercely loving, doting and proud grandmother. Prayers will be held at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church with the reception and interment to follow immediately at Green Acres Funeral Home. Should friends desire, contributions may be made to St. Demitrios Greek Orthodox Church of Winnipeg, Manitoba and the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.
