Irene M. (Hatzithakis) Kostoulakos
Born in Lowell, Massachusetts on December 22, 1921, a daughter of the late Michael and the late Gramatiki (Baharikos) Hatzithakis, she received her education in the Lowell School System.

Irene was known for making the best Thiples in town and for serving her Greek chicken soup every Sunday after church. She made plenty of soup for everyone and her door was always open for family and friends.
