Obituary For Anastasia Diminture

Peabody - Anastasia (Tilas) Diminture, 91, of Rockledge, Florida and formerly of Peabody, MA, died peacefully surrounded by her family on February 19, 2023.

She was the devoted wife of the late John Diminture with whom she shared 62 years of marriage. She was born January 30, 1932 and raised in Peabody, the youngest daughter of the late Angelo and Helen (Kalavritinos) Tilas. She was a graduate of Peabody High School class of 1951. She was a member of St. Vasilios Greek Church in Peabody and had been active in their Philoptochos Athena group.

Anastasia was known for her generosity, her witty humor, and her love of socializing with her family and friends. She made everyone feel at-home when they walked into her house, and you never left with an empty stomach! She was never short on conversation and made a friend wherever she went. What she often said about others was true about her… “She was a good soul”.

She was the proud mother of seven children; her daughter, Eve and husband, Ted Carrick of Cocoa FL, son, John and wife, Yuan Diminture of St. Cloud FL, son, Gregory Diminture of Rockledge FL, daughter, Helene and her late husband, John Rogers of St. Augustine, FL, daughter, Stacey and husband, James Yavorski of Georgetown, MA, daughter, Stephanie and husband, James Warren of Peabody, MA, and son, Thomas and wife, Lisa Diminture of San Antonio, TX.

She is also survived by 14 great-grandchildren. She was sister-in-law to Pauline Tilas of Peabody and pre-deceased by her brothers, sisters and their spouses, Charlie & Angie Mirageas, William & Marga Mirageas, Christos & Mary Tillas, Nicholas Tilas, Stephen Tilas, Georgia & James Maihos, Ann & Samuel Sakelakos. She had many adored nieces, nephews, and family friends, too numerous to list.

    Stacia was a big part of my childhood growing up on Anita Road in Peabody. Her daughter, Eve, and I were childhood friends and beyond. I spent many hours at her home and one of my special memories is babysitting some of the younger children while everyone else went to midnight mass for Easter at St. Vasilios I was always invited to stay for the meal when they got home. That was special for me! I have so many good memories but mostly how generous and welcoming a person Stacia was. I offer my deep and sincerest condolences to the whole family. Jane (Wolovick) Curtis

    Speaking first hand as Yia Yia's favorite son in law from West Peabody, I will always have fond memories of our Sunday afternoon feasts at 12 Anita Rd. Along with a beer or two with Papou I will always remember the wonderful atmosphere of these many occasions. Both of my children are lucky to have had such a great childhood with Papou and Yia Yia in there lives. Rest in Peace Yia Yia Love, Jim,Stephanie,Alaina & Michael

    Stacia was a fun lady with a lot of class. We remember visiting when Stacia and John were living in Peabody and went over for lunch. OMG delicious food galore. What a time. We went for a drive to Maine and they showed us the beach they took their kids. What a great time we had. We'll miss you Stacia as we have your husband John. Rest in peace...until we meet again. Love...Jim & Marzenna Carrick
