Obituary For Carol Glyptis

Carol (Pascaris) Glyptis, 87, of Peabody, died Wednesday May 17 at the Neville Center in Cambridge following a brief illness. She was the devoted wife of the late George Glyptis.

Born in Kardamyla, Chios, Greece, she was the daughter of the late George and Maria (Kontos) Pascaris. Carol graduated from Livanio Senior High School in Kardamyla in 1953. She emigrated to the United States with her mother in 1954.

Carol worked as a seamstress in her younger years and later taught Greek School in the afternoon program at St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church. She also worked at her husband’s liquor store in downtown Peabody for a few years. Upon the death of her husband, she went to work for her brother at Captain Pizza in North Reading for many years until her retirement. Five years after retiring, she went back to work with her sister at Syms in Peabody until they closed.

Carol was an active member of St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church and volunteered at the church’s annual Greek festival. She participated in many events with the Ladies Philoptochos Society doing outreach and charity work. She was also a dedicated and beloved member of the church choir for many years.

Carol is survived by her two daughters, Tina Glyptis and her partner Sean McEntaggart of Arlington, and Maria and her husband George Georgeles of Hampton, NJ, her sister, Irene Kyminas of Peabody and by her beloved two grandchildren, Kallie M Prera and Michael Georgeles and her great granddaughter, Kalany Prera. Besides her husband, she was predeceased by her brother Basil “Bill” Pascaris.

A visitation will be held on Monday from 10:00 AM until 11:00 AM at St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church, Paleologos St, Peabody followed by her Funeral Service at 11:00 AM at the Church to which relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend.

    As a friend of Tina's, I met Carol in 1990 while living on Longstreet Rd in Peabody. I kinda got the "side eye" from her at first meeting, but DANG could she cook! Years later moving to San Francisco and with a little help from Tina, my partner and I reaped the rewards of Carol's AMAZING holiday baked goods. This went on for at least a decade, I honestly lost count. She made the best baklava, to this day, I've ever tasted. The topper, and I still have no idea what they were, I simply referred to them as "the heroin cookies" to Tina because they were BEYOND addictive! Tina always seemed to manage to grab a few extra for me in this annual holiday bundle of love from Carol. The love that went into creating those holiday treats were felt across the country and always gave my partner and I a sense of belonging and connection that I'm not sure she was even aware of. Our hearts go out to Tina, Sean and the rest of the family.
