Anna Damoulou (Di­a­mond) Evans


Anna Damoulou (Di­a­mond) Evans passed peace­fully on Tues­day, June 28, 2016 af­ter a lengthy jour­ney with de­men­tia. Born in West Seat­tle to Con­stan­tine and Cal­liope Damoulou (Di­a­mond) on De­cem­ber 12, 1929, she lived her en­tire life in the greater Seat­tle area.

Anna was a grad­u­ate of Queen Anne High School, and at­tended Cor­nish School of the Arts and the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton. She cul­ti­vated a life- long love of mu­sic at an early age, with study of pi­ano and singing in var­i­ous choral groups even into her early 80s. Anna met her fu­ture hus­band, Peter Evans, Jr., in the church choir. They went on to sing to­gether for most of their mar­ried lives.

She was a tra­di­tional mother and wife un­til the early 1970s when she worked as an in­struc­tional aide in the Ed­monds School District. She con­tin­ued in that ca­reer for much of the re­main­der of her life, later teach­ing swim­ming to chil­dren with spe­cial needs.

Anna is sur­vived by her hus­band of 62 years, Peter; her chil­dren Peter, Mar­i­anna and David, and their spouses; eight grand­chil­dren and six great-grand­chil­dren. In ad­di­tion, she leaves many nieces and neph­ews and their chil­dren.

Anna had a nat­u­ral cu­rios­ity, an in­clu­sive and deep love for all peo­ple, es­pe­cially those on the mar­gins. She was ded­i­cated to her par­ents, her sis­ters, and her own fam­ily, but her in­flu­ence was much broader. She will be re­mem­bered for her gen­tle smile, the know­ing twin­kle in her eyes, her great cook­ing and her sense of style.

A Tris­a­gion ser­vice, will be held at the Greek Ortho­dox Church of the As­sump­tion (1804-13th Av­enue, Seat­tle, WA 98122), on Thurs­day, June 30, 2016 at 7 p.m.

Fu­neral services will be held at the Greek Ortho­dox Church of the As­sump­tion on Fri­day, July 1, 2016, at 11 a.m. In­ter­ment at Lake­view Ceme­tery.
