Hariklia Sitaras, 88 of Bethlehem passed away on July 15, 2020 at home surrounded by her family. She was the wife of George Sitaras for 72 years.
Hariklia was born on July 30, 1931 in Chios Greece, daughter of the late Dimitrios and Evgenia (Sitaras) Neamonitis.
Hariklia worked with her husband George at George’s Oasis on Schonersville Road in Bethlehem for many years and earlier at other Restaurants George owned.
She was a faithful member of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Bethlehem and a member of the Ladies Philoptochos of the Cathedral.
She was so devoted to her family. Still fresh in our minds, is the way her face would light up when she saw her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her priorities were family, church, and her flowers. She loved her flowers and she most definitely loved immersing herself in caring for them.
