After a long, beautiful life, Panayiota “Pam” (Patsalos) Nekos of Pleasantville, NY, was called into eternal rest on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

Pam was born on July 15, 1927 in Newburgh, NY to Constantine and Agathe (Striphas) Patsalos. She was a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy and received a bachelor’s degree in Math from Ladycliff College, Highland Falls, NY. Due to a teachers’ shortage after WWII, she subsequently obtained her Elementary School Teacher’s Certification. She taught for several years, and then worked for GE as an Engineering Assistant in their Gas Turbine Division. After raising her family, she was employed at PPG Biomedical Systems as an Executive Assistant in Pleasantville, NY.

From a young age, Pam was always a high-energy person who loved the outdoors, dancing, sports, drawing, painting, parades and patriotic events. As a child, she worked in her father’s business, Patsalos Brothers Ice Cream and Confectionary Store. She was active in various organizations including hiking and skiing with the OYK Adirondack Club, Contemporary Club, Pleasantville School PTO and several bridge and art groups. She was a longtime member of the Church of Our Savior in Rye, NY where she was active in the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos, serving as Treasurer and Chaired the annual luncheon fundraiser.

On July 6, 1957 she married Peter James Nekos of Kingston, NY and was blessed with 3 children and their spouses, Athena (Costas) Loukellis (Hartford, CT), Barbara (Anthony) Soldano (Ridgefield, CT) and James (Michele Fennelly) Nekos (Katonah, NY). She is also survived by her loving grandchildren, Nicholas, Stephen and Alexander Loukellis; Peter, Demetrius and Georgia Nekos, 7 nieces and nephews and a God-daughter.

In addition to her parents, Pam was predeceased by her brothers, Demetrius and Peter; sister, Georgia (Patsalos) Janis; sisters-in-law, Maria (Nekos) Davis and Angelina (Vassel) Patsalos and brother-in-law, Thomas Janis.

Pam had an appreciation for everyone she met resulting in many long-time friends who will miss her. She will be remembered for her gentle demeanor, wonderful personality and devotion to her family and friends. Pam and Peter recently moved to Atria on the Hudson where she was enjoying her new friends and community.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, December 20th from 4pm – 8pm with a Trisagion at 6pm at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, 418 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY.
A funeral service will be held Friday, December 21, 11am at the Greek Orthodox Church of Our Saviour, 2195 Westchester Avenue East, Rye, NY. Internment will take place at All Souls Cemetery, 175 Marble Avenue, Pleasantville, NY.
