In Loving Memory

Mavromatis, Barbara Ann (nee Pappas)

December 2, 1940 - December 5, 2023

Passed away on Dec 5th, 2023, she was 83 years old. She was born and raised in near southside of St Louis, Missouri and moved to Tholozan after getting married at the age of 17 and was married for 62 years.  She raised 3 boys who live in Missouri, Illinois and California. She made her longtime home in Sappington, Missouri for 40 years.  She spent the last 4 years of her life in an assisted living facility in Sappington, a few miles from her family home.

Barbara loved her family, her faith, walks with friends, and a sweet treat every night.  She never met a bowl of ice cream she didn’t like or a box of Crunch and Munch that did not make it to long after opening.

Devoted wife of Jordan Mavromatis, deceased; loving mother of George Mavromatis, Gregory Mavromatis, and Christopher Mavromatis; adoring YiaYia of Arminda Downey-Mavromatis, Jordan Mavromatis, and Barbara Mavromatis; sister of Gregory Pappas, deceased; daughter of Peter and Xanthippe Pappas.

Barbara will be missed by her friends and family after her long and interesting life.

Barbara will have her services at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at 4967 Forest Park Ave, St Louis Mo 63108 on Saturday December 9th.  Close family viewing will be 9;30-10;00 and public viewing will be 10;00-11;00.  We will proceed to the cemetery after the church ceremony is complete.

  1. Barb was like a sister to me when we grew up in St. Louis. Our families were very close. I called her my “Albanian cousin.” My deepest condolences to her family and friends. I will miss her.

  2. Rick and I are deeply saddened with Barbs passing as we never have gotten over Jordyns. We had such fun trips on the food service conventions we all attended. Looking at pictures of them bring back such a warmth of memories.
    With deepest sympathy to Barb’s and Jordyn’s children: they always shared such wonderful stories of all of you. To the grandchildren: your grandma and grandpa were the kindest people and to their brother ( in law) sister( in law) we are deeply saddened by your loss.

  3. I truly had a wonderful mother in law. I spent lots of time at the home with Barb talking. She absolutely loved her friends and family. She talked lots about how lucky she was to have such wonderful friends. She loved chocolate milk shakes. I loved her very much! May you Rest In Peace Barb. I miss seeing you. I know you loved me and that was the greatest gift of all.
