Alethea Kazolias-Fraleigh

Alethea was a generous soul who loved giving back to those within her community and helping in any way she could, however, her favorite thing to do was to spend time with her family, especially the “Sunday Funday” gatherings at home. There was no limit to her generosity and love.

Along with her husband, she is survived by the five beloved children of their beautiful blended family: Josiah Ramirez, Joseph Ramirez, Giovanni Ramirez, Amelia Fraleigh, and Austin Jessen.

She is also survived by her siblings, Marissa Berryann (Justin Berryann), Philotemo Kazolias (Hailey Moran), Nicholas Kazolias (Mary Kazolias), Satiro Kazolias (Jessica Kazolias), Pauline Quattrone, Ellen Kempf, Aeyiou Kazolias, and Socrates Kazolias, her mother-in-law, Donna Fraleigh, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Along with her parents, she was also predeceased by her brother Panacea Kazolias and her nephew, Paul Kazolias.

The family would like to thank Alethea’s “adopted daughter,” Ari Brown, Donna Fraleigh, and Darice Sloniker for their help in caring for Alethea.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will take place at a future date. With this in mind, consider penning some of your favorite stories and thoughts of Alethea to be shared at that time.
