Maria Koutsoutis (nee Mavridis) passed away on March 11, 2024, at the age of 55, after suffering from complications due to an AVM brain aneurysm. She was born in Xanthi, Greece, but moved to the United States during her childhood, where she graduated from Upper Darby High School. She later attended Temple University, obtaining degrees in both Marketing and Finance. Maria dedicated her career to Vanguard, where she worked for 32 years, demonstrating her boundless energy, deep expertise, and unwavering dedication. She excelled in various roles, including as a project manager in her final decade with the company.

Maria is survived by her beloved husband, Tommy, whom she shared 30 years of marriage with, as well as her cherished children, Irene and Dean, and her devoted parents, Kosta and Alexandra Mavridis. Maria was known for her vivacious spirit and generosity, and her absence will be deeply felt by her family, friends, and the broader community, especially within the Greek cultural circles that she held dear. She had a strong faith and trust in God and took immense pride in her role as a mother, rejoicing in the accomplishments of her children with joy and unwavering support. Maria’s empathy made her a confidante to many, always willing to lend a listening ear and share a moment of laughter or dance.

A service to celebrate the life of Maria will be held on Monday, March 18, 2024, at St. Luke Greek Orthodox Church, located at 35 N. Malin Road, Broomall, PA 19008. The visitation will be from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, followed by the funeral service. Following that, Maria will be laid to rest at Sts. Peter & Paul Cemetery.
