Marion G. (Mangos) Zahhos, 95, of Minneapolis, MN, peacefully passed away on October 23, 2023, surrounded by family in Rochester, MN.
Preceded in death by her husband, George, her true love from the first day they met in 1946; her parents, Gus and Nickie; son-in-law, Bill; daughter, Niki, and grandson, Nicholas. She deeply loved her entire family.
Marion will always be remembered for her spunk, laughter, optimism, and her ever present smile. She volunteered throughout her life in organizations such as the Philoptochos, the Mother's Singers, the Zuhrah Shrine Women's Auxiliary and the annual Minneapolis and Rochester Greek Festivals. We know she is now dancing with her husband in heaven. We'll always imagine hearing her say, "if you're waiting for me, you're wasting time." We couldn't have asked for a better parent and Yiayia (grandmother), and will miss her every day. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her.
Marion is survived by her children, Connie (Nick), Jim, John; grandchildren, Tia (Richard), John (Katie), Mariya (Than), Louis, Michael (Rose), Nicki, Dena (Brian), & Maria (Cory); great-grandchildren, Elliot, Charlotte, Nicolas, Callum, and George. Our entire family will honor her legacy with continuing love, humility, and appreciation for the time we were given to be with her.
