(1863-1935) in a mature age
PERSEPHONE C. PAPANICOLAOU
C. Papanicolaou was the first-born
daughter of Constantine G. Papanicolaou (1863-1935) and Angélique
M. Calouda (1879-1912). She was born in Lidoriki in central
Greece, where her father was appointed Justice of the Peace, following
the family tradition. The latter, who was a graduate of the
School of the University of Athens, was originally from the village of
Drestina or Drestena (today Tristeno) at Doris and his family name was
originally Facalos (The change of name was due to his grand-father's
status, the priest -papa- Nicolas Facalos). After also having
served in Larissa, Thessaly, he resigned from the judiciary and
migrated with his family to Egypt, where he settled as a landowner at
Tewfikia by Kafr El Zayat and traded fertilizers, cotton, iron and
timber. Following the premature death of her mother, who came
from the island of Chios, her father remarried to Calliope Arvanitakis.
In 1917, she was married in Alexandria, Egypt, to John
with whom she gave birth to two sons and a daughter, Angélique
J. Kyriacou (1925-1987).
Persephone C. Papanicolaou passed away prematurely during the
foreign occupation in Athens, Greece, where, while on family
holiday, she was prevented from returning to Egypt because of the
outbreak of the war. It is from her that Persa
(Cangelaris-Bergerat) (1952) got
