Sad news…

Dear all,

It is with great sorrow that I have to announce the decease of our colleague and friend Eleni Pangratiou-Alexaki. She leaves a void in our Council, in the SPS association, in several other associations but also in research, in territorial animation in Greece and in Europe and – inevitably – in her family and her circle of friends and collaborators. The SDS board, our members and partners send thei sympathy for  the irreplaceable and premature loss of their colleague and friend Eleni. We keep her in our mind and heart.

We will let you know as soon as possible the e-mail address where you can (if you want) contact her relatives and open a tribute page on the SPS website tomorrow. So, I will contact you soon.

  1. Chère Eleni –
    Je ne vous ai rencontré que peu de temps, je ne retiendrai que votre gentillesse, et vos services à notre merveilleux métier de la pierre sèche.

  2. My beloved Eleni was a fighter of life on all levels. With a smile and unconditional love she knew how to dedicate time, to people, goals and to all those that she considered worthy. Eleni would not accept obstacles, illness . We traveled together twice by car from Ioannina to Croatia and back and she was tireless and full of spirit. I feel gifted for everything we talked about and experienced together.
    My heartfelt condolences to her son and her partner.
    Antonia Theodosiou
    SPS – Vice President

  3. We dare to say OUR Eleni, who dedicated a major part of her life devotion and energy to drystone . We will miss her, the drystone world will miss her. We promise we will keep pulling our efforts together for what she aimed for: the safegurading of the drystone landscape in Greece and in the world
    Fondly ,
