Elaine Johnatakis Norton's 80th birthday is May 24. She elected to have a joint gathering of her family for their annual reunion held usually on the day before Greek Easter.
Her late husband is Carl. She is the mother of four, Jim, Gary, Carla and Med (deceased); and sister to seven, Jimmy (deceased), Lorraine (deceased), Shirley Cooper, John Johnatakis, Betty Workman, Mary Lee Greenland and Connie Kosmack (deceased).
She was honored by her descendents from as far away as Washington, Wisconsin and Idaho. Several hundred family members attended and enjoyed the traditional lamb barbeque and Greek cuisine.
