On May 26, 2021 Amelia Karafotias peacefully passed away at home surrounded by family and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband Harry Karafotias and granddaughter Carey Karafotias.
Amelia was devoted to her church, family, friends and her business. She was an entrepreneur, a business leader, an avid tennis player, and an incredible cook. She was the principal broker and owner of Karafotias Realty which she opened during the summer of 1979.

Her last day at the office was just a few weeks before her passing.

She is survived by her four children Carol, Jim (Terri, Bobbi), Mimi (Michael), Mike (Dede); six grandchildren; and five great grandchildren.
