MINETOS, VASSO born in Patras, Greece, on May 10, 1924, passed away peacefully at home on February, 24, 2015.

Vasso grew up in Patras, Greece, and immigrated to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1949. The legacy Vasso left behind will remain forever in the hearts of those she touched. Many west siders have fond memories of Vasso as she stood guard as owner of her beloved Panorama and Casa Grande restaurants doing what she loved most, extending her hospitality to all her patrons and serving them her famous homemade bread. In her later years, it brought Vasso great joy when someone would visit her at her home. One could never leave without having a full meal, regardless of if you were hungry or not. Even when her health had declined, her main concern was whether or not her visitors were made to feel at home with a warm meal and plenty of desserts. Pallbearers will be: Dr. Athanasios Manole, MD, Billy Ninopoulos, Savvas Morris, John Hristopoulos, Greg Miller and Keith Mallory. Honorary Pallbearers will be: Mr. Nick Manole and Dr. Bill Pavlakos, DDS. Memorial Trisagion service will be held on Thursday, March 5, 2015, 7:00 p.m. at FRENCH - University.
