Marie Christine Yianitsas Vaccarello

Marie Vaccarello

Marie Christine Yianitsas Vaccarello (known to all as "Mimi") passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, December 7, 2018, with her daughter and a Niece by her side. She was born on November 24, 1928, at her home in Beaumont, Texas, to Laura Kiatta Yianitsas and Sam George Yianitsas.

Her most dominant characteristic was her resolute purpose to extend love, affection and assistance to all she came in contact with. In her DNA was an insatiable desire and passion to actively practice the affirmation that Jesus expressed in Acts 20:35 from the Bible: "It is more blessed to give than to receive." All who knew her would readily agree with that profound statement.

It has been said, that if you could use one word..., just one word to describe Mimi, that one word would be, "SWEET."

On this planet earth she will be sorely missed, but in the paradise of heaven, she will experience a serenity and peace of God which passes all understanding.

Survivors include her daughter, Andrea Rowell and her husband, Jon, of Carrollton; brother, Jack Sam Yianitsas of Silsbee; granddog, Lily; and many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; son, George Vance Vaccarello; Tom Vance Vaccarello;sisters, Helen Hawa, Anna Economos; and brother, George Yianitsas.

A gathering of Ms. Vaccarello’s family and friends will begin at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, December 13, 2018, in the Cloister Room at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 680 Calder Avenue, Beaumont. Her memorial service will follow at 2:00 p.m., in the sanctuary at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, with interment to follow at Magnolia Cemetery, Beaumont. A family committal was held at Broussard’s Crematorium under the direction of Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 680 Calder Avenue, Beaumont, Texas 77701; or to a charity of one’s choice.

    My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).

    It has been many years since I have seen Marie as I left Beaumont some years ago. She, as well as Tom, were people I knew while still a Beaumonter. She was, I agree, a sweet lady who had a good heart, and was a thoughtful person. My deepest sympathy is extended to her family. Warm thoughts, from Anita Savino (Kemp) Fournier
