Anita "Dido" Argyrople Obituary

Anita "Dido" (Daston) Argyrople, passed away peacefully of natural causes on October 15, 2023, in Lynnfield, MA. Born July 10, 1925, in Boston, MA, she lived a fulfilling and vibrant life marked by her love for her family, laughter, and passion for teaching.

Dido, as she was lovingly known, was the cherished wife of 65 years to the late Nicholas Argyrople. She was the daughter of the late George and Zenovia (Karapatis) Daston, youngest sister of Aspacia (Babe) Lanata, Philip Daston, Elizabeth (Betty) Fuller, Anna Stathos, and Paul Daston. She leaves behind her three children, Anthony (Don) Argyrople and his wife Jill, Christopher Argyrople, and Stacey Kevorkian and her husband Jeffrey.  She also leaves her grandchildren, Selam, Victoria, Catherine, and Tia. Her love for her family was immeasurable and was the cornerstone of her life.

A proud Bostonian, Dido was a graduate of the Burdett School. She brought her passion for teaching to her diverse career, where she thrived as an Exercise instructor for 40 years, Greek Dance instructor, Cooking teacher, and lastly, Realtor. Each of these roles allowed her to engage with her community, share her skills, and make a lasting impact on the lives she touched.

Dido was a woman of many interests and talents. She was an avid cook and loved to entertain. Her passion for games was infectious, with Scrabble, Boggle, Sorry, Chinese Checkers and Musical Chairs being her favorites. She always competed with great energy and the desire to win. She found joy in the simple pleasures of life, such as spending time at the beach and traveling to new places. She loved to sing in her church choir and was the first Choir Director of the St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church in Wollaston, MA (now in Braintree, MA). She was also known for her appearance on Family Feud in the early 1990’s with some of her nieces and a nephew. However, it was the special moments spent with her family that she cherished the most.

Throughout her life, Dido embodied a spirit of resilience, kindness, and unyielding love for her family. Her radiant smile and hearty laughter were the soul of every gathering. Her wisdom and strength were a beacon for her family, guiding them through life's ups and downs. Her memory will live on in the hearts of those she loved and those who loved her.

In celebrating Dido's life, we remember a woman who loved deeply, laughed easily, lived passionately, and inspired greatly. We mourn her loss but celebrate the extraordinary life she lived and the precious memories she leaves behind. Anita "Dido" Argyrople will be deeply missed, but her spirit will forever live in the hearts of her loved ones.
