She was bom in Skopi, Greece on January 1, 1902. As a girl, she roamed the mountains of the Peloponnese as a shepherdess. In the midst of World War II, she married Demetrios Georgelos. Together they farmed the rugged Greek land, and survived the hardships of war and economic depression. Although she had little formal education, the world was her classroom. She became the midwife of her village, delivering over 160 babies, and mastered the crafts of weaving, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint and winemaking. She gave birth to six children, one of whom she bore alone in the fields and carried back to her home. After the delivery, she sustained an injury that resulted in a profound hearing loss. She lost two of her daughters, Marigo and Beba, as infants, and her eldest son, Likourgo, as a young man. In the early 1950 s, she and Demetrios sent their barely-teenage son, George, to the United States in pursuit of "the American Dream." That American Dream became hers, as well, when at the age of 60, she immigrated to Chicago, Illinois with her husband to join the rest of her family. In Chicago, she found work in a bakery and, after a series of surgeries, her hearing was restored. In 1972, her husband died. She persevered through all the good and bad that life had to offer surrounded by her family. Her children had married and she became the grandmother to nine grandchildren. In the late 1970 s she moved to Tucson. She was proud to see all of her grandchildren attend college and to see many of them marry and have children of their own. As she grew older, she enjoyed traveling to Greece to visit family and friends. In her late 80 s she returned to Greece to recapture some of her youthful freedom and lived in her own home near her surviving brother. Later, when her memory and health began to fail, she moved back to Chicago to be near her daughter, Anastasia and her family, and then to Tucson, to be closer to her sons, Anastasios and George, and their families. She is survived by Anastasia and Emanuel Penagiotaros; her daughter and son-in-law, George and Constance Georgelos; her son and ' daughter-in-law, and Anastasios (Tom) and Basiliki (Kiki) Georgelos, her nine grand-children; and six greatgrandchildren. Memorial services will be held at the St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 1145 E. Ft. Lowell, Tucson, AZ at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 16, 2002. Memorial contributions should be made to the same.

He was surprised and touched when his co-authors dedicated that treatise to him. In addition, the Arizona State Bar Association instituted the "R. Kelly Hocker Employment and Labor Law Writing Competition" at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University Colleges of Law in January 2000. Kelly was a natural storyteller whose passion for life blended with his dedication to the law. This was surpassed only by his love and devotion for his family, Anna and Peter Fletcher; and grandchildren, Rachel and Abraham (Tucson), Charlie and Karen Hocker (Vermont) and Adam Hocker (who lived with Kelly in Sierra Vista); close family friend, Eustacio Luna (who helped care for Kelly in his last years) and sister Betty June Moser (Gila Bend).
