Northfield, New Jersey

Beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother


Marion Zachariades, age 94, formerly of Northfield NJ, passed away Sunday, May 9, 2021 peacefully in her sleep. She was the daughter of Angeline and George Demopulos, immigrants from Greece. Marion was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband, Cosmas, in 2011, and brothers Christy and Everett Demopulos. She's survived by her children: Georgia Z. Beit (Bruce Glaunert) and Peter Zachariades (Donna); grandchildren Justin Beit (Jenna), Zachary Zachariades, Matthew Zachariades (Melis), a great granddaughter Abigail Beit, her sister-in-law Evelyn Demopulos, nieces, a nephew, and her inherited grandson, Christopher Glaunert (Laura).
Marion attended Stroudsburg State Teachers College becoming an elementary school teacher and taught for seven years in Piscataway, NJ. She married and together she and Cosmas owned and operated the Reading Restaurant in Pottsville, PA, later moving to Atlantic City where they ran the Schwem Coffee Shop at New York and Atlantic Avenues.
Marion soon left the restaurant for Cosmas to run and became a teacher at the Union Avenue School in Margate where she taught 1st and 2nd grades for nearly thirty years.
She and Cosmas enjoyed retirement taking many trips abroad, as well as across the United States and retired to their paradise in Cape Coral, Florida where they shared the company of many dear friends. She'll be remembered for her fierce love of family, deep faith, her quick wit and always having a great joke, Greek saying or story to tell. She will forever be missed.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 7004 Ridge Ave. Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234.
Services will be held at the Jeffries and Keates Funeral Home in Northfield, NJ for immediate family.
