Respecting the family’s wishes, I write now, with very deep sorrow to inform you that Matti Egon, passed away peacefully in Athens, early on Wednesday morning, 14th October.
Matti was the Founder of the extended GACUK “family” and its major donor, a Great Lady, a great philanthropist. Her presence, kindness and hospitality made each of our events unforgettable. She was passionate about her homeland’s cultural heritage, a lover of arts and education. Her driving force was an inspiration to our Committee and we are determined to continue GACUK’s work.
We will miss her very much, as will her very wide circle of friends in Athens and London.
I am sure that each one of us, in our own way, would now wish to offer sympathy and support to Matti’s family.
Due to the pandemic restrictions, the funeral will be attended by very close family members only.
