Athena Spyropoulos was a much-loved member of our Marrickville community. Athena and her husband Aristomenis migrated to Australia in the 1960s and established their Athena Cake Shop in Marrickville in 1974. The Athena Cake Shop quickly developed a loyal following and established a fine reputation for always delivering delicious Greek sweets and pastries that continues today. Many family milestones, be it birthdays, weddings or christenings were made complete by one of Athena's mouth-watering cakes. Athena's legacy extends beyond the delightful confections she crafted with precision and passion. Her warm smile, generous spirit, and unwavering commitment to quality made Athena Cake Shop a cornerstone of our community and brought Greek culture to so many people. Athena and Aristomenis not only built a business but also their family here in Marrickville, raising their two children Efy and Kosmos. In recognition of Athena's indelible mark on our community, we extend our deepest condolences to Aristomenis, Efy and Kosmos, their families and her many friends. Vale Athena.
