Artemis Kokinos passed away at the age of 100 on October 6, 2017.

She was a teacher in the Fresno Unified School District for 40 years, serving in the primary grades at Webster School, where she began her career, and later at Mayfair School. She also served as the school orchestra director and was an accomplished pianist herself, providing piano lessons for many private students.

She was born in San Francisco on June 30, 1917 and came to Fresno in 1923, when her father participated in the founding of St. George Greek Orthodox Church. Artemis was a lifelong member of that church, where she attended regularly with her late sister, Grace Christian. For the past four years, Artemis was a resident of Nazareth House in Fresno, where she enjoyed the lovely gardens and the attentions of the caring and supportive staff.

A Graveside Service will be held on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Belmont Memorial Park.

The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, remembrances be made to the Employee Christmas Fund at Nazareth House, 2121 No. First St., Fresno 93703.
