Cassowary Coast Regional Council Mayor had the honour of presenting his mother Angela Kremastos with congratulatory messages from Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Member for Kennedy Bob Katter for her 90th birthday on Monday (September 2).
Around 50 friends and family from as far as Sydney and Cairns gathered at Warrina Aged Care in Innisfail to wish the tireless community worker, and ‘second mother’ to many a young local over the years, a happy birthday.
In her younger days, Mrs Kremastos was a cheerful volunteer for Brothers Rugby League, Southern Suburbs Rugby League Football Club, Junior Rugby League, Innisfail Lions club, Innisfail schools and the Greek Orthodox Church of the Dormition of Our Lady. She was president of the Greek Orthodox Philoptohos Ladies Innisfail for many years and was made a life member for her selfless service to the social welfare support organisation.
Mrs Kremastos was born in Ingham on September 2, 1929. She was living in Babinda where her parents had two cafes, including the White Rose, when she married Innisfail builder Michael Kremastos. The couple had four children, including their son John who is the first mayor of Greek descent in the region. She has 11 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Mr Kremastos senior passed away in 2007.
