I met Marina Sempeles on August 10, 1971 on my very first day of work at the Winchester Surgical Clinic, where she was a terrific nurse for many years. She was as kind and sweet to me on that day as she was on my last day six years later. I loved Marina and I am shocked to hear that she has passed. I wish I could have spoken to her again because she was one of my favorite people. I told her that. She was one of my Mentors in my life and I often thought of her on a regular basis hoping I had become half the wonderful woman that she was. My memories will forever be that her George sang at our wedding in 1977 and she was proud of his beautiful talent. Also, from early fall through spring she wore a scart of some kind around her neck to give herself color. As she said goodbye each day after working so long and hard, she would apply pretty pink lipstick and a pretty scarf of some kind around her neck to greet George when she arrived home from work. She alwlays spoke highly of him, Eleni and her grandchildren. Never a negative word from Marina about anyone in all the years I've known her. She was a wonderful role model for women of all ages and she was lovely. I loved her low, deep voice, her love of the whole Greek Church and her Greek relatives and I loved to make her laugh. I cannot believe such a LIGHT is gone from our world. We'll remember you always, Marina ! Love, Pam (and Mitch) Orndorff

I met Marina when I started working at Winchester Surgical Clinic. She was an awesome co worker and a very dear friend. She was my rock and shoulder to cry on through many difficult times, she was an angel right here on earth. I will always remember her laugh it was infectious and would make everyone smile. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May your wonderful memories you cherish get you through this difficult time . She will be deeply missed by everyone. Love Michelle

We scrubbed and circulated many cases with Marina in the ortho service at Winchester Medical Center between 1992 and 2004. Marina was a wonderful mentor for new staff, and well liked by her peers and comrades in the OR. Her physicians relied on her and trusted her to help us make surgery go smoothly. We missed her when she retired, and we know you will miss her now more than we ever did. Sending our thoughts and prayers for your comfort - Jay and Gilda Gilbert, RNs.

I knew Marina from working with her @ WSC;she was always very nice to me and she was Dr Daughtry's right hand assistant. Marina gave me little hints on medical terminology and helped me whenever she could. I loved her "Baklava". I had not seen her in several years ,Marina was a special lady I will miss her. She would tell me stories of George and her family and how the grandkids were doing.My prayers and thoughts are with you ,and let her memory comfort you. God Bless for she is home singing with the angels.. Delisa & Wayne Sturtz . .
