A Hallam family brought together its eldest and youngest members for the first time on Saturday 12 August.
Marie Doucas told the Journal News that Katherine Moustaizis and her husband Aristithe, now deceased, came to Australia from Egypt in the early 1970s with their daughter, Evangeline.
Katherine is now 90 and lived in Dandenong for 20 years before moving to the Coptic Village Hostel in Hallam two years ago.
She has five grandchildren in Chris, Angela, Alex, Andrew and Michael; five great-grandchildren in Gabrielle, Mary, Helen, Sebastian and Thomas; and one great, great-granddaughter, Ruby.
Anastasia Doucas and her husband Sebastian are grandparents to Katherine’s great-grandchildren and great grandparents to Ruby.
“They have lived in Dandenong and Narre Warren for 40 years,” Marie said.
“They arrived in Australia in 1968 when Chris was one year old and then went on to have Angela, who passed away in 2009.”
Marie married Chris, and they’re parents to Gabrielle and Sebastian and have lived in Narre Warren and Cranbourne North for the past 30 years.
“Gabrielle and her partner Michael welcomed Ruby into the family on 11 May 2017,” Marie said.
“She was born premature and spent the first 13 weeks in Monash NICU and Special Care Nursery and was finally able to come home on 2 August.
“It was a very emotional day and full of happiness for the family to be able to take Ruby to meet her great great-grandmother.”
