Edna Nichopoulos Dies
I was saddened to receive a message in the early hours of this morning informing me of the passing of Edna Nichopoulos, wife of the late George (Dr. Nick) Nichpopoulos.
Elvis adored Edna and loved her cooking, and I was also privileged to get to know this witty lady over the past few years. Although dementia was already apparent, I still saw Edna’s fun side (and was aware of her fiery temper) many times in Memphis. We went to dinner and she even attended a couple of Essential Elvis UK events during which she enjoyed telling us some great stories.
I know that she suffered greatly after losing her husband just over a year ago, and we’ve lost another person in close connection with Elvis. I really liked Edna, and I’m sad to see her go.
Our thoughts are with her children – Dean, Kissy and Elaine, and her granddaughter – Lexi.
