Theofista "Alice" Pergakis celebrated her 100th birthday on April 24 at Palm Center in Chelmsford. Alice is a Lowell native and referred to lovingly by many as "Yia Yia," the Greek phrase for grandmother. She is active at her church, and enjoys crocheting, listening to Greek music and, most of all, visits from her family. She is a very special lady who is greatly admired and respected.
