They moved in a very sociable set, composed of their own young Greek cousins. They had cars, sophistication and some affluence. Lili travelled abroad frequently, both with her family and with friends. She was active in the Melbourne Greek community and was a member of the International Club and the Greek Red Cross. Letho passed away in 1964 and from 1966 onwards Lili divided her time between Melbourne and Greece. She passed away in Melbourne in the 1990s.
