Christina Rozeas, Author And Educator, Was 35


Christina Rozeas, a lifelong resident of Whitestone and College Point, passed away on July 21 after a long illness. Rozeas is survived by her husband John, her parents, two sisters and grandmother. She was 35 years old. Rozeas was a graduate of St. John’s University with a Master’s of Science in School Counseling, and worked in the New York City public school system. In 2012, Christina authored the acclaimed book, “Greeks In Queens,” published by Arcadia Publishing. In the years following the publication of that book she appeared at local historical societies, including the Queens Historical Society, Bayside Historical Society and the Poppenhusen Institute in College Point, educating people about the proud history of Greek Americans and their journey as immigrants in the borough of Queens during the past 100 years. A proud godmother, Christina also authored a children’s book entitled, “Where Did All The Cookies Go?” In July of 2014, Christina gave one of her final presentations at the Poppenhusen Institute, during its salute to Greek Americans festival. “It is important to remember the struggle that our family members went through in their journey from their homeland to a strange and completely foreign world,” said Rozeas. In 2011, she was a contributing reporter for the Gazette. In this hour of sorrow, the Gazette mourns with the Rozeas family and friends at the passing of such a young talent and respected member of the community.
