Kiki, the daughter of the late Helen Boolookos Christopulos and the late Antony Christopulos, was born in Oceanside, New York and she and her family lived in various places throughout the United States. In 1991, she returned to Linden, New Jersey where she resided until 2011, when she moved to Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
Throughout her working career, Kiki was a “Jack of all trades”! For example, she owned a horticultural business in New York called “Living Designs” and Kiki owned and operated a diet center while living in Texas. Her skillset included being a hairdresser, a trade that she worked at for many years, in a variety of locations. Kiki was also gifted in her knowledge and work in interior design.
She was a member of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Philoptochos, a ladies society of the church, as well as, a member of the book club of the Scotch Plains library. Kiki enjoyed doing mediation with the Buddhist monks in the Dhammakaya International Meditation Center in Fanwood. She was definitely a choc-a-holic, preferring to indulge in anything milk chocolate. In her earlier travels that added to her love of horticulture, Kiki had been a docent in a Japanese Tea Garden in Tennessee. Above all else, she was an advocate for all!
Predeceased by her husband, Michael W. Micek in 2011 and her brother, Gregory Christopulos in 1979, Kiki is survived by her daughter, Dianna K. Micek and her fiancé, Stephanie Todeschini; her sister, Diane Garuffi and her husband, Steven and her two nieces, Alexandria and Eleni.
Kiki was a force unto herself and as individual as they come. She was truly a free spirit who had an amazing amount of love for her family and friends. Kiki will be deeply missed, but she will forever be carried in the hearts of those she loved and those who loved her.
