Georgiana (Mattar) Rihbany, of West Roxbury, formerly of Roslindale, passed away on February 26, 2021. She was 89 years old.
Georgiana was born in Boston, and was the beloved daughter of the late Wadie and Sadie (Abraham) Mattar. She was the dear and devoted wife of fifty one years to the late Fred “Frisky” Rihbany, who preceded her in 2006. Georgiana was the beloved mother of Fred W. Rihbany of Roslindale, and Mary Sanchez and her husband Robert Sanchez of CA., and the cherished grandmother, “Sitoo,” of Amanda Sanchez and Daniel Sanchez of CA., and she will be sorely missed by them all. She was the dear sister of the late Malbena Chiotasso, James Mattar, Mitchell Mattar, and her twin brother, George Mattar. She is also survived by George’s wife, Carol Mattar, and several loving nieces and nephews.
Georgiana will always be remembered as an exceptionally loving, kind, and generous woman who always put others before herself. Her family and friends were her world, and she devoted her life to them. She is extremely loved, and will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
Due to Covid restrictions, a private celebration of life is to be planned at a later date.
