Jennifer Kourembis, 99, of Laguna Woods, CA died peacefully at her home on Thursday, April 7, 2022. Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, she was the daughter of the late Athanasios and Eleni (Vroustouris) Kourembis. She graduated from Lowell High School and Lowell Commercial College. She embarked on her career in Lowell and soon accepted a position at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. Her expemplary work led to her accepting a position with the State Department in Washington, D.C. after which she completed a 25-year career with the CIA. Although she traveled extensively in her role with the CIA, her major assignments were based in Washington, D.C. and Athens, Greece. She was proud to have served her country and remained a patriot to the end of her life. After retiring from the CIA, she and her sister Mary lived in Arlington, Virginia before relocating to Laguna Woods, CA in 1986. She was an active member of St. Sophia Cathedral in Washington, D.C. and later St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church in Irvine, CA where she was a member of the Ladies Philoptochos Society and the Ambassadors Senior Group.

To her family she was a loving sister and aunt, leaving many beautiful memories and a void that will not be filled. Jennifer had a passion for the arts and enjoyed painting, doing crafts and sewing. She loved to travel, was an avid reader, and loved tending to her plants. Her energy was infectious. She was loved, respected, and will be greatly missed.
