AUBURN — Maria Andrianos, 89, of Auburn, died Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice, surrounded by her loving family.

Kingstown, R.I., and Theodora Medouris-Hartford and husband, Jeremy, of Portland; a great-grandson, Jackson Angelo Medouris; two sisters, Sophia Tragus and Panayoula Koumoutsos, both of Greece; and many nieces and nephews.
