Peter Milteadon Fund

 

Peter and Florence Milteadon were born on the historic Greek Island of Mytilene. Peter was born on July 27, 1908 and Florence was born on Valentine’s Day in 1922. When the couple immigrated to the United States, they chose Davenport, IA as their home. Peter and Florence became members of St. George Greek Orthodox Church and eventually were married there.

The Milteadon family owned and operated the Iowa Motel, which was at the intersection of Kimberly Road and Brady Street. The entire family took part in running the business. The family's religious devotion prompted them to begin a fund that would assist two churches in the Quad City area. It was Peter who established a trust to benefit St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Rock Island and Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in East Moline, IL.

After Peter passed away on November 19, 1984, Florence sold the motel and their house. She built herself a home in Davenport, where she lived for many years until she passed away. The Community Foundation is pleased to work with the Milteadon family to help them achieve their charitable dreams.

"Mary and I have been interested in the issue of hunger in the Quad Cities for many, many years. It is great to be able to have an impact."
