Greek islander famous for nursing refugee baby dies aged 90

An elderly Greek islander who unwillingly gained international fame for helping newly landed refugees at the height of Europe's immigration crisis has died aged 90

The United Nations refugee agency expressed sorrow at Lesbos resident Maritsa Mavrapidou's death Wednesday. It called her an "international symbol of solidarity" in a statement late Thursday

The three women and other Lesbos residents were reportedly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016 for their compassion toward arriving migrants.

Mavrapidou never felt comfortable with her fame, arguing that she had only done the decent thing.
