Dorothy “Dorica” Sarandos (nee Horvat), entered God’s loving arms surrounded by her family on Monday August 31, 2020 at the age of 77. Beloved wife of George. They celebrated 53 years of marriage on August 27, 2020. Devoted and loving daughter to Margaret. Loving mom and best friend of Pamela and Diana. Adoring “mother-in-da-law” of Michael. Proud Baka of George, Aris, Eleni and Theodore. Fortunately, she was able to celebrate her mother’s 100th birthday this past July. She will also be missed by her brothers-in-law, Peter, Theodore and Andy, and sisters-in-law, Annette (Stavros), Vaso, Eleni (Thanasis), Vicki and Dorothaya. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved.
Dorothy was born in Kotiriba, Croatia (formerly Yugoslavia) and immigrated to the United States in 1961. Dorothy spent time in Greece after her marriage and learned the language and customs, which she proudly exemplified for her daughters and extended family. She was part of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church community for over 50 years. Her greatest joy was to spend time with her four grandchildren, whom she saw daily and lovingly cooked and cared for unconditionally.
