Urrata, Dorita Dorita Holland Urrata died on April 8, 2014 at Yale New Haven Hospital. Born in Greenwich on February 6, 1939, she is survived by her children Jim of Greenwich, Sylvia of Morton, PA and Robert and his wife Liz Wood of Northford, 5 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, her former husband Joe and her beloved dogs. Also survived by her lifelong friends Anne and Todd Kennedy and many others from around the world. Dorita graduated from Eden Hall in 1957. As a young mother she worked with the newly formed G.A.R.C. to eliminate the stigma and prevent the institutionalization of young children with intellectual disabilities. Building on her love of sailing, she later enjoyed a career as a yacht broker and in recent years founded and ran two charitable organizations. Nutmeg Golden Rescue focused on re-homing Golden Retrievers (although she never met a dog she could refuse). Children's Chance CT had the mission of obtaining free medical care in the U.S. for children from developing nations with complex medical issues. As a young child during WWII, Dorita was interned at the University of Santo Tomas concentration camp in Manila, Philippines. She was held prisoner of war by Japanese forces from 1941-1945 during their occupation of the country. She credited her Filipino friends and neighbors with saving her life by providing necessary food and other items at great risk to themselves. As a way to repay that kindness, she has worked especially hard to provide care for Filipino children, and in 2008 she was honored by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the Presidential Palace in Manila for her charitable works. Through Children's Chance, Dorita developed friendships with a wildly diverse group of people from all over the world. Described by more than one friend as "spirited" she will be surely missed for her tenacity, compassion and ability to match those in need with those that give. A memorial service will be held at noon on Friday April 25, 2014 at Second Congregational Church 139 E. Putnam Avenue Greenwich, CT. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: Opreationsmile.org Northbranfordunleashed.com Finalfarewell.org or the charity of one's choice. Read Obituary
