Dorothy C. Pappas

AGE: 81 • Ft. Myers, FL

Dorothy C. (Rangazas) Pappas died peacefully on Monday, April 7, 2014 in her room at Barrington Terrace of Ft. Myers, Florida. She was 81. Dorothy was born in St. Louis, Missouri and spent most of her childhood in Korifi, Greece, before returning to the United States for high school. She then resided in New Haven, Connecticut with her family before attending St. Basil Teaching Academy. In 1956, she married the love of her life and they were blessed shortly thereafter by their only daughter, who was the light of their life. Dorothy was a devoted wife and mother and was a respected Greek school teacher and Sunday school teacher at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Piscataway, NJ where she was admired by her colleagues and students. Dorothy was a very active member of the Ladies Philoptochos Society and Daughters of Penelope.

Dorothy will be dearly missed by all who knew her and loved her. Predeceased by her loving husband, Dr. Constantine Pappas of Edison, NJ, she is survived by her only child, Joyce Vivian Kopidakis; her son-in-law Dr. George E. Kopidakis; two adoring granddaughters - Nicole Marianna Kopidakis and Victoria Theodora Kopidakis; her brother Geroge C. Rangazas, his wife Inga, their daughter Vassiliki, as well as her sister Phaedra and her husband Dr. Frank T. Shively.

Dorothy was a very proud woman, full of dignity. Once that dignity was taken from her, she surrendered to the Lord. May she find eternal peace along with her beloved husband and dear friends.

Visitation will be Friday from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, 1101 River Road, Piscataway followed by a 10:00 AM service at the church. Burial will follow in Van Liew Cemetery in North Brunswick. Arrangements are under the direction of Selover Funeral Home, North Brunswick. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the St. George Church Memorial Fund.
