Holley: Doris I. “Dorie” Rodas, age 89, went to be with the Lord on April 5, 2022. She was born January 31, 1933 to the late Arthur and Lillian (Moore) Youngs, the middle child out of 17 siblings.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Donald, son Marty, siblings, Hugh “Ted”, Arthur “Sonny”, Vivian Soule, Donald, Louise Restivo, Marion Ebbs, William, John “Bud”, Lorraine Craig, Loretta Durant, James, Robert, Thomas, and Bruce.
Dorie’s children and grandchildren were her life. She was so proud of all of them. She helped raise most of her grandchildren as she was very active in their lives. She never missed an event or celebration. Besides enjoying her family, Dorie enjoyed going to work every day. She worked for GE, Holley HS cafeteria, Arby’s, and again, HS cafeteria where her grandchildren attended. She was a dedicated worker, working diligently until her retirement at 80! She only retired because her Rheumatoid Arthritis got the best of her feet and hands. Shortly, thereafter, dementia was another issue she was dealing with. She was our hero, never complaining about her ailments. She was the toughest woman we know. Dorie loved playing Bingo and could be found in the local Bingo Halls enjoying the game with her friends/family – one of many “experts”.
Dorie is survived by her daughters, Debbie (Chris) Reynolds, Donna (Tim) Bopp, Vicki Harris, grandchildren, Sean Rodas, Patrick Rodas, Michelle (Adam) Huck, Matthew (Nicole) Morgan, Jesse (Kayleigh) Bopp, Jayme (Brian) Woodin, Steven (Sheila) Rodas, Cory Rodas, Amber Rodas, 12 great-grandchildren, siblings, Phyllis Benson, and Frances “Frankie” Strange, as well as, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
The family will receive friends at the Christopher Mitchell Funeral Home, 16650 State Route 31 Holley, NY 14470 on April 16th from 10am – 12pm her funeral service will follow at 12:00pm.
