Patsy “Pat” Dimitriou went to be with our Lord on Friday, October 6, 2023. Pat is survived by her husband of 61 years Angelo, brother James Minovsky, two sons James (Mary Jean) and Peter, grandson Angelo Jene (Veronica), granddaughter Nicolette Jean and four month old great-grandson Moses James.
In her younger days, Pat was a longtime active member of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Philoptochos (Friends of the Poor) organization. In fact, during the 1970s-1980s she led the Baklava making effort for ten consecutive years in the annual fall bake sale. Pat also taught second grade Sunday school for five years.
Pat was a spectacular cook! She could cook anything: all kinds of delicious meals, desserts and special cakes like baked Alaska, zucchini nut bread, baklava, you name it. Everyone loved her creations.
In her latter years she suffered serious pains from incurable inflammatory arthritis and type II diabetes. As a result, she had to gradually curtail her physical activities: going for 3 mile walks, and playing tennis and golf. Her arthritic pains became more severe with age and her mobility was reduced to a walker and a wheelchair. Her reduced mobility affected the rest of her body and brought on more pains and joint aches. That led to her recent prolonged hospitalization and various new ailments. She fought valiantly and overcame a number of them including a cardiac arrest with 12 rib fractures. When she was subsequently asked by her pain doctor if she would like to be resuscitated again in the event she had another heart failure, her immediate response was: Yes, I want to live!
Pat was also a generous and giving person. She welcomed needy people into her home and sent monetary donations to her needy relatives in her former home country of Northern Macedonia.
May the Lord bless her soul and grant her eternal painless peace!
