Obituary, Florida Times-Union, November 18, 2012
Dorothy Raizis, 93, passed away October 19, 2012 after a battle with Alzheimers. Loving care by Sandra and Jay gave Miss Dottie a peaceful life for the last 7 months. They restored her humor she so wished for on her journey to the great sewing room in the sky.

Miss Dottie was born in Canada to Frances and John Warner and raised in Seattle, WA with her 5 sisters, all deceased. Married to U. S. Navy Warrant Officer, Peter Raizis, the couple had two children and moved to Northampton, Ma. where Peter was assigned as a Navy recruiter in his hometown. After 20 years of military service, the family moved to Jacksonville, Fl. in 1954. Peter was employed by the U.S. Civil Service at Jacksonville NAS until his retirement.

Miss Dottie was employed in Bishop Kenny High School's cafeteria as the Lunch Cart Lady in the courtyard where she thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories with students.

Mr. Pete preceded her in death in June 1990. Alas, he never returned to Miss Dottie from his last voyage out to sea, where his cremains were scattered. Therefore, their dual service will be held at Veteran's Memorial Cemetery, in Jacksonville on December 4 at 10:00a.m.

The couple was preceded in death by son-in-law Gerald Marhefka and grandson Matthew Marhefka. Survivors include daughter Lucy Marhefka, son Ronald Raizis, grandchildren Michael and Mark Marhefka, Jennifer and Peter Raizis, great-grandchildren Andrew, Matthew, Rebecca, and Benjamin Marhefka, and Nathan, Aaron and Alexander Lee.

Dottie was the best baker on Planters Road. She told the best stories and served as a stepmom to me and Mikey. Every time I see a Christmas present I will think of her wrapping and tying bows at the Thom McAn Shoe Store at Southgate Plaza. I bet she's ...(Read more)
