Dorothy Anglos - JOHNSON CITY
Dorothy C. Anglos, 81, passed away in her home on Tuesday morning, November 30, after an extended illness.
She was born in Creston, Ohio, on November 13, 1929. Born to immigrant Greek parents, she was adopted shortly after birth and moved frequently while growing up in rural northeastern Ohio. She attended Wooster College with a focus in microbiology. After relocations to Louisville, New York City and Columbus, Ohio, she settled in Johnson City in 1965. Since the late 1980s, she has lived in Jonesborough at Academy Hill.
Over the years, she worked as a radio announcer, lab technician, technical writer, travel agent and various administrative positions. After 20 years of service at the ETSU Sherrod Library, she retired as Head of the Circulation Department in September 1993.
Throughout her life she enjoyed — and was proficient at — a variety of arts and crafts: acting, piano, writing, furniture refinishing and upholstery, quilting, fashion design, drawing, ethnic cuisine, and exquisite specialty crafts such as inlaid boxes and Ukrainian eggs.
She was a gifted actress, involved for years with Johnson City Community Theater and was featured in Tusculum College's production of "Hidden Heroines of Northeast Tennessee: the First Stories." She more recently participated as a standardized patient in training medical students at the Quillen-Dishner College.
Charismatic, beautiful and uniquely stylish, she will always be remembered for her avid curiosity, intelligence and sharp wit.
A worldly person, she also cherished the quiet of her beloved condo. She loved watching movies, tennis and football. She delighted in the ferns and birds out her window. And for three decades, she adored a succession of Siamese kitties.
She is survived and will be deeply missed by two daughters, Helen Anglos. of Brattleboro, Vermont, and Chris Puckett, of Bloomington, Indiana; one son, Phil Moldovan, of Erwin, Tennessee; and three grandsons, Evan Plunkett, Ryan Plunkett, and Alex Puckett.
There will be a private memorial service held for family and friends.
