Dorcas Latisha Pindar

Dorcas Letitia Pindar nee Violet Katie Dillon, age 93 of Ocoee, FL passed away Saturday, May 26, 2018.  She was born on January 22, 1925 to William and Rebecca Dillon in Friendship Village on the East Coast of Demerara, Guyana.

She was affectionately known to many as Violet or Aunty Katie, and was one of seven children. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Patricia Canterbury, her grandsons, Mark, Jason and Andrew, her foster son, Linden and a great granddaughter, Cara. She was preceded in death by her husband, George E. Pindar.

George E. Pindar and Violet Katie DIllon were married on December 29th, 1962. They lived in Meadowbrook Gardens, Georgetown, before moving to the USA and spent many years together living in Brooklyn, NY.

Dorcus believed in faith and community. She was an ardent worker who had a great love for God and was a devout member of St. Augustine’s Anglican Church in Friendship, Guyana. She also held regular bible study meetings at her home and gave many hours of service to charitable organizations such as the Mother’s Union which supported family life and the Women’s Institute, where she taught different skills to women such as craft, cooking, baking, knitting and crochet. She also attended the Senior Citizens' Club in New York and Florida.

She was a caterer in her community for many years and was often called upon to make cakes for weddings and specials occasions. She taught catering classes for her community. But most importantly, “Auntie Katie”  was considered a mother to all and cared deeply for everyone she knew, whether you were her family, friend, neighbor or a member of the community. She was always willing to help out someone in need. Everybody’s child was her child.

Dorcas was a people's person with a friendly personality who enjoyed a very social life and loved to laugh. Her house was always filled with family, friends and laughter. Friends who visited her house were treated as family. She was very selfless and always had time for others. She always had a good word of advice to share. She was often surrounded by her family especially her nieces & nephews. There was never a dull moment when she was around.   Her surviving family members, daughter Patricia Canterbury; foster son Linden Fung; grandsons Mark, Jason and Andrew Cyrus; great granddaughter Cara Cyrus and many nieces, nephews and sorrowing friends.

We will all miss her.

May her soul rest in peace and rise in glory.
