Marie J. Drossos, 64

June 14, 2017

Marie J. Drossos, 64, of Lancaster, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 in Boise City, OK.
She was the wife of the late Constantine G. “Gus” Drossos, who passed away in 1998. Born in Manhattan, NY, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Catherine Sorrie Dulmovits.
Marie had just recently retired last month as office manager at Fidevia, where she had worked for the past 15 years. She enjoyed her job at Fidevia and truly loved her coworkers. In years past, she had also been a homemaker and worked at Fulton Bank.
A 1970 graduate of Mother Cabrini High School in New York City, she also graduated from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
Always thinking of others, and always with a giving heart, Marie had a vibrant personality which drew others toward her. She loved to travel, was a great cook with many specialties and liked to swim. Her greatest treasure was her family, whom she loved dearly.
Marie was a member of St. Philip The Apostle Catholic Church.
She is survived by her son, James M. Drossos of Lancaster, her grandson Kody Drossos, her sister-in-law Mary Lou Drossos, and her cousins: Emma Dulmovits, Susan Stauffer, Jim Donnelly, Michele Yorke, Michael Drossos, George Drossos, Nicholas Drossos, and Jeannine Wright.
Friends will be received on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 2-4PM and 7-9PM at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA. Friends may call again on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 10-11AM at St. Philip The Apostle Catholic Church, 2111 Millersville Pike, Millersville, PA, with the Mass to follow at 11AM. Interment in Millersville Mennonite Cemetery.

You probably don’t remember me. I took care of your dad Gus and became friends with your mom. I am sorry for your loss. Roseann romito

James, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom.  I know that you will miss her greatly.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to not only work with her but to also become close to your family and am honored to have had her as my Matron of Honor in my wedding.  We shared so many laughs and good times.  I am so thankful for the memories I have.  While I’m so disappointed that she was taken from all of us far too soon, I am comforted to know that she is with your dad; your mom loved & missed her dear Gus so much.  RIP sweet, sweet Marie till we meet again.
~The life given to us by nature is short, but the memories of a life well spent is eternal~
