January 1, 1949 - December 30, 2021
Dorica Maria Scobercea was born in Romania on January 1st, 1949 to Dr. Ilie and Maria Arcan. The oldest of two daughters, the other being Stela, she attended the University of Timisoara and received her degree in Accounting. After marrying George Scobercea, a mechanical engineer, in 1969 she began working for the Timisoara Bank of Investments.
In 1983, she immigrated to the United States and settled in Chicago, Illinois with her husband and two sons, Sebastian and Razvan. A third son, Andrew John, was later born. She became a proud American citizen and worked as a data entry supervisor for many years at IB Diffusion. She was especially proud that two of her sons followed in her father’s footsteps and became doctors.
Once her career ended she began assisting in the raising of her six grandchildren, James, Lucas, Eleanor, Charles, Lucy, and Catherine. Her sons, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren were her greatest joys. An amazing cook and baker, she enjoyed feeding her entire family as often as possible, especially around the holidays.
She was very active in her local Baptist church and even served as the President of the Women’s Ministry of the Romanian Baptist Association of the United States and Canada. After the entire family moved to Houston, Texas in 2007 she continued as an active member of her local church.
Her family will miss her food, her smile, and her love. A fighter to the end, she was truly one of a kind and can never be replaced.
