Doris A. Gangi passed away suddenly on Nov. 3, 2017. A long time resident of Fairfax County, she was a devoted and beloved mother, grandmother, and aunt. She was also a past realtor & working supporter of her husband’s many business ventures. She is survived by her son, Edward Gangi (Jr.), and her daughter, Monique Gangi Dowd-Kovach and son-in-law, Mark Kovach. Also by her six grandchildren she worshipped: Ashley Dowd, Mitch Dowd, Jessica Dowd, Marissa Kovach, Julianna Kovach & Allyson Czarnaski. And by a myriad of nieces & nephews all over the globe, who loved their “Taunte Dodo/Auntie Doris.” She was predeceased by husband, Edward N. Gangi, and sadly also by her youngest son, who died in 1972, Steven Michael Gangi. She was an amazing character of a woman who was both joyous and suffered great hardships but showered every single person she knew with immense quantities of love, devotion, and prayers for their well being on a daily basis. She was deeply intertwined in the lives of every single one of her immediate and extended family members all over the globe and her many loved ones are devastated by her loss. She will be more than missed, but the gifts she gave to all with her spirit will live on forever. She was put simply, a legend. Visitation on Wed. Nov.8 at 6-8 pm, and funeral visitation on Thurs Nov. 9 at 10:00 am; service at 10:30, at Demaines Funeral Home in Fairfax City, Va.
