Dorothea "Dottie" Surma

October 4, 1927 ~ November 8, 2020 (age 93)


Dorothea ‘Dottie’ Surma, age 93, was called home to her Lord and Savior on November 8th, 2020. 

A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11 AM Saturday, November 21, 2020 at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church, 3903 Lake Street, Bridgman. Online Condolences accepted at www.PikeFH.com

Dottie was born and raised in Chicago’s Roseland neighborhood where she met her husband. They both shared a love for the southwest Michigan lakeshore where they made frequent trips before finding their home in Bridgman in 1980. They were both very involved in their church, she sang in the choir, and he played the organ. She worked at Weko Beach for many years where she loved meeting and greeting visitors.

She is survived by her two sisters Christine (Joseph) Gillette and Joann Pochron, and many nieces, nephews, and friends that will miss her laugh, wit, and heart of gold.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Thaddeus Surma.  She was also preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Mary Pochron, her brother, Harry Pochron, sisters, Dolores Seifert, and Irene Rehak, her niece, Audrey. Dottie is no doubt having quite the homecoming in Heaven.

Arrangements entrusted to Pike Funeral and Cremation Services, 9191 Red Arrow Hwy, Bridgman.
