Dora was the most adventurous traveller I have ever met. She could talk to and befriend anyone; she could find her way anywhere; she could adapt to any conditions without a complaint. But what I found most wonderful about Dora was her insatiable curiosity and interest in so many things. Dora was a citizen of the world. At the same time, she was a devoted daughter. Her family was so important to her and she spoke of you all often. I am so sorry to learn of her suffering and passing. The world has lost a very special person. I will always remember her.

Dora was one of the first people that we met when we moved to Australia. From a work colleague, she quickly became a friend and then family. We got to know her family, bushwalk and travel with her, and enjoy food and good company. Dora had a presence and energy that filled the room. She was passionate about life and as a teacher, she passed her passion and knowledge to countless many. She connected with children and the young, her humour, agility, and mischief being appreciated by them. Dora's spirit wasn’t dimmed by the illness and her loss is difficult to comprehend. Our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

To her extended family, aunties, uncles and cousins, friends, and God children ζωή σε σας. Αιωνία της η μνήμη και καλό παράδεισο.

It was with deep sorrow that I learnt in Greece of Dora's death, and I felt that I had to write a few words.
Knowing Dora while I was living in Australia, as part of the Greek community, as relatives and as University students striving for our degree, I have but the fondest memories of a strong-willed, dynamic, brave, outspoken and a nonconformist person who stood up for her beliefs but who simultaneously was generous, gentle,caring and supportive and a great teacher.
I greatly admired Dora for her dynamic character and will always remember her.
My deepest sympathies and condolences to Con ,Athie and extended family. May her memory be eternal and may she rest in peace.

Dora, I thank you from the first day we met at the age of 5 to the last day we were together only a week ago. You held my hand on that first day at Birchgrove Public School and became my friend and educator as I couldn’t speak, read or write English when I began school, who would have known that it would become your passion and profession.
You held my hand only a few days ago 55 years later smiling just as you did when we were 5 but this time your eyes were filled with sadness. You have been part of my life all my life and I’m finding it hard to let you go! Dora, you were the most argumentative, feistiest, adventurous, caring, loving, generous and devoted person I know and it has been my great fortune to have been part of your life. I have shared your sorrows and known your family, we have laughed and cried together.
My heart is heavy but my memory is long, I miss you but know I will never forget you.

To Con, Athie and the extended family, we are all blessed to have had Dora in our lives.
Dora know you were loved by everyone whose life you touched. Love you, miss you, I will remember you, Dora Christodoulou.

Dearest Dora, in heaven you are as I write with tears swelling in my eyes. I remember our days in High School. What wonderful years! Us Greek girls made lots of friendships which are more precious as each day goes by....
I also remember the day you were told the news back in 1975 that your Dad passed away. I have a vision of standing in the school’s hallway on our way to Maths. It was the very first time death had touched me.
You carried the flag for your Dad back then as you have shown taking care of your mum, battling at the same time your biggest challenge. You fought, you fought hard.
However, there is a phrase (which I am trying to remember) and it goes somewhat like this, it’s not the years in your life but the life in your years that matter. Your life proved what a wonderful world we have and you were in all the right places, appreciating with your generosity the gift of life......
To all your family and friends, your life should be celebrated, as there will not be another Dora Lafkas like you.
Eternal your memory..

It is very sad to learn that Miss Lafkas has left us. My name is Trinh Huynh who represents some of her Marrickville High school students in the year 1986-1987.
We would like to send our deepest condolences to Miss Lafkas’ family. It is very hard to accept that she is longer present with us. We are sure that she will be deeply remembered by each of us who had once knew Miss Lafkas. Wishing her soul will Rest In Peace and pass down her energy to help her family be stronger to go through the most hardest time of their lives.

REMEMBERING DORA - from her Canadian-Italian friend April, 25, 2020
My deepest condolences go out Dora’s family and friends. As much as her passing means the end of her suffering, it’s still hard to accept the loss of such a dynamic and cherished person.
I was so saddened when I called last week but Dora was too sick to talk. During our last video chat, Dora told me the doctors had pretty much exhausted all possible treatments and without saying it, she implied her time here was very limited. So the news was not a big shock, but I wish I had been able to have at least one more conversation. I would have said how glad I was to be her friend and to have shared so many wonderful experiences over the years. I know she would have liked to reminisce a bit about all the good times we had. In spite of the huge distance and some big time gaps, we managed to maintain a strong bond. Travelling together and sharing some amazing experiences will do that.
When she came to visit her Canadian friends in 2018, who could have imagined the health challenges this vibrant, energetic person would have ahead. Ever the intrepid traveller, she wanted to tick off a few more things on her “bucket list” – like touring around Cuba (in a not very functional vehicle) – and seeing the Aurora Borealis - which wasn’t possible, on short notice, but opting instead for her second choice: a long train ride through the snowy Canadian countryside to the Atlantic coast to taste Nova Scotian lobster. She always made the most of what was possible.
Dora’s passion for exploring and her fearlessness was infectious – as anyone who travelled or trekked with her would know. I have so many memorable moments from our travels together : Greece and Turkey in ‘97 – then Tuscany, Amalfi and Sicily in 2011. I felt so honoured to be welcomed by the Lafkas family in the little village near Monemvasia for the ceremonial digging up of the bones of Dora’s grandmother. What a privilege to be part of this two day ritual. So many more memories: the wild bus ride through the mountains of Turkey toward Pamukkale when Dora and I had to keep talking loudly so the bus driver, who was nodding off, wouldn’t fall asleep and send us into a ravine.
We shared the same taste in food. Grilled barbouni and greens (lahane?) - heavenly. For such a petite frame, Dora ate heartily and with great relish – though it was impressive that she always knew the exact moment to stop. When she worked in the teacher exchange program in Toronto, she came to my place regularly. She showed me how to make her uncle’s version of spanakopita using my pasta machine to roll out the filo dough. Yum! Years later when she came to Italy, we drove from Tuscany to the Amalfi coast, then took the car on the ferry and toured all around Sicily. We were always on the hunt for great grilled fish and seafood. Langoustines were her favourite. In the south-eastern part of Sicily, Dora was determined to find the famous trattoria where Montalbano was filmed and have a meal there. With a single-mindedness that was to be admired, she managed to find the location in Ragusa Ibla and insisted we walk (there was no bus or taxi) – it involved descending a very steep, deep incline with uneven steps (about 400!) then a similar climb up until we reach the historic old centre. Beautiful. We found the trattoria and dined on Pasta alle Vongole - one of Montalbano’s favourites – while seated before a TV that just happened to be showing Montalbano reruns . Another highlight of the Sicily adventure: just before the long, overnight ferry from Palermo back to Rome, while searching in vain for a place to eat, we happened upon an outdoor market in a rather dodgy part of the city near the port. Beautiful fresh fish and no way to cook it. But the fish monger reassured us and directed us to the street vendor just up aways who would grill the fish for us on the spot, AND, if desired, cook up some pasta alle vongole. So the flamboyant cook, cigar dangling from his mouth, cooked our meal all the while regaling an audience of hungry onlookers waiting their turn to be served. We got there first and made it to the ferry, just in time. My mouth still waters….
There are many more memories – too many to mention here. I am so grateful to have had Dora as a friend. I feel I know so many of Dora’s family and friends from our conversations. She deeply cared for you all and had a big capacity for love. The way she looked after her mother – keeping her at home as long as possible - was a testament to her strength of character and her giving nature. We can all learn a lot from Theodora – a person of substance.
Please know that she will stay in our hearts and her Canadian friends will gather –once the restrictions are relaxed – and celebrate Dora’s life with a drink and some good food.
Heartfelt hugs to all
Mary Pace

To Dora's siblings, nephews, neices, extended family and friends

I'd like to express my deepest condolences for your loss. Dora was an amazingly feisty free spirit with whom I had the pleasure of meeting during different times in my life. She certainly left an impressionable and most endearing imprint on me, as I'm sure she had done with so many who had the pleasure of her acquaintance.

Dora, you left your mark in this life with your intelligence and voracious appetite for life's experiences. You touched and influenced probably more people than you could've ever imagined. Rest in peace.

Ζωη σε σας.

This photo was taken February 2017 , our trip together Mollymook to Rick Stein Bannister. You always had best taste in food, cooking, best French wines and introduced me to many wonderful things, travelling to beautiful places. Every adventure with you was fun and never boring. I want to thank you for everything that we did together and for mum and I over the many years. I miss you and will miss eternity until we meet again. You were not only family, my sister’s sister in law, but my dearest friend, who I knew whenever I was with you, I was in safe hands and you showed me unconditional love. You were remarkable, inspiring strong women who never gave up. You were there for your nephews that I promise to be the aunt you were. You fought hard for 2 years, your tenacity to beat this, loved that about you. Goodbye my love, mum sends you her love as she never got to see you.. Love Peter, Georgina and Julie Coustoubardis

Sincerest condolences from all of us .

Dora and I had a special little bond it was more than just being named after the same grandmother.
I spent my early high schooling weekends at the Lafkas residence and Dora was more than an older cousin I looked upto.
Dora, was someone who went out of her way to show me new things and experiences.
Dora, showed me so many of my favourite 1st’s in life. Things like earl Grey tea from a tea pot and waiting outside her favourite bakery just so I could try a warm almond croissant.
To this day I havent been able to find a baker as good as yours, sitting in a cafeteria on a Saturday afternoon just because you could.
Driving to the beach not for the day but just for a quick dip with no packed esky and no days of planning with another 50 cousins and families just Dora and I .
Dora took the time to talk to me about all different matters in life.
Dora wanted to open my eyes to the world and prepare me for adult life.
Dora wanted to know me and she wanted me to know her.
I feel a lot of my adventurous side comes from those early years I spent with Dora and all our talks.
I think Dora gave me confidence as a young girl that I have also taken into my adult life.
Dora opened my eyes to not be afraid and to think out of the box and to speak my mind and some would say I speak my mind a little too much but she never did.
Watching Dora and
my brother in a debate could amuse me for hours watching how feisty she could get, it brings a smile to my face with tears in my eyes thinking they both might be doing just that for old time sake in heaven as I write this.
Dora was the 1st and only teacher I had ever had that made getting tutored fun, such a good teacher..
Thank you Dora I will miss you and will always love you dearly until we meet again ....
your not so little cousin anymore Dora❤️

She was one strong lady and it has been proven with her fight and determination with this disease.
Con, I think the world of you and what you have physically and mentally done for Dora is something you should be very proud of. You are an inspiration to us all and Dora was very grateful for all you did.
Dora will be missed but never forgotten, our special times we shared together will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.
May she Rest In Peace.

We were privileged to have Dora in our lives as our Godmother and will miss her so very much. It is thanks to Dora that we had the joy of being part of her beautiful Greek family. Dora showed us generosity, love and a passion to help those around her in the migrant community. We are so thankful for all the moments we were able to share with her - from growing up with joint family meals to enjoying dinner with Dora as adults, learning cooking recipes, picking herbs and enjoying Greek coffees at home. It is an honour for little Xavier to have had Dora as his “Yiayia”.

Dora, where do I start? There isn’t enough room to write everything but if I had to name the things that left their mark, they would be your amazing culinary skills, your impeccable taste in wine, our shared love of Gorman and the bush walks you would take us on. Boy did they make for some laughs! You were the first person to introduce me to classic children’s stories such as “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” and your travel books remain items I will forever cherish. What I will remember most however is the marshmallow that lived just beyond your strong and tough exterior; that giant heart that loved so fiercely and beat so strongly for those you cared about. Your courage and thirst for life was never more present than the last year and a half. You were a warrior and will continue to inspire us all from above. I love you and miss you; may you now find eternal peace. Tonight, I will enjoy a glass of Barolo in your honour ❤️
