NEW BEDFORD - Dorothy (Dot) “Lady” Miranda of New Bedford passed on January 18th, 2022. Although unexpected, she passed peacefully. Born November 27th, 1936, “Lady” accomplished many things in her 85 years. Her proudest accomplishment being her two children, Steve and Lori Ann. Not very far behind that was Modeling. At the age of 61 years young she attended the LaFemmina Modeling School where later earned the title “Model of the Year”, as well entering and winning the New England Beauty Pageant as the “Queen of Winterland”. Everyone who knew her knows she always had her car keys in hand and was ready to hit the road every chance she got; whether to visit with cousins to catch up or simply take her sister Pauline for coffee and a muffin.
Her family was her world!! She would do anything for them or anyone for that matter. She opened up her heart and home to all. Strangers became friends and friends became family. She will be more than missed by so many but we can all take comfort in knowing she has been reunited with her loving mom Louise “Lizzy” Correia, her brother Arthur Correia and her beloved son Steve Miranda. While we know they’re celebrating their reunion, she will be missed by her daughter Lori Miranda and Fiancé Nichole Castagnaro, sister Pauline Correia, brother Stanley Correia and wife Marilyn, sister-in-law Joan Correia, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.
As she always said to her children even as adults when we left the house or before getting off the phone, “I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow” and mom, we loved you so much more.
A celebration of her life will be held at the Calvary Pentecostal Church 33 Braley Rd East Freetown on Saturday, February 12th 2022. Walk-through from 10a - 12p with a service immediately following. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the Cape Cod Alzheimer’s Family Support Center, 2095 Main St, Brewster MA 02631 in Lady Miranda’s honor.
