Rodothea Ekatomatis, age 71, of Margate, NJ passed away on Sunday January 12, 2020 surrounded by her loving husband of over 46 years, Ioannis Ekatomatis, her children, grandchildren, and countless friends and family. She was born August 14, 1948 in Skoutaros, Lesvos Greece, moving to the United States at the age of 22. There, she met and fell in love with Ioannis after the two were introduced by family in Atlantic City NJ.
Rodothea went to school in Greece to learn sewing, which she quickly fell in love with. She worked as a seamstress for over three decades, mostly for the same company. After she retired, she loved travelling to Greece in the summers, knitting, and most of all spending time with family and her loving grandchildren. She was an avid volunteer at her church, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church of Atlantic City, and was well known among her family and friends for her delicious pastries and Greek dishes, her beautiful flowers and vegetable garden, and the care and love she gave to her family.
Rodothea was preceded in death by her parents, Antonios and Athena Zeibekis and her brother, Savvas Zeibekis. She is survived by her loving husband, Ioannis Ekatomatis, and their children Konstantinos (Eleftheria) grandchildren, Yanni & Apostoli; Antonios (Jamie), grandchild Ian; and Elleni (Athanasios), grandchildren Athena & Nikolaos. She also is survived by her sisters, Konstantina Nikolaidis, Fotini Thalassinos, and brothers, Christos Zeibekis and Efstratios Zeibekis and countless nieces and nephews.
