  1. Dear Tzemis Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a love one in death it is never easy. During this difficult time may your family find comfort in Gods word the Bible that soon we will see our love ones again. -John 5:28,29

  2. Doris brought her love of music and gift of voice to her students, friends and family. Her love of Opera and performance at Jones Beach will always be remembered. Stan was the love of her life and she felt blessed to have found him. Her daughters and grandchildren gave her such joy and she was proud of their accomplishments. Her smiling face and generous spirit will be missed. We love you Doris. Barbara Mastrion Morano

  3. On June 13, 2019 at 09:26 am, my wife of almost 53 years, Nancy Doris Tzemis, peacefully took her last breath while I was whispering in her ear and caressing her face. My memories of Doris are countless. Doris was the love of my life, an outstanding, kind, generous and wonderful wife. She was a partner and friend to me, and an exemplary mother to our daughters, Sophia, Nicole and Jennifer. Always a loving grandmother to Evangelos and Jennifer, a good mother-in-law to Evagoras, and sister of Frankie; she opened her heart to each new member as our family grew. She loved both her immediate and extended family here and in Greece, frequently spoke of her aunts, uncles, and cousins, and enjoyed telling stories of her family history. She was a loving friend to many. Doris was a dedicated teacher who cared for hundreds of children over the years. She spoke their first language: music. As an opera singer, she hoped to share her love of music with as many as she could, as a consequence Doris founded the Staten Island Opera Ensemble. Her smile and open heart won many over; Doris continued to make new friends up to the last minute of her life. Doris cherished all the friendship she found and all the love and laughter of this world.Now, she is gliding beyond the rainbows, drifting past the sky, listening with joy to the harmony of the angels, in a place filled with living, eternal light. Doris brings to her eternal place the love of those who loved her, the happiness and memories and magic that all of us were blessed to share with her.Honey, we are all saddened from losing you, but I know our daughter Jennifer Lynn is rejoicing; after eighteen years of separation, she gets to see and embrace her beautiful mother Nancy Doris once again. God’s speed, my love Forever yours, Stam
