Concetta (Connie) Dorogoff, 97, passed away peacefully on April 11, 2020 in her home in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Connie was the eldest sister to Josephine Casino (deceased).  Connie married Peter Dorogoff on June 19th, 1949 was by his side until his death in 2007. Together, they had four children: Donna Yoerg, Susan Segen, Paul Dorogoff (Tricia Kelly) and Roseann Dorogoff. Connie lived her whole life in Brooklyn and would never think of it as anything but the best and greatest place on earth. Connie and Pete later bought a summer bungalow in Breezy Point, Queens. A place that was constantly filled with laughter and joyful memories for all the generations of their family.

She is survived by seven grandchildren. Peter Yoerg (Songul), Virginia Yoerg(Brad), Anastasia Yoerg(Mattieu), Joseph Segen, Nikki Segen(Luis), David Segen and Ryan Dorogoff. She also leaves behind 5 great-grandchildren: Simon Behr, Everett Behr, Wyatt DeCrop, Beau Decrop, and Adalise Yoerg.

Connie will be incredibly missed by all that knew her, especially by her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She had a genuine whit, carefree personality and a sense of humor that could make anyone smile. Connie always had the ability to welcome any person that came in her path and in her home with open arms. Anytime you were surrounded by Connie you felt safe, loved and happy.


Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May Connie’s soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
