Olfa “Margot” Sanchez, 81, of Mooresville, N.C., and formerly of Boca Raton, Fla., peacefully went to be with God on Valentine’s Day, Monday, February 14, 2022, at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born December 1, 1940, in El Callao, Venezuela, daughter of Angel Virgilio Sanchez and Julia Rita Hernandez.
Margot was a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. She practiced in Venezuela from 1981 through 2001. She also owned and operated a Bed & Breakfast, “La Casona de Margot,” in Merida, Venezuela, from 1995 through 2018. She always made sure every guest felt welcomed and at home. She dedicated her life to helping others, sharing her love of family, friends, cooking, music, the ocean, animals, such as her loyal companion, “Bella” and, most of all, her country of birth, Venezuela.
Margot was a bright light in this world and will be greatly missed by those who loved her. She touched the lives of many family members and friends. She is survived by her daughter, Olga Monroy and husband Paul Monroy of Mooresville, N.C.; her son, Antonio Perera and his wife Yamaliz Manrique of Merida, Venezuela; her grandchildren, Audrey Perera, Codi Monroy, Andrea Perera, Sofia Perera, Isabella Monroy, Trina Perera, Luis Mercado, Isabella Mercado, and Antonio Perera Jr.; and a host of sisters, nieces, nephews, and friends.
