Teresa Saelices de Dye

Teresa Saelices de Dye, 78, of Orlando, Florida, passed away on May 2, 2024, at Orlando Regional Medical Center from complications sustained from a fall. She was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain on February 7, 1946, to the late Antonio Alemany PeƱalva and Dolores Saelices Orellana.

The amazing Teresa Saelices Orellana, married Marvin Joe Dye in Spain on August 22, 1962. A devoted US Navy Chief Petty Officer’s wife who followed her husband’s 23-year distinguished Naval career spanning many Tours of Duty, both stateside (nuclear subs, Groton, Conn.) and overseas (Rota, Spain; NATO, Portugal). Teresa took on various jobs at Navy bases, often excelling in sales and performance and winning many awards. Teresa met the challenges of being a sailor’s wife head-on and was astute at packing up a home at a moment’s notice and moving her family across the world. If you know, you know. Incredibly blessed, every other tour was back to Spain, where her children were blessed to grow up knowing Teresa’s lovely family in Spain.

A longtime resident of Orlando, Florida, Teresa was a dedicated homemaker and selfless caregiver to her family. Her family came first, always, and forever. Teresa was proud to have achieved US Citizenship on November 14, 2022.

Teresa is survived by her husband Marvin Joe Dye of 62 years; Children, Teresa Diane Dye, Yolanda Lynn Dye, Claudia Calzaretta, and James Javier Dye (Abigail Smith); Siblings, Manuel (Lete) Saelices Orellana (Nena), Antonio (Nino) Saelices Orellana (Mamme), Paulino Saelices Orellana, Silvia Lopez Saelices (Manuel) and Lucy Wedell; Grandchildren, Robert D. Calzaretta Jr (Jasmine), Santina Marie Calzaretta, Carson Dye, and Campbell Dye; Great-Granddaughters, Flora Rose Calzaretta and Celeste Calzaretta (due August 2024); and many nieces and nephews.

Teresa will be remembered for being a selfless and incredible Wife, Mother, Sister, and Grandmother. Teresa will also be fondly remembered for her fantastic cooking, her beautiful smile and contagious laughter, and her cool crochet and knitting projects her family adored and cherished. She will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
