Patricia grew up in Medford, NY and graduated from Patchogue High School in 1967. She was a devoted mother and housewife. She was an avid crossword puzzle solver, formidable Scrabble player and enjoyed cooking Italian food for her family.
Patricia was loyal, fair, calm loving and supportive. She and her husband, George, moved to Maryland in 1998 to help with and be near their grandchildren. Her family was her world, and she especially delighted in her grandchildren. She loved to reminisce about family tales!
Her sons say this about their dear mom:
“She was the kindest and most caring person we have ever known. To say we were fortunate to have her as our mom is an understatement. She was also an equally loving and nurturing grandmother to her adoring grandkids. Thank you for everything you have done for our family, mom. You will truly be missed.”
