Sunday dinners were always lively with a blend of Irish and Italian extended families. To say the least, there was no lack of food or good times.

Pat and John truly enjoyed life in Manasota Key, FL sharing many good times with family and friends. She enjoyed the beach, the pool, and riding her bike. Patricia’s kindness and sweet personality will be remembered dearly by her family and friends.
Pat’s life will be celebrated in a private mass. In lieu of flowers, donations to Villa St. Benedict Memory Care Fund
