Pat was immensely proud of being from The Bronx and of her Irish Heritage and always was working on the genealogy tree over the years tracing family back to the 1400’s. Pat had a deep love for family and was always the first to call when there was good news to be spread. She is also survived by her niece Catherine and her husband Dan and daughter Sara, and nephew John. Patricia was proud of all her children achieving college degrees.
