Patricia was born in Quincy on 7/7/30 and had lived in Milton since 1949 where she and her husband raised their family.  She treasured her East Milton neighborhood and considered herself to be extremely blessed to have enjoyed the comfort and beauty of the family home for over 70 years.  As a young working mom, she spent 16 happy years employed at Grono & Christie Jewelers in East Milton Square. Upon retirement in 1991 Pat had worked as a Service Representative for New England Telephone.

Growing up she developed a great love and appreciation of music. Pat was in the children’s choir at her childhood parish of St Ann’s Wollaston and later in life was a member of the Traditional Choir at St. Agatha Church Milton where she was a devoted parishioner.  From a young age her Catholic faith became an integral part of her life.  Patricia enjoyed playing golf both in MA and in Jupiter, FL where she and Steve lived for many of their retired winters.  Her enthusiasm and devotion to her beloved Boston Red Sox was known by all.  Other pastimes included playing the piano, gardening and bowling.  She was a member of The Keglerettes Bowling League in Quincy for several decades.  Pat had a great love for wildlife, flowers, nature and animals especially dogs.  She was known to have said that each and every dog that came into her home was “The Best and Sweetest” dog ever. Whether you were a relative, friend, neighbor or mere acquaintance of Pat’s you could be assured that you would be on her perpetual greeting card mailing list. A card every year for any and every occasion.  It gave her such joy to remember others and encourage them.  Pat had a special gift that was both genuine and authentic which was given freely to all who knew her. 

Pat’s family would like to thank The Milton Fire Dept, Fallon Ambulance and the wonderfully compassionate staff of the BID Milton Hospital ED and the ICU for their professionalism and dignity on Pat’s final day.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Saint Agatha Church, Adams Street at Brook Road, Milton, Thursday March 5 at 9:00 AM. Relatives and friends invited. Visiting hours at Dolan Funeral Home, 460 Granite Avenue, EAST MILTON SQUARE, Wednesday 3-7 PM. Interment Milton Cemetery.
