Patricia was a proud wife and stay at home mother. She loved the sunshine, her pool, flowers and gardening, and reading. But most of all she adored her family. She was cherished by her family and friends and had a smile that lit up the room!

She is survived by her father William Walsh; sister Linda Hogan and partner Michael DeVito; brother Ken Walsh and wife Irene; sister Mary Covert and husband Bill; and sister Kerry Walsh-Stevenson.

    My aunt Patricia, 5 foot nothing and full of pizzazz. That is how I will always think of her. Funny and kind; giving and helpful; silly and smart. With a laughter nothing short of infectious and a smile that could light up the room.

    I think about birthday parties, Christmas mornings and poolside suntanning. I think about games in the front yard, sledding down the side and standing by her on her wedding day. I think about her apartment in Rockaway on top of the “mountain in the sky“. Her meticulously organized VHS collection, Pepsi in the fridge and Vantage in the freezer. I think about sleepovers on a pull out couch, her cat Midnight and the biggest hugs and kisses good night.

    I think about her laughing about how I used to crawl into her bed only to wake in the morning with my head where my feet had started out. How I kept her up all night kicking and pushing and shoving her until I had gotten “comfortable“. And how she used to love telling people I had so much to say during the day that I couldn’t say at all I had to talk in my sleep too (also keeping her up all night).

    As much as I try I can’t think of any part of my childhood without thinking about Patricia being there. I have very few memories without her smiling face being a part of them. And for that I thank her.

    For as much is I think fondly on all of those things, none of them would I consider my favorite part of her. My favorite part of her, unequivocally was her independence. Patricia lived her life her way. When she wanted. Where she wanted. And definitely how she wanted. Unapologetically. It’s her greatest lesson to me. That it’s OK to be you even if other people don’t agree. That at the end of the day you were the one living with your decisions so it should be you who is making them.

    I can’t say it was a lesson that she intended to teach me but it sure is stuck with me nonetheless and man do I respect her for it. It takes a really strong person to be that self-confident. Right wrong or indifferent. So Aunt Patricia I thank you. For all that you knew you were teaching me and everything you didn’t. Rest easy until we meet again, I love you.
