At that time she also courted her future husband, Joseph, while he was a prisoner of war in Germany; they celebrated their 72nd anniversary in June.

They maintained their home in Englewood until Hurricane Irma hit in September; soon after, she was taken to the hospital for a series of operations, but never fully recovered.

Patricia was an active member of St. Raphael’s Catholic Church, Englewood, and the local chapter of the National Council of Catholic Women. Among other offices with the NCCW, she served as president of the Florida Chapter of the NCCW.

She is survived by her husband, Joseph; three children, Susan (Cianflone), Edwin, and Guy; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; her sister, Jean Trombly of Rochester, New York; and many nieces and nephews.
