Pat was an amazing lady. We love her entire family.

Jacqueline Pontello says:

I was blessed to have Patricia as my aunt and my godmother. Hers was a genuine goodness, marked by unfailing positivity and generosity. She was the best imaginable caretaker to her mother Ella Rita only to start her own battle with Alzheimer’s shortly thereafter.

Love to Kenneth, Rosanne and Karen, to the spouses and grandchildren. Love, also, to hher husband John, whose care for Patricia was exemplary and bespoke his great love.

Amy Boelkens says:

I’m so very sorry to hear this. She was a sweet, fun, loving, Christian minded person. I’m grateful she was my step mother in law for many years. I know she adored her family and always treated myself , my ex husband and children like family which meant a lot to me . She took amazing care of my late father in law, Sam Gullo. I know she will be missed by many. I am blessed to have know her.
