After 49 years of marriage her beloved husband, “Dutch” passed away in 1995. She subsequently moved from Sanford Street in Rye to Milton Harbor House. Pat often said that she felt like she was living at a country club and made fast friends. She especially enjoyed her weekly canasta games, was active with the Rye Seniors and was a parishioner at Resurrection Church . Pat was known for her quick wit and did not hesitate to speak her mind or share her opinions. She did not suffer fools gladly. When chided about her behavior, her response would often be, “What can I say, I’m just honest.” Guilt and remorse were not familiar words in her vocabulary but she was beloved by anyone who had the privilege of truly knowing her. Pat loved her family with a fierceness that could rival any lioness. She frequently told her children, “I would go through fire for you.” (her way of saying I love you). Pat adored her grandchildren and was actively involved in their lives. She had a fabulous sense of humor and an abundance of energy. She was often the brunt of endless family jokes but embraced the attention and often responded with some classic “comebacks”.
The memories she made, exuberant personality and oftentimes outrageous observations and comments will live on forever.
Pat is survived by her daughters Nancy Hughes (Jack) of Swampscott, MA; and Susan Weaver of Armonk, NY; Daughter-in- law Michele Trumm of Mosinee, WI; 10 grandchildren, Amy Hogan (Rich); Kim Bissias,(George); John Hughes, (fiancé Kristin); Darrell Weaver (Jackie); Devin Weaver; Brandon Weaver; Samantha LaGamma (Phil); Charlie Trumm; Jesse Trumm and Peter (“Pete”) Trumm as well as 6 great grandchildren.
Pat is preceded in death by her husband, Dutch, 5 siblings, son Peter and son-in law Bill Weaver.
A graveside service with immediate family members is planned.
