Born in East Boston over 90 years ago, Patricia passed away at Rosewood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Peabody where she was receiving supportive care last Wednesday morning. Patricia grew up with her family on Spencer Avenue and received her education in Chelsea. Upon graduation from High School, she entered the Sisters of Providence convent where she took her final vows. After 27 years, with the passing of her sister-in-law, she left religious life to care for her brother. In the ensuing years, she continued as a teacher in the Malden School System until her retirement. In the years that followed teaching, she resided at 5 Admirals Way continuing to minister as a Eucharistic Minister at St. Rose Parish and St. Mary's Parish in Revere, also bringing Communion to homes as well as to the Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home.
