It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of wife and mother, Patricia Anne Patrick, 88, at her long-time home in Perry, NY on May 22, 2021.

Mom was born September 21, 1932 in Warsaw, NY, the second of four children, to the late John and Mildred Rogers Barth. She met her future husband, Richard Charles Patrick, at a barn dance in Perry Center while they were still in school – both members of the Perry High School class of 1950. They were married in November 1953 and moved to the farm where Dad was raised, a home they would share for the next sixty-seven years. Mom and Dad spent those years as best friends, living a life she had always desired, raising a family in the country and operating a successful dairy farm.

Growing up near Grandma Barth’s Buckland Avenue floral shop, Mom developed a love for flowers and floral design. Besides tending her own gardens and beds she managed a floral shop in Perry in the 1970’s and her own home-based floral gift shop in retirement.

Mom worked as a Registered Nurse for many years enjoying all aspects of nursing especially working in the operating room. In the 1980’s she returned to school, completing the requirements for Credentialed Alcoholism Counselor. After which, she developed and taught educational prevention and awareness programs used throughout Wyoming County schools. Mom retired in 1993 as Clinical Coordinator and primary therapist for the Caron Foundation in Rochester, NY.

She was a life-long member of the First United Methodist church of Perry where on any given Sunday you might spot her in the choir loft lifting voices to God with daughters Linda, and Beth. She was active in other areas of church life as well, forming and leading both the junior and bell choirs (a great way to get the kids more involved!) Mom was also instrumental in the effort to include the church on the National Register of Historic Places, devoting many hours to researching church history during the nomination process in a project near and dear to her heart.

Mom had many hobbies and interests throughout her life including singing in the annual Rotary shows, watching baseball and horse racing, cooking and baking, dancing – especially tap and ballet, figure skating, and still life and landscape painting.

She is predeceased by her husband, Richard; daughter, Linda Czyryca; son Michael; brother Robert Barth.

Mom is survived by her daughter Elizabeth; sons Christopher (Laurie) and Brian (Marsha); daughter-in-law Susan; son-in-law John Czyryca; sister Joanne Barth; brother Richard (Jessie) Barth; grandchildren Jordan Czyryca, Emily (Geoff) Phelps, David (Taylor) Patrick, Charles, Riley, Lily, Jacob Patrick, Anthony Grimmelt; great grandchildren Hailie, Levee, and Hadley Mae Patrick; as well as loving nieces and nephews.

A private service is planned. Memorials may be made to the First United Methodist church of Perry.

The family wishes to thank Roslyn Kelly for her years of loving and compassionate care for our mother.
