Mary M. Patrick

January 16, 1926 ~ March 31, 2022 (age 96)


Mary M. Patrick, age 96, passed away at Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls on March 31, 2022 surrounded by her loving family.

Mary was born in Akron and resided in either Northampton Township or Cuyahoga Falls most of her life. She was a graduate from the University of Akron with a degree in education. During college, she was a member of the Theta Phi Alpha sorority and it was also where she met her lifelong friends, the “mom’s club” girls, who met up monthly well into their 90s. After graduation, Mary became a founding member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Cuyahoga Falls, where she was also a beloved first grade teacher for 20 years.

Mary wed Al Patrick on June 17, 1950 and spent 52 wonderful years in marriage. Together they had four children. Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Al, and her son, Chris. She is survived by daughters, Sr. Ruth Ann Patrick, Mary (Walt) Kishton, and Barb (Larry) Riggins; grandchildren, Chris, John (Jill), Jen, Missy (Mike), Bill (Bridget), Andy (Sarah), and Mike (Dustin); and great- grandchildren, Kara, Juliana, Jada, Logan, Gianna, Sofia, Luke, Mae, Gemma, Zoey, Benjamin, plus one more on the way.

Mary was very involved in all her grandchildren and great- grandchildren’s lives and was their biggest supporter. All 11 of her great- grandchildren took great delight in passing her by in height. Due to her many years as a first grade teacher, her family parties always involved games and she never let the grandchildren and great- grandchildren leave her house without taking something with them - candy, cookie, or even a can of peaches - as it was always how a visit ended. She and her husband also enjoyed traveling and spending their winters in Florida. She was known by all to be one of the most loving, generous, and devout followers of the blessed Virgin Mary.

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. Interment at Northampton Cemetery.

Memorials can be made to the Father McIntyre Fund, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish.
