Patricia Ann

Pattie died on Friday, January 31, 2014, after a courageous, seven-year battle against cancer.

Pattie was born in Toledo, Ohio on July 12, 1950, to Leo and Patricia Gray. Pattie loved spending time with her husband, Denny, traveling and going to the casino to play the slot machines. They were married for 43 years and were best friends from the day they met. Their three boys, John, Chad and Marc will always treasure the volumes of “Mom and Dad” stories with laughter and a few tears.

She worked for the Toledo Public Schools for 25 years as a bus aide, helping children with special needs. Her stories of how much she enjoyed working with the kids on her bus warmed our hearts.

She loved spending time with her grandkids, Grace, Allison, Erin and Dane and daughter-in-law, Lenora. The love and times they shared will always be cherished. Pattie loved it when they visited and especially enjoyed shopping for them for Christmas and birthdays.

Pattie will be missed by so many people and her family hopes that anyone who knew her and wants to celebrate her wonderful life will join us for a mass at The Historic Church of Saint Patrick, Downtown Toledo on Monday, February 3, at 1 p.m.

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
