She was born March 19, 1934 in Waltham, MA to parents Peter and Victoria (Dudek) Petrovich. Patricia graduated from Waltham High School in 1952. She met her future husband “Fred” at the Wal-Ex Roller Rink in Waltham and the two married in 1953. They lived for a brief time in Erie, PA before moving to Waltham, MA and then later to Marlborough, MA where they would raise their family. Patricia started working at Marlborough Hospital in the business office in 1976 and then for many years in the Payroll Office, ending in 1996.
Pat and Fred enjoyed crafting together and for many years sold their woodcrafts at local vendor fairs. They were married for 59 years before Fred’s death in 2012.
Pat was a devoted mother and loved being a grandmother. She found great joy in her family and prayed for them daily. Her Catholic faith meant the world to her. Over the years she was a parishioner of Immaculate Conception in Marlborough (where she was a choir member,) St. Ann’s in Marlboro, and St. Bernadette’s in Northborough. Before her recent illness, Pat resided at the Artisan at Hudson where she enjoyed attending mass with other residents as well as the occasional game of bingo.
The family would like to thank the dedicated staff of Rose Monahan for their support and compassionate care at the end of her life.
