Rosemary C. (nee Montanaro) Patrick, a loving, intelligent, and faith-filled woman, passed away peacefully on May 14th, 2023, in Lima, PA, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born on April 4th, 1949, in Philadelphia, PA, Rosemary was the daughter of the late Sara and Rocco Montanaro and a proud graduate of Cardinal O'Hara High School.
Rosemary was a devoted and loving mother to her two sons, Lawrence and Brendan Patrick, who were her pride and joy. Her love for her family knew no bounds, and she was always there to support and encourage her children in all their endeavors. Her love extended beyond her immediate family, as she was a cherished sister to Sandra Engle and Nicholas Montanaro. Rosemary also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins who will remember her fondly for her warmth, humor, and unwavering support.
Throughout her life, Rosemary was dedicated to her work as a Nuclear Medicine Technician. Her intelligence and work ethic allowed her to excel in her career, and her caring nature made her a favorite among patients and colleagues alike.
Rosemary's faith played an integral role in her life. She was a devout Catholic who found solace and strength in her beliefs. Her faith-filled heart guided her through life's challenges, and her kindness and compassion touched the lives of everyone she met. As we celebrate the life of Rosemary C. Patrick, we remember her not only for the challenges she faced but for the incredible strength and grace with which she faced them.
