Patricia was born in Danbury, Connecticut on April 21, 1936, the daughter of the late Charles and Anna Best. She had attended St. Patrick’s School and Mynderse Academy, both of Seneca Falls. Patricia is most lovingly remembered as the matriarch of her large family. She leaves us with her most important gifts of immutable strength, determination, courage and optimism, characteristics that she humbly lived daily. She had been a valuable employee at Sinicropi Florist and, at one time, worked at the former Calarco’s Bakery and Diner, both of Seneca Falls. She had resided most of her life in Seneca Falls and was a member of St. Patrick’s Church, Seneca Falls. She had been active in many of her church’s various activities throughout the years. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting and sewing and was happiest when one of her creations made it to the house of a newborn. Patricia was well-known for her love of Christmas. She began her annual house decorating each Halloween!
