Obituary: Patricia Gregory O’Connell, 84

Patricia Gregory O’Connell, age 84, passed away Jan. 25, 2020. She left us peacefully at home with family close by, having succumbed to a cerebral hemorrhage suffered a week earlier. Born in New Rochelle NY and raised at the Wykagyl Country Club, Pat was a longtime resident of Wilton CT, and most recently resided in Ludlow VT.

Pat lived a full life marked by passion for music, swimming, long walks and, most of all, her family. Pat was a deeply caring and selfless person. She was renowned for attending to those in need as well as keeping everyone up to speed with the latest news about family and friends close and far. She possessed prodigious stamina, especially on the telephone and at restaurants, a fact well known amongst wait staff coast to coast. Pat was a devout Roman Catholic and an alumnus of Marymount College in Tarrytown NY.

She is survived by her children Colette, G.M. (Elizabeth), Sean, Kevin (Naomi), and Brendan, as well as her grandchildren Henry, Callum, Owen, Georgiana, Peri, Ozzy, Dylan and William. Her late husband, Dr. Robert O’Connell, passed away in 1991.

Services will be held Saturday, Feb. 8 at 11:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Wilton, CT, immediately followed by a Celebration of her Life at a nearby location.
