Patricia Dinnell

Patricia Dinnell (nee Conway), 75, of Harrington Park, died peacefully at home on Thursday, December 27, 2018. Born August 17, 1943 in Brooklyn, NY.

Beloved wife of Ralph for 53 years. Devoted mother of Andrew and his wife Kathleen, Karen and her husband Steve LoPresti and Scott and his wife Kristen. Adored grandmother of Matthew, Kate, Sam, Jack, Jonathan, Patrick, Timothy, Riley, Sarah, Brian, Sophia and Daniel. Dear sister of Mary Elizabeth Conway O’Connor and Kathleen Conway Gervais. Patricia graduated from St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn and taught in parochial schools in Brooklyn, Harrington Park and Norwood. She was active in her church community as a Eucharistic minister.

An owner of several dogs, Pat loved all animals – except the deer that ate the tomatoes in her garden for fifty years.

As a grandmother, she took on the roles of doctor, chauffer, chef, mechanic, maid, tutor and role model. Each of her twelve grandchildren loved her so dearly and will continue her legacy of thoughtfulness and compassion.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday at 10 AM at Our Lady of Victories RC Church, Harrington Park.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sisters of Charity Development Office, PO Box 476, Convent Station, NJ 07961
