Holden, Mary Patricia "Pat"
Holden , Mary, Patricia. With all the grace and dignity of a life well lived and surrounded by family, Mary Patricia passed away Tuesday and is now reunited with her loved ones in heaven. She was born Oct. 7, 1926 and known simply as Pat by her friends and family. Pat was a faithful wife to the late Stuart Holden, a loving mother to the late Stuart Jr. and Nancy Holden, a devoted sister to 4, a supportive aunt to 22, a kind great aunt to 49 and a loyal friend and confidant to countless others. Upon graduating from The College of New Rochelle in 1947, Pat and Stu were wed at St. Joseph's Church in 1948 and began building their life together in Bronxville NY. Pat was an extremely active, independent woman with many passions; among them were decorating, fashion, bowling, bridge and golf; she has been an esteemed member of Siwanoy Country Club for over 60 years. Faith was central to Pat's life and she was a devout Catholic who worshiped at St. Joseph's Church; her presence amongst the congregation will be greatly missed. Pat was an absolutely authentic Lady, who lived and loved with integrity, class and kindness. In lieu of flowers and in keeping with the spirit of Pat, turn to a loved one and with all sincerity ask them, "How ARE you?" and then simply listen to them. Calling hours at the Fred H. McGrath & Son Funeral Home Bronxville between the hours of 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm Sunday. Mass of Christian Burial St. Joseph's Church, Bronxville on Monday, May 20, at 11AM. Interment to follow at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
