Loving Daughter, Sister, Aunt, and Friend
LOWELL -- Patricia Durkin, 56 years young, daughter of Brendan and Claire (Neylon) Durkin died on April 1, 2011. Besides her parents, she is survived by six brothers and sisters: Mike and Mary Ann Durkin, Kathy and Tim Woods, JoAnn and Rick Spencer, Danny and Stephanie Durkin, Dottie Durkin and Kevin and Pam Durkin. She also leaves 15 nieces and nephews; Mick and Christine Durkin, Joe and Meghan Durkin, Brian and Julie Durkin, Erin and Jim Quealy, Timmy Woods and Stacey Ralls, Patrick Woods and Kristin Schepici, Lauren and Alyson Spencer, Steve, Matt, Jenna, Lily, Zach, Olivia, and Athena Durkin. She will also be greatly missed by her grandnieces and grandnephews Kyle, Sydney and Leah Durkin, Brendan, Caoilinn and Chelsey Quealy, and Cam and Ben Durkin. Patty will also be missed by numerous first cousins of the Durkin, the McCabe, the Phelps, Neylon and the Gorman families. She is also survived by her godfather Jim Durkin, aunts Franny Durkin, Kay McCabe, Mary Neylon and Phyllis Durkin.
Patty lived her life to the fullest and will be remembered for her great sense of humor and love of playing practical jokes on all her many, many friends and co-workers. She never refused a microphone, never found a song she couldn't sing, or a camera she wouldn't pose for.
She danced every dance, she sang every song, she loved all she met and all loved her. Patty was special in every sense of the word. She enjoyed traveling to Cape Cod, York Beach, Maine and Disney World. She counted Mickey Mouse and Elvis as her BFFs. Family meant the world to Patty and Patty meant the world to her family.
Patty's family will be eternally grateful for the love and care Patty has received from Growthways in Brockton, MA throughout the years. Judi, Eileen, Rachel and the wonderful staff at Patty's home and workplace have always offered her unconditional love and support for which her family will be forever grateful.
