Patricia Kathleen Turner Begler born October 25, 1938 in Clinton, IL to the late Mary Rose and the late John Turner. Patricia, raised in Lockport, IL, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family after a brief illness. She worked until she married Richard Begler in 1958 and moved to Wisconsin. Patricia lived in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania before settling in Connecticut almost 40 years ago. When her children were young she was active in St. Gregory the Great parish where she made many lifelong friends. When her children were older she began working in real estate and then at Macy's in the Danbury Fair Mall where she worked from 1994 until her retirement in July 2011. "Neena" as she was known to all who loved her took great pride in her five granddaughters. Her cooking was famous among her family and friends and everyone always wanted to know what Neena was making for parties and family events. Family was the most important treasure in her life especially her sister Fran with whom she shared many wonderful experiences including a recent trip to Ireland.
