Patricia C. Park, also known as "Mimi" to some, was a warmhearted lady who passed away on Aug. 28, 2013. She lost a long battle with cancer, and died peacefully in her home, surrounded by most of her loved ones.
Born on Nov. 7, 1936, in the Wilkes-Barre area, her parents were Jacob and Constance Savage. She had five brothers, Larry, Alan, Jacob, Walter and Tommy Savage, Walter and Tommy being deceased.
She resided at the Abraham House in West Wyoming, where she ran an ice cream place and burger barn with her husband, Kevin Park. Patricia and Kevin were married for 25 wonderful years.
Her jobs included being a head housekeeper at the Woodlands and the Holiday Inn. She also owned said ice cream business with her husband.
She lived above her business with her husband and two cats she loved dearly, Kitty and Sassy.
Her children were Doreen, John, Joe and Brian Kubicki. She also had two stepchildren, Heather Wharton and Kevin Park Jr. She had many loving grandchildren, including Bobby Melodick; Summer, Autumn, Joey, Brittany and Brielle Kubicki; Noelle Rittenhouse; Holly Budurka; Madeline Wharton and Kevin Park III. She also had two daughters-in-law, Donna and Bernadette Kubicki.
She loved going on long rides with her husband and with her brother Larry. She enjoyed many activities, such as bingo, going to yard sales, watching soap operas, watching YouTube videos and spending time with her family. She always came down to her daughter's house every Saturday, before she got sick.
She was a wonderful mother, grandma and friend, and she will be deeply, sadly missed.
