McDERMOTT PATRICIA K.
It's with a sad and heavy heart that I announce the sudden death of my beloved mother on Sunday, January 3, 2010 at her Kennedy Twp. residence. Daughter of the late B. William "Bill" McDermott. Patti is survived by her daughter Caroline (Randy) Keefe-McDermott, her mother and two brothers. Patti was a fourth generation funeral director which she owned and operated the McDermott Funeral Home, Inc., in McKees Rocks and Kennedy Twp. She was a member of St. Malachy Parish, PA Funeral Directors Association, Allegheny County Funeral Directors Association and the National Funeral Directors Association. Locally, Patti was on the board of directors for the Sto-Ken-Rocks Boys and Girls Club of Western Pennsylvania. Family will welcome friends at the McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, INC., 334 Forest Grove Road, Kennedy Twp., Coraopolis, PA on Friday, January 8, 2010 from 2-4 and 6-8pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered Saturday 10am St. Malachy Church, Kennedy Twp. (EVERYONE MEET AT THE CHURCH). Concelebrants will be Fr. Michael Maranowski and Fr. Michael McDermott. Interment will be at Mt. Calvary Cemetery. The family requests memorial donations to the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, 1101 Western Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15233 or Animal Friends, 562 Camp Horn Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237, as Patti was an avid animal lover and animal rights advocate.
