Patricia Ellen Gribbon

AGE: 82 • Lakewood

Patricia Ellen Gribbon, 82, of Lakewood, New Jersey, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 27 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York City.

She was born February 12, 1935 to Stephen and Helen Leahy and grew up in upper Manhattan, attending Corpus Christi parish school. She married the love of her life, Robert T Gribbon, in June of 1956. He preceded her in death in 2013. Bob and Pat enjoyed 57 years of love and laughter with terrific friends and a gigantic extended family. They traveled extensively, giving generously everywhere they went. Pat was a puzzle master extraordinaire, making mincemeat of the crossword each morning in pen. She loved playing cards and taught her grandchildren many games but never let them win. If a party was getting good Pat was the reason why. Her great stories, big laugh and last-to-leave spirit made life fun. She taught us about joy, kindness and the power of laughter. She loved the Lord.

Pat is survived by her brother Frank Leahy and his wife Margie of Little Egg Harbor, NJ, daughter Carol of Highlands, NJ, son Robert and his wife Susan of Hamden, CT, son Stephen and his wife Patti of Floral Park, NY; and son Richard and his wife Robin of Boulder, CO. Pat was a rock star Grandy to 10 cherished grandchildren and beloved aunt and friend to many more.

A visitation will be held at the D'Elia Funeral Home, 1300 Vermont Ave., Lakewood on Friday, from 2-4 & 6-8PM. A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at 12PM at Holy Family RC Church, Lakewood. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you cherish your family, give without fear, and take a long walk on the beach - Pat would have loved that.
