Patricia A. Bruce

CORAL SPRINGS, FL - Patricia A. Bruce died February 7, 2014 of natural causes.

Patricia (Patti) was born on July 19th, 1936 in Poughkeepsie, NY to William and Isabelle Baldwin and was the oldest of three daughters. She attended Poughkeepsie High School and later the Barbizon School of Modeling, where her lifelong fondness of fashion and beauty was sparked. She had sincere passion for the arts, affinity for the church community, and traveled whenever the opportunity presented itself. She was happiest when at the ocean, on a sail boat, or simply soaking in the sun with a book in hand.

Patti's true love in life was, and will always remain, her family and many long time friends. She is survived by her four children, their spouses, five granddaughters, two sisters and many nieces and nephews.

There will be a memorial service held in Patti's honor on Sunday, March 2nd from 11:00am-1:00pm at the Elks Lodge, located at 29 Overocker Road in Poughkeepsie, NY. In lieu of flowers, her family is asking that donations be made to any Veterans or Diabetes organizations.
