Patricia Locke "Patti" Caswell, 61, of Enfield, beloved wife of Fred Caswell Jr. for 41 years, passed away at home surrounded by her family after a two-year battle with cancer.
Born Sept. 25, 1958, in Springfield, Patti was the daughter of the late Charles and Gene (Young) Locke. She was employed by Hallmark Cards for 27 years. Patti loved the beach, especially walking along the sand in search of interesting shells, rocks, and critters. She enjoyed snorkeling hand-in-hand with her husband in the beautiful blue water surrounding Hawaii. While growing up, she spent many summers at Cape Cod with her family. She especially enjoyed visiting her "Gaylor sisters" including her best friend, Kellie, at the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

She also leaves many wonderful nieces and nephews.
