CARTA, PATRICIA ANN (LEACH) D.M.D Patricia Ann (Leach) Carta, D.M.D., of Middletown, CT, beloved wife of Carl A. Carta for nearly 31 years, passed away on September 15, 2016, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Born June 12, 1954 in Patterson, NJ, she was the daughter of Agnes (McDonough) Leach of Ridgewood, NJ and the late James Leach. Patricia is survived by her daughters, Kelly, Meghan, Laura, Jennifer, and son, Michael of Middletown whom she treasured and adored more than anything else in the world. In addition, Patricia is survived by her beloved sisters Mary Leach of Rochelle Park, NJ and Kathleen Leach of Ridgewood, NJ; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Anne and John Gauthier of Middletown; brother-in-law Robert Carta and his partner Michael Icenhour of Charlotte, NC; nephews John and Matthew Gauthier and niece Cara Carlini. Patricia also leaves behind many dear friends whom she cherished like family. Patricia was an unbelievably gifted, brilliant and ambitious woman who valued her education and was determined to succeed in a male-dominated world. Patricia attended Lafayette College from 1972-1976, attaining a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Biology. She continued her education at Rutgers Dental School where she attained a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1979, one of a few women to do so at that time. She studied an additional two years at Rutgers Dental School to obtain her specialization in Pediatric Dentistry. Patricia, or Dr. Pat as she was more commonly known to her patients, began her dental career as an Associate pediatric dentist at the office of Drs. Robert Schreibman and Robert Jung in Glastonbury, CT in 1981. While working as an Associate dentist, she also held an Adjunct Faculty position in the Pediatric Dental Clinic at Mount Sinai Hospital in Hartford, CT. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Pat became Board Certified as a Diplomate of The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. In 1985, Dr. Pat opened her own solo pediatric dental practice in Middletown, where she has remained for the past 30 years. Dr. Pat truly cherished her many patients and staff members and always felt like her office was her second home. Over the course of her career, Patricia exemplified the ability to balance both work and family, as she was vibrantly active in her childrens’ lives while being fully committed to her many patients. Patricia also spent as much time as she could with the love of her life, Carl, planning weekend getaways or simply going out to dinner. Patricia also firmly believed in giving to others and touched many lives with her generosity and loving heart. The family would like to extend the warmest heartfelt thank you to Patricia’s outstanding oncology nurses at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT for their unbelievable support, comfort, love, and compassionate care. The family would also like to extend a special thank you to Abbie and Sister Sue. The family will receive visitors in celebration of Patricia’s life on Monday (Sept. 19th) at Biega Funeral Home, 3 Silver St., Middletown from 4 to 8 p.m. Her Funeral Liturgy will be held Tuesday at 10 a.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Church, Elm St., Middletown. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Middletown. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Patricia’s name may be made to Mercy High School, 1740 Randolph Road, Middletown, CT, 06457.

I miss you dear Patti, as I will forever. I think of you so often during my day, and miss your calls both in the early morning and at the end of your work day. I could not have asked God for a better sister and best friend. You made each person you knew feel so very special which is such a gift. I feel your love always and know you are watching over all of us. I am certain you are so proud of your family which is growing so beautifully under your watchful gaze. The video of Ryleigh kissing your photo is so very touching, and I know you are giving her back butterfly kisses from Heaven.

Remembering my "big sis" and missing her today and always..thinking of the beautiful foundation our wonderful parents Agnes and James gave Pat, Mary,and I in Ridgewood NJ..the early days of family, friends,Catholic grammar school, high school in Ridgewood High..knowing that the dedicated love and kindness, sacrifice, support and joy of growing up so loved by parents and siblings, and with aunts, uncles,grandparents and cousins in NYC and Pennsylvania always willing to be there for her and all of us laid a foundation and a legacy many people lack in this world. Those memories of Pat studying,laughing around mom's chicken dinners,going out with her high school friends, picnics and swimming at our local park and pool,singing during mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel church and midnight mass aon Christmas Eve vacations and road trips,going to musicals with Aunt Margie, Aunt Dorothy and mom, shopping,listening and laughing with each other,celebrations of all kinds,even watching Pat her carve wax teeth with such dedication on the porch for dental school or studying for hours,and endless times spent together doing simple fun things...even through her graduate work back in NJ and her first job as a dentist while she lived at home are memories I will never forget!May we all be comforted by our beautiful memories..from birth to death,the dash of a life gone too soon,but always remembered.

Dear Carl, Kelly, Meghan, Laura, Jennifer and Michael,
As we all know today marks a year since our loss. I think of my dear sister Patti quite often throughout my day. I miss so many major events as well as the many thoughtful acts of kindness she did on a regular basis. I miss her morning phone calls to talk about her day ahead and her evening calls just before she left the office. I miss her visits and our shopping adventures. I had a true best friend and sister all rolled up into one. Life will never be the same and sweet memories of her are forever etched in my heart. Please know that I am thinking of each one of you today as well as the many lives she touched. God bless you all. Love, Auntie Mary

When I heard of the passing of Dr Pat I was overcome with such grief. My mind wandered back to when I was a child and how much I enjoyed going to the dentist just to see her. Every visit was filled with so much love and care that I cried when I aged out and has to leave to find and adult dentist. My last visit with Dr Pat was not to long ago when I brought my nephew in for a visit. She hugged me, asked me to give her love to the family and told me to come back to visit soon. I will never forget you and you are/will be truly missed. Middletown has suffered s great loss but your memory will live on forever.

We are so saddened to learn of Dr. Pat's passing. She is the only dentist my girls have known and they will truly miss her. As a testament to her and her staff, we continued to drive to her office after moving to Wethersfield (not always easy for ortho appointments!) but had no desire to find another office because the girls always felt safe and well cared for with her. Thinking of her family at this time. She was a lovely lady.

I am profoundly sad to hear of the passing of our most treasured children's dentist. My children and I absolutely adored her. When we made the move back to NY, we made the one hour travel to see her for the children's annual cleanings and my son's braces appts, of which there were MANY over the last two years but I wouldn't have had anyone one else work on his teeth. Oh how we are going to miss that ray of sunshine and her absolute appreciation of seeing us travel so far to see her. May you rest with the Angels Dr. Pat because I know you were truly one here on earth to me and my children and the countless others who had the honor of calling you our children's dentist.

No words can express the loss we feel for our dear Dr Pat's passing. She was amazing woman who showed a love for her patients and made each feel loved and secure. Our daughter Molly was one of Dr Pat's patients from 2 years old to her discharge this past August as she is off to Uconn. I will be forever grateful to the kindness she showed our busy little girl.. I never had to worry about her not wanting to go for her visit to Dr Pat. So it is with all our love and sympathy to her Family and her dental office family.. We send a Smile to the woman who made so many children smile..and laugh.
With Our Love..

I did not know Dr.Pat personally but heard about her often through others who had entrusted their children to her. She was an angel in her life on earth and now she is an angel who will watch over all of you. She cared and loved everyone. The City of Middletown, her family, friends and patients will never ever forget her beautiful being, inside and out. I did not know the Carta family but I am praying for all of you that your tears of sadness with someday turn to smiles when sharing the beautiful memories you shared with her, FOREVER. Rest in sweet peace Dr. Pat.The smiles of MANY will not be the same without you here.

I just wished my kids would have had her as they dentist because she was truly the greatest and most caring person who loved her job and her family.

Dr. Pat was an AWESOME person. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. PAT for 26 years. She was the best dentist I have known. Even after moving out of town I never switched to a new dentist. She cared about her patients and treated them like family. I would not have the beautiful smile I have today if it wasn't for her generosity, care and heart to help my dad. Dr. Pat is irreplaceable. May you rest in peace. Keeping the Carta family in our thoughts and prayers.

Carl and family, so sorry for the loss of Pat. We first met Pat like many others bringing their first born to a dentist appointment, which is as traumatic for the parent as the child but Pat immediately smiled and comforted both parent and child with her beautiful gentle ways. Our paths crossed socially as well as our girls played sports and all went to Mercy. The community has lost a special woman! Love and prayers to all of you!

To the Carta Family:

No words can express the shock and sadness that I have upon hearing of the passing of Pat. As you know, Pat and I went through the Pedo program at Rutgers together from 1979-1981. During those two years, we were together virtually every day and had the pleasure of forming a bond of friendship that lasts to this very day. I appreciated her wonderful personality, sweet demeanor, her wise consul, and her dedicated professionalism. We kept in contact all these years, trading Christmas greetings and catching up with all our dental successes and failures, but more importantly, bragging about our children. She truly loved her family and was so proud of them. Her memory will live on in the beautiful family she left behind. She will be sorely missed by all, but she will be a smile to all who think of her.
May her memory be a blessing to all of you. I lost a true colleague and friend. May your family know of no more sorrow.

Fondly,

Very sad to learn of her passing. As I read through these beautiful messages, one by one, all echoing the sadness and disbelief, one can feel the deep love and appreciation others had for her, for the person she was both personally and professionally, touching many people throughout her life's journey. I met her a few times while attending various dental meetings and remember that she was always smiling. A bright light in a room full of people. My heartfelt condolences to Kelly whom I had spoken with on many occasions (Smiles for The Future)and to the entire Carta family. No words would ever be able to fill the void she has left behind in our hearts. May you find some comfort in the beautiful memories that she will forever dance within and always be proud of the woman she was. Thank you for sharing her with all of us.

I'm keeping her family and friends in my thoughts during this very difficult time.

Meghan and Family,

My deepest sympathy and prayers to you and your entire family in the loss of your mother. I first met her at Mercy High School where I taught math and then as my grandchildren's dentist.

She was remarkable with children, especially those with special needs.

The pride and love she had for all of her own children could not be missed as one visited her office. Your pictures were everywhere.

May loving memories stay with all of you always,

Dear Carl, Kelly, Meghan, Laura, Jenny, and Michael, We were shocked and so saddened to hear that Dr Pat had passed. I first met her when we took a Lamaze class together. When EJ was 18 months old, he became her patient for the next 20 years! And of course, we shared the St Mary School and Mercy/Xavier parent experience as well! She has always been so kind, helpful, and friendly. So many fond memories over the past 24 years. When we lost our Eddie to cancer 9 years ago, she sent us the book, "Hello From Heaven!" that brought us both comfort. We hope you will find comfort and peace as you treasure your memories and feel her eternal love and continuing presence in your lives. Much love and deepest sympathy, Judy Dawe and EJ Stankewicz <3 <3 <3

Pat was a lovely woman who was friends with my younger brother, Bill Von Hoene since high school. Every year, Pat and Bill would get together over lunch and talk about family and friends. Pat was kind enough to come to Bill's memorial service in 2007 and it meant the world to my family. She was a wonderful wife and mother and a valued friend.

Condolences to the Carta family. I met Dr. Pat at a wedding in 1993. I only spent a few hours at the same table as her and Carl, it was just a fleeting moment in time. A short time later my husband died tragically and she ended up giving my three young children FREE dental care until I was employed and obtained dental insurance. She was an angel here on earth....

Even though she was busy, she always took the time to ask how everyone was and ask what was going on in their lives. She made going to the dentist a pleasant experience, providing care from first teeth to braces! Her expertise will be missed. Sending prayers and sympathy to her loving family and friends.

My deepest sympathies to the entire Carta family. Dr. Pat touched my heart and she will never be forgotten. She was always incredibly caring with my daughter with special needs. She treated her with dignity and kindness despite the fact that my daughter screamed during the entire dental appointment. It did not phase Dr. Pat and she always remained calm and loving. I've never met such a kind soul and now heaven has gained an angel. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Dr. Carta was the nicest lady we have ever met. She had a heart of gold, incredible spirit and just a ray of sunshine to be around. She was a great dentist who took care of our kids and we will never forget her. We shared stories about each other's kids and she always had the biggest smile on her face when speaking about hers. You can tell how much she loved them and they meant to her. We always admired her deeply, way beyond being a dentist. We are just so saddened by her loss. We will miss her. My condelences to her family. May she rest in peace. She is with God in heaven watching down upon her family.

Even though my children no longer see Dr Pat as they are grown adults,she remains a part of us. She would always tell me how polite and well mannered my children were. My son would always ask her first how she was that day and she was taken aback. My daughter was guided by Dr Pat and I appreciated her gentle demeanor. Dr Pat would tell me that if she ever had a son, she would name him Michael. My own son is named Michael and so she did have her Michael which was such a joy for her having had her daughters first. I watched her expand her family and still remain so professionally dedicated to her other children, her patients. I am so saddened to hear of this untimely passing of a sweet loving lady..Mrs Nichols and family.
