Her daughter Melissa and grandson Michael were with her when she bravely transitioned into her eternal life. Born on September 1, 1943, Patty was the daughter of the late Mark and Victoria Clinton of Brooklyn, New York.
She grew up in a multigenerational home and was blessed with a beautiful bond with her grandmother, Sophia Miskiewicz.

Patty resided in Cumming, Georgia for the past 8 years. Her passions included gardening, baking from scratch, drinking strong coffee, eating any slice of cake placed in front of her, making homemade pierogi, and visiting with her friends, but most of all, she loved spending time with her grandchildren.
