It is with great sadness that the family of Patricia F. Gleason announces her passing on July 30, 2018 at the age of 73, after a year-and-a-half battle with pancreatic cancer. Patty was born an army brat in Des Moines, Iowa. She was a single mom who focused most of her time on raising her daughter Allyson. Eventually, she met her husband Martin “Marty” at a ski party in Catskill, N.Y. Together they moved two more times before finally settling down in the place they had dreamt of, Cutchogue, N.Y. Patty loved decorating her home, tending to her flower gardens, traveling to exotic places and going out on her boat, the “Patricia,” or to the local beaches with her family, friends and two granddaughters. Her granddaughters, Claire and Lauren, spent many wonderful weekends on the water with Patty. She loved anything to do with the water and had a passion for selling real estate.
Patty leaves behind her husband Marty; her children, Allyson and Brud; grandchildren Claire and Lauren; and siblings Pam, Johnny and Lesley.
The family will receive visitors Thursday, Aug. 2, at DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home in Mattituck.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, Aug. 3 at 9 a.m., at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Mattituck. The Rev. Roger Joslin will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978; www.eeh.org would be appreciated.
