Obituary for Patricia A. Bedard
Patricia Ann Bedard, age 80 of 43 Van Kleeck Rd. Millis, Ma. Passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 16 at home. She was with her beloved daughter Michele at the time of her passing.
“Patsy” a mother to so many, even to those who briefly entered her life. She always had an open door to any in need, and often provided friendship, guidance and a home to those without resources, or to people finding their way. Her straight forward manner, wonderful stories, and sense of humor always made being with her not just enjoyable, but an event not to be missed. Patsy’s colorful analogies have been passed down to her children and grandchildren and to anyone who spent enough time to hear her delightful “sayings”.
Patsy’s children were everything to her, and her beloved son and many daughters will miss her dearly. Our “Ma” was a friend, confidant and source of inspiration to us all. She loved to sing to us, dance with us and give us an appreciation great music, a great laugh and a great book. We will miss her so very much.
