Born in Boston, she was the daughter of the late Edward H. and Louise N. (Sullivan) Butler and was raised in West Roxbury.
A homemaker, Pat raised her family with love and devotion. A woman of great faith, a devout Catholic, for her it was family that was the most important part of her life. As her family grew, she loved the time she spent with her grandchildren.
In her spare time, Pat enjoyed gardening, going to Gun Rock beach, socializing, and entertaining her friends and family with her famous turkey dinners, homemade chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and chocolate truffle.
Pat was a loving, generous, and selfless person. She was always accepting, compassionate, and devoted to her family and the people she cared for. Her life lessons are part of her legacy that continues through her family. Pat will be missed by all those she touched.
