Patricia Cheryl Lentini, 71, passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at her home with her family by her side.  She was born March 26, 1946 in Somerville, NJ daughter of the late Frank Lentini and Evelyn Kennedy.

Patricia was loud and proud that she served in the U.S. Army.  She enjoyed cooking, gardening, family time, traveling and a nice breeze.  The places she talked most about were North Carolina’s weather, soaring in Disney World, the lobster in Maine, and missing out on moose in New Hampshire. She loved her cats, shopping, estate sales, walks with the grand-dogs and game shows.  Her greatest accomplishments were her children and her strong will to live.  She brought laughter, energy and joy that will leave behind a legacy and lasting memory to anyone that had the pleasure of knowing her.

She is survived by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, siblings, nieces and nephews.
