Patricia A. (Tully) Hannon, of Dorchester, Quincy and Kennebunkport, ME, passed away on December 6, 2017.
Patsy was born in Boston on October 23, 1931 to Richard and Elizabeth Tully. She was raised in Dorchester’s St. Mark’s Parish and graduated from Cardinal Cushing High School in 1949. Patsy held an administrative position at Walter Baker Chocolate Factory.
On September 23, 1951 Patsy went to a dance and met Walter J. Hannon from Quincy. This was the beginning of a 66 year romance filled with love and laughter. Patsy and Walter married on October 12, 1953 and live in North Quincy for 12 years before moving to Wollaston in 1965, where they remained, raising their 5 children.
Patsy wore many hats over the years: wife, mother, First Lady and grandmother. Patsy was a gifted seamstress, knitter and quilter. Her children and grandchildren have beautiful pieces of her art to cherish and keep her memory alive. Patsy was a great cook and liked nothing more than a table full of family and friends at both her Quincy home and her very special home in Maine.
Patsy enjoyed attending all of her childrens’ and grandchildrens’ athletic, artistic and academic events. Patsy and Walter had a wonderful life, from dinner at their special Italian Restaurant to their long 4PM walks on Gooch’s Beach. Patsy was a kind, gentle and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
