After a valiant, seven year battle with Ovarian Cancer, Patrician Ann Gaitanos (nee Vidal), peacefully returned to her Lord.

I knew Patti when I use to live in Baltimore Md. with my son Anthony. Patti use to live across the alley from me on the corner house. Her youngest boy Anthony Gaitanos use to always come over to my house to play video games with my son who's name was also Anthony. I use to always call Patti's son little Anthony so he would know which Anthony I was talking to. I was always very fond of Patti, she was always such a very nice person. I always enjoyed our little chats when she would come over to my place to bring Little Anthony home for dinner. When I moved to Western Ny 19 years ago, me and Patti continued to keep in touch over Facebook. When I heard Patti was diagnosis with ovarian cancer I was devastated. I would always remembered Patti in my prayers and I was always hoping for the best. I wanted so badly to hear her say that her cancer was cured. It broke my heart when her son Anthony send me an message to let inform me that Patti was dying :( For seven long years Patti was always so very strong with her battle to fight this cancer. Even though Patti struggled so hard with her Chemo treatments, she always kept her spirit up. Patti has inspired me in so many ways. What I love the most about Patti is the great love she had for Jesus. I will always remember you Patti, may you rest in peace and may Jesus always hold you close to his heart. I love you Patti, I always will. Sending you many Hugs and Kisses up to Heaven. Your dear Friend Theresa Yingling

I only knew Patti through Facebook but we became good friends, she talked of wanting to visit me in the UK. She always asked after my children. She was so very supportive when in September 2017 I was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she made me promise to never stop fighting.

Patti my darling I promise to keep fighting

I remember Patti from John Ruhruh Elementary School. Also, all of her children. All the talks we would have while waiting for our children to get out of school. And, also at the Rec Center. Rest in peace my friend. Until we meet again.

As this time is really hard for all of us, I’m so lost for words! But onto the happy times...
We’ve had some many great memories working together at Walmart especially When we worked overnight together oh my let’s just say didn’t feel like we were at work with all the fun we had all night 😉 to you being just like a mom when I needed someone to speak to! But most of all every time Mr George would come in and I tell you Mrs Patti you better give him a kiss 😘 before he left you after bringing you to work! Either way I’m gonna miss you and until we meet again rest easy and peacefully, love you Mrs Patti
