Obituary of Patricia Marie Friedman
Patricia Marie Friedman, age 62, was born in the Nation’s Capital on November 9th, 1957 and was a graduate of St. Patricks Academy in Washington DC. Pat gave her Life to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, while attending Mt. Oak Methodist Church, near Bowie, Maryland, in the 1990s. She quickly matured in her Faith and fulfilled a key role in the small church plant team that established the Mid Atlantic Community Church (MACC) in 2003. In 2015, she brought her passion for the Lord to Bay Area Community Church, once again, participating in and co-leading Missional Communities and women’s faith studies and service groups. Pat blossomed in every church home and was always seeking His Leading in her life to the next Mission Field. Service and selfless commitment, was always before while never seeking recognition nor accolades for her wonderful work. Pat led the hospitality ministry at the MACC for twelve years and participated in numerous outreach programs across the span of her Christian Walk to include participating in the Eastport Community Center after school care program. It was there that she spent her last Valentine’s Day; sharing, loving, and supporting the children. Pat and her husband Wayne met at Goddard Space Flight Center in the late 1970s and immediately fell in love. They were blessed with thirty-eight years of joyful, fulfilling marriage before Pat was peacefully taken home on Easter Sunday, 2020. While sleeping, in a moment, devoid of pain or suffering, Pat was Called Home by her Lord and Savior. The Lord Jesus loved her so! She is survived by the love and joy of her life, her two sons; Charlie and Vince. Still, Wayne’s two other children, Wendy and Jesse, were showered with Pat’s signature love, caring, and generosity in every instance; they were loved unconditionally as only she could. Pat was blessed to know five grandchildren. Pat was a beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend and never wavered in her commitment to Jesus Christ, who Reigned seated upon the Throne of her Heart. Her Life Song was to “Create Joy” which she fervently embraced as few others could. Whether through gifts, beautiful notes/cards, her contagious laugh, the way in which she “lit up” a room, or through her compassionate heart; when anyone needed just the right touch in their lives – Pat was there. She is loved deeply by so many; not for what she did for us all, but for whom she was in Christ Jesus.
