She is, also, survived by her sister- in–law, Sharon Stella, and several nieces and nephews: Holly Leahy, Michael Cass, Jenn Cass, Sara Zesski, Patti Strohla, and Peter Strohla. Pat graduated from the University of Hartford in 1959 and worked as a business management trainer in Cambridge, New York, and San Francisco for 16 years. She performed in community theatre in Cambridge, starring in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Her last 20 years of work were spent with the Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C. She was a specialist in water ferries and transportation for the physical and mentally challenged. When Pat retired around 1997, she moved to her beloved Cape Cod which she had been introduced to at an early age. She treasured the beaches and the water.

She served on the Alter Guild, was a Liturgical Reader, baked the communion bread for 15 years and lovingly prepared meals for Church events and those in need. Until recently, Pat was a volunteer driver and scheduler for Fish. She loved Chatham’s First Night and the 4th of July parades and volunteered in them for many years. She was a volunteer for the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center. The family would like to thank the “village" of Pat’s friends from St Christopher’s Episcopal Church, the caregivers from Bridget’s Home health Care and the Hospice nurses from Broad Reach Healthcare.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Pat Cass. She was a beloved friend and a wonderful and generous supporter of CapeCod Theatre Company/Harwich Junior Theatre, Inc. She graciously prepared delicious hors d'oeuvres for our opening nights and we always looked forward to her being in our audience. Pat deeply understood and appreciated the unique mission of our theatre. Her sensitivity and inspiring words will not be forgotten. She will live in our hearts. Thank you, Pat. May her memory eternally be for a blessing. With love and gratitude, Nina Schuessler and Tamara Harper.

Pat was one of my favorites ! I loved her sass ! And she was just as sweet. We always laughed ! We took the time to get to know each other and enjoyed each other stories. When I moved into a house i didn’t have one garden tool she made me come over and passed on her garden tools that she loved and couldn’t use anymore. Every time I use them I think of her and smile to myself one of the nicest things anyone has done . she also gave me her mittens one day cause she didn’t want me to be cold at my sons soccer game . Tough as nails and one of the sweetest people I’ve known . I can honestly say Pat was my friend and I won’t forget her . I’m happy you are breathing easy now Pat ❤️❤️
