September 26, 1933March 8, 2021

Patricia V. Gruber of Ossining, NY, formerly of Croton on Hudson, NY and Royal Tunbridge Wells, England passed away March 8th, 2021. Patricia was born September 26, 1933, in Royal Tunbridge Wells, England to Major Geoffrey Sergeant and Elizabeth Royds. She became a Registered Nurse and began a long career in Nursing at Great Ormond Street Children Hospital in London, England. Her nursing career took her to Kenya and eventually landed her in the United States in the mid 60's where she remained until her passing. Patricia was an avid gardener and was known for having the most beautiful garden in the neighborhood. She was an enthusiastic traveler and most cherished her annual trips to England. Patricia was a loving mother to her son Nicholas (Jocelyn) and her two grandchildren, Alexandra and Jordan. She was a devoted sister to Jennifer and her nieces Sarah and Gillian. Also a loving Step-Mother to Chantal, Jonathan (Regina) and Amy (Kevin) and her Step Grandchildren Zack, Katie and Holden. She will forever be remembered in our hearts for her wry English sense of humor and her ability to Keep Calm and Carry On.

We will be holding a celebration of her life at a further date to be determined. Once the weather warms and we can gather outside safely together.

Patricia was a wonderful lady. She lived across the street from me growing up. She always showed an interest and concern toward my family. And what a gardner! My condolences to Nicholas and family.

They used to call us the three Brits. Now sadly we are down to two, Mavis and myself. Patricia was a good friend and a good cook. We enjoyed many good meals at her home. She enjoyed entertaining. Patricia and I used to walk almost every day, spring and summer along the river. In winter, she never wore a hat. We always finished our walks at her house or mine for a cup of tea and an English biscuit. We also did Meals on Wheels together, braving the elements. We had a few laughs when occasionally we got lost in the wilds of Croton. I will miss you, Patricia. Love, Roz.
