Patricia Bertell

February 3, 1952December 29, 2019

Patricia (Pat) Rose Bertell, 67, was born on February 3, 1952 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and entered Heaven December 29, 2019 in Jupiter, Florida after a very short 6 week fight with cancer. She fought a hard battle with great dignity and spirit.

Pat grew up in Dormont, PA, and graduated from Keystone Oaks High School. She received an Associate Degree in Mechanical Drafting from Dean Tech and worked for several years as a Draftsman in the coal industry. While working for Eastern Associated Coal she met her future husband, Tom. She then went on to get her bachelors from Strayer University in Germantown, Maryland. Pat worked as a Purchasing Agent for several organizations and as a Contracts Manager for HJ Foundation before retiring in 2014.

She attended St Peter’s Catholic Church in Olney, Maryland where she served as a Eucharistic Minister and taught CCD for several years.

Pat and Tom became “The Bertells” on August 11, 1984 in Pittsburgh and were married for 35 years. Tom & Pat retired to their beautiful home on The Island at Abacoa in 2014. Pat transformed the house into a home including picking the house paint colors, tile & furniture while still working in Maryland with the help of her sister Gloria and best friend Jan from Pittsburgh.

Pat loved the sparkle and knew her jewelry. She liked to volunteer at the Saint Vincent DePaul Thrift Store in Jupiter helping customers in the jewelry department and other store activities. She also loved shopping for flowers and planting in her home gardens. She also greatly enjoyed her time with her Godchildren, Lynzee Halligan and Nick and Tiffany Evans.

Her Legacy will be her willingness to mentor, support & teach others.

Pat is greatly missed by her husband, Tom Bertell, also her sister, Gloria Halligan and brother in law Richard who had recently moved from Connecticut to Florida so the sisters could finally live in the same state and enjoy their retirements together.

She is predeceased by her parents, Anthony & Rose Amedure.

Services for Pat will be held at 10am, Monday, February 3rd, 2020 at Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church, in the Chapel, 13591 Prosperity Farms Rd, Palm Beach Gardens, FL. A reception will follow immediately in St. Patrick’s Parish Hall. Information can be found on the website -

Pat was a friend to all animals especially her cats and was always ready to help a wandering turtle find its way across the road. Flowers can be sent to St Patrick’s Church. Donations can be sent to Loggerhead Marine Life Center in Juno Beach, Florida.

I met Pat over 30 years ago. I applied for a job and she hired me. She was my manager. After a while we became close friends and went out for lunch every day. We both moved on to other work positions but always stayed in touch.
Pat was one of a kind. She mentored me, educated me and because of her I am a better person. She was kind and thoughtful and had a big heart.
I am broken hearted.
A friend like her comes around only once in a lifetime.

Reading about her gifts, dedications and interests- resembles that of Gloria and their wonderful parents we had the pleasure of meeting here at Gloria , Lynzee and Dick’s home in CT. May you all realize her presence and the peace of this guardian angel in your hearts forever.
