Patricia Ann Armandi
August 30, 1955 – July 14, 2021
Auburn – Patricia “Patty” (Cloutier) Armandi, 65, passed away on July 14th, 2021. She was a resident of the Androscoggin Hospice House in Auburn. Patty was born in Lewiston on August 30, 1955 and was the daughter of Robert and Jacqueline (Brin) Cloutier. She graduated from Saint Dominic Regional High School in 1973, but not before discovering her love in Faith, People and Sports, especially cheerleading and hockey. In 1981, she met the love of her life, husband Marcus Armandi and the couple married in 1982. They started their journey together in Lewiston before settling in the Chisholm area of Jay, where they raised four boys and one daughter. Unless working, Patty and Marcus were always together, re-defining what it meant to be best friends, not just a married couple. They did everything as one and that is how they preferred it. They celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary this past November. Patty’s love for Marcus and family and her faith in God was at the heart of her strength, keeping her positive through the many trials and tribulations that happen in life, including her fight against breast cancer. Despite her circumstances, she always put herself second behind her family and friends. Her personality was infectious, genuine, and sunny bright, nobody could deny that but nothing could compare to the way she knew how to love. Those who were fortunate enough to receive it understand what that means. Patty devoted her life to her family, never missing an important event, cooking a meal for her boys or packing Marcus a lunch before a shift in the Paper Mill. But nothing brought her more happiness and pride than watching her son’s play sports. She never missed a game or practice (hundreds of practices), regardless of how far the drive, time of day or type of sport, you could always count on her, cheering for her home team (The Jay Tigers). She was the best, the perfect fan. Patty loved the ocean – the crisp salty air, bright sun and gentle breeze of Maine’s coast brought her back to her childhood with her parents; those family beach days meant the world to her. She loved to reminisce about the past with her family & friends and the fond memories growing up in Lewiston on Newbegin Avenue. She also loved the Maine woods. Marcus built a camp house they would frequent for family vacations, fishing & hiking explorations since 1985. This past Memorial Day Weekend, Patty was the star of the show again, making an appearance in the back woods to watch her grand babies play together. Nothing could keep her from her family. She cherished the bond created with her Food City co-works, who quickly transformed into friends and now considered family. Those trips back and forth to her office off East Avenue in Lewiston energized her. She looked forward to it - plus she could be back in her home town, with all the memories for those 8 hours a day. She worked until she could no longer – never wanting to let the team down. Special thanks to Food City and her girls in the office for all the support they have provided to Patty & family over her 20 plus years of service. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by a brother, Robert “Bobby” Cloutier and a son Bryan Robert “Boonie” Armandi. She is survived by her husband Marcus Armandi and brother’s David (wife Cindy) & Jeffery Cloutier, her daughter, Kelly Ryder (husband Ralph) and her son’s Derek, Dana (wife Courtney) and Joshua (wife Dawn) Armandi. She loved her grand babies more than anything and is survived by nine beautiful ones – Auriana, Jazmine, Austin, Eliza, Layla, Aisla, Jonah, Isabella & Phoebe. Her strong spirt and memories will always live through her grand babies. Patty was the backbone and meant the world to her family. The family flowed through her. She gave everything and dedicated her life to her husband, her 5 children and 9 grandchildren. She had a special relationship with each one - you felt like you were at the center of the universe. She taught strength, positivity, kindness, faith, patience, generosity, and above all, how to love unconditionally. She had a tremendous impact on many lives - her friends, family and all of those graced by her presence are truly blessed. Patty was a one of a kind treasure who will be forever missed but her spirit, love and memory will continue to live through her family.
