Rinaldi on October 3rd, 1961 at United Hospital in Port Chester, NY to Ann and John Rinaldi. When she was 3 years old her parents divorced and her mom married a wonderful man, Donald Drummond, who adopted her and her two older brothers, John and Tom. She grew up in Port Chester and lived at 264 Willett Avenue. She attended OLM and Edison Elementary schools and graduated from Port Chester Sr. High in 1980. Patti, as all of her friends and family called her, was employed at United Hospital in Food Service for nearly 25 years and enjoyed her time there serving the patients their meals and making friends. After her mother was diagnosed in 1999 with early Alzheimer’s, Patti was her loving full-time caregiver for over 10 yrs. She moved up to Rockland County with her mom in 2006 and after her mom’s passing in 2010, worked as a salesperson at J.C. Penny in the Palisades Mall until it closed. Patti had been a resident of Nanuet, living at the Middlewood Sr. Center Park Apartments since 2019. She loved to care for people and animals alike, especially her cat, Tabitha. She also enjoyed baking, doing crafts, shopping and going out to eat.
