Patricia A. Smith

May 6, 1929August 1, 2017

ORLEANS - Patricia A. Smith, 88, of Orleans, passed away August 1, 2017 at The Woodlands at Pleasant Bay in Brewster. Known as "Pat" to her group of friends in the lower-Cape area, Pat was a long-time resident of Orleans.

She was an avid reader and frequent visitor to the Orleans public library. Pat loved the Cape's natural beauty, spending her early retirement years boating and clamming in the inlets and coves of the region. As a backyard nature observer, she could readily identify dozens of birds, usually just by listening to their calls and songs.

Pat will be lovingly remembered by her friends, Norma May, Valerie May and George Stuteville.

Graveside services will be at 3pm in the Orleans Town Cemetery on August 16th, 2017.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions can be made to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.

Notes of comfort may be made to her family at:

My heart just broke just now hearing of Pats passing. My thoughts go directly to Norma and Pats family .I want to express to you all the sorrow I am feeling for your loss. Pat has and always will hold a very special place in my heart. I will forever remember her fondly.

For more than 20 years, I sat across from you at the table for so many hours as you filled in my lack of knowledge about such diverse subjects as Cape Cod birds, PGA golfers, Patriot linebackers, and the best local lobster rolls. I will miss your good humor and sharp smarts. I am so grateful that I had a chance to be your friend.
