Portland - Patricia L. Blackadar, 69, passed away at her home on October 31, 2018. Patty was born in Portland on June 17, 1949, the daughter of Joseph and Caroline (Fiato) LeClaire.

Patty grew up in an Italian neighborhood of East Deering and attended Portland schools. After graduation, Patty went on to make a career of being a bookkeeper and travel agent. Her most important role was being the mom to her two children, Amy and Josh.

I met Patty at Lowe's where we worked together. I left the store due to poor health but my most recent memory of her was one evening shift when we both polished off a box of Recees' Puffs cereal for dinner! She always would ask me when we started our shifts together if I was a grumpy pants that day, because of the one day we had together months before when I was feeling moody in the summer heat in the garden center. She was a very fun person and a hard worker. I remember training her on the register too! She was resilient and a good learner, and what I loved most that she was the queen of Snark! I'll miss seeing her and having someone to check in with my grump levels. I'm very sad to hear about her passing. She loved all of her children and both of her grand-pugs dearly. It always brought her so much joy when the pugs would come to the store for a visit-she was always glowing when her family stopped by.

Patty was a dear friend who was always there during life ups and downs with a quick witted comment to make me smile and sometimes blush. She did not mince words but, was one of the most soft hearted people I know.
She was so fiercely loyal to her family and friends and I will miss her dearly. My Love to her dear family who have lost a very special Mom and Grandmother. In the days before she passed, Patty and I talked about you all and she was very proud of you.

I attended school with Patty and although not close friends, I thought she was a lovely person. I’d see her from time to time and she always spoke and was friendly. May she Rest In Peace!

I remember going to school with Patty and going to her house on Savoy, as I grew up in East Deering on Sherwood Street. My thoughts and prayers go out to Patty’s family.

So sorry to hear of this news of Patty. I grew up in East Deering and went to Kindergarten through PHS with Patty and her cousin Mary Ann. Since I lived on the corner of Oakland and Sherwood, it was an easy walk to their home on Savoy St. I have many fond memories of Mrs. LeClair, Patty and the Fiatos.

Through the years I saw Patty on various occasions and she always exuded warmth and humor. May you find support in each other and lock her memories deep in your hearts and minds.

A long time friend,
