Mrs. Patricia Michaud

August 13, 1931January 7, 2021

Patricia Chase “Pat” Michaud, 89, a long term resident of Scituate, died peacefully on January 7th, 2021. Well known and loved in gardening and sailing circles, Pat was a Master Flower Show Judge and Horticulturist, was an active member of the Cohasset, Fox Hill, and Scituate Garden Clubs and was a recipient of the prestigious Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts Four Star Pin. She chaired the New England Spring Flower Show for several years and was well known for her beautiful gardens accenting the family home and her expert arrangements which were prized additions to many Scituate weddings. A true talent, Pat became an expert weaver who produced many exquisite Nantucket and Mattapoisett baskets.

She and her beloved husband, Earle, were lifelong members of the Scituate Yacht Club and she was one of two surviving founding members of the Blue Water Sailing Club. In addition, she and Earle were active members of the Satuit Boat Club. Their beautiful Bristol 45.5 yacht, “Sea Nest”, was well known in Scituate harbor, and they loved cruising her up the coast to Maine and racing her on Massachusetts Bay. An avid golfer, Pat was a long term member of Scituate Country Club where she enjoyed competing and socializing with the “Nine Holers” ladies group. During winter season, Pat and Earle enjoyed family weekends at their Tenney and Loon Mountain ski houses, where skiing mixed with games, music, great food and drink, and lots of fun.

Pat was born August 13, 1931, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island to Nathanial and Ruth Chase, and attended Pembroke College (then the women’s college of Brown University), graduating in 1952. She met Earle during their college years (he graduated Brown) and they were married in 1953. Pat and Earle moved later that year to Scituate and lived for many years at “The Nest”, part of the Thomas Lawson estate. Later, they moved to Earle’s family home on First Cliff. They loved to entertain and were well known for their lively Christmas Eve and Luminaria parties. Widowed in 2005, Pat continued to enjoy a full social life with their many life long friends, frequently entertaining at the “Cliff” and always accompanied by her faithful German Shepherd, Schatzi.

She is survived by her 2 sons, Ken and his wife Gale, Bruce and his wife Joanna, 2 daughters, Suzanne Larson and her husband Don, all of Scituate, Allison O’Sullivan and her husband Rich of Longwood, FL and grandchildren Brian and Jennifer (Ken), Michael and Tori (Sue), Andrew (Allison), and Jacqueline and Chase (Bruce) and four great grandchildren, Hayden, Reid, Samantha and Noah.

A memorial service is planned for later this year. Donations can be made in Pat's memory to Norwell VNA/Pat Roche Hospice Home, 120 Longwater Drive, Norwell, MA 02061 or Scituate Etrusco, 1 Common Street, Scituate, MA 02066. or the charity of your choice.

I worked for the family for 30 years and Pat would show up at the office on many occasions. Pat and Earle were very active people and whether it was going to a Bruins game, the Symphony or just heading to their N.H. home for the weekend I got to see Pat a fair number of times and she was always nice to me. Her and Earle (a man I greatly admired and respected) drove up to Revere to pay their respects to me and my family when my mom passed away. I have nothing but fond memories of this woman and her family. Rest In Peace Pat.

I was so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. Her contributions to the club and the seaside garden were ongoing. She was also a very warm and giving individual. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family at this time.

Suzanne, Kenny, Alison and Bruce, my thoughts, prayers and sympathy are with you all right now. In spite of the fact that Mom and I never quite made our "talked about" lunch date, I simply am having trouble realizing it will not happen now. Moral, I guess, is not to put off things at our age. John and I had wonderful years with your mom and dad. Mom and I hit the jackpot one night, out to dinner (just the two of us) at Tenney MT. We were handed quite a large tab at the end of our little soiree, but we hadn't eaten anything!! Guess why? That was our favorite story for a long time. I will miss her, as will so many. Love and sympathy to you all, Joan

Dear Michaud family,
Both Julie and I are so very sorry for the loss of your mom. With over 60 years of great memories we will certainly miss her.

I am certain she is with your dad and their beloved German Shepherd’s up in the “Sky Nest”

May she rest in peace and know how well loved she was.

Brad and Julie
