Patricia Frances Ferguson

March 13, 1942May 4, 2020

Patricia Ferguson, 78 of Sparta, NJ passed away on May 4th, 2020 and is survived by her husband of 58 years, Ronnie Ferguson Sr, their two sons, Ronnie of Sparta, David of Stillwater; their daughter Laura and her husband Jim and Pat's darling Granddaughter Emma, all of Sparta, as well as Pat's brother, Michael, who lives in New York City.

Pat was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 13, 1942, and maintained a love for New York City throughout her life.

Her home is in Sparta.

She and her three brothers and two sisters were raised by her mother Marie in the Iron-Bound section of Newark, NJ, which she liked to call 'Down Neck'.

Pat was born into poverty and hardship and she demonstrated, at an early age, her ability to persevere in the face of adversity.

As a teenager, she assumed the role of second mother to her younger brother, Michael, and went on to marry Ronnie, established a home in Sparta, raise a family of three children and achieve professional success in the finance industry.

She was a life-long Catholic that loved Jewish History, Opera, Cooking, Travelling and always her Family above all else.

Her family is comforted to know that she spent her last days in her home, where her husband provided tireless love and care.

Ronnie's single-minded devotion at the time of Pat's greatest need is a testament to the strength of her character, his character and the bond that they shared.

She has joined her dearly departed mother, Marie, sisters Olla and Franny and brother, Harold.

She lives on in those that she touched as we continue live and love.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted under Goble Funeral Home 22 Main St., Sparta, NJ 07871.

Sad to learn that Pat is no longer with us. She was such a sweet, dear person. I never heard anyone speak ill of her and she had a smile for everyone. To her Family, my deepest sympathy and sorrow for you at this time.
