Patricia A. Scalice, 75, a retired public school teacher fondly remembered by her family and friends as a beautiful soul with a kind heart and vibrant spirit, died peacefully at her home in Great Kills on Thursday, May 14.

She was also an active member of several social clubs on Staten Island, including the American Committee on Italian Migration, the Red Hats, Italian American Women of Staten Island, the Retiree Chorus and Retiree Dine-Around Club (both through the United Federation of Teachers) and the Great Kills Swim Club of which she was a member for over four decades.

Patricia is survived by her son Michael and daughters Jennifer and Donna, and her grandson Ryan. She was laid to rest in Resurrection Cemetery next to her husband, Vincent.

I was on a cruise with Vinnie and Pat when we decided to get off the boat and go to a casino-we we’re having a great time playing the machines when we looked at the time looked at each other and luckily just made it back to the boat laughing all the way👍❤️❤️

I am so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing I have fond memories of her as I was growing up. I enjoyed our visits to our grandma mainly because I would get to see my cousin Pat. I would like to leave a memorial if you have decided on any.
Prayers for your family and may your faith give you comfort and peace.
Love, Your cousin. Debby

There are so many wonderful memories I have had the pleasure of experiencing with my dear friend Pat. Beginning with being on the PTA to PS 32, where Pat was the refreshments chairwoman. Each time Pat put up the 100 pot urn, she would ask, how much coffee should I put in the urn, well regardless of her asking, she always put in way too much which put us all on a cafe high for the rest of the day! We traveled together many times and each time we were in Mexico or the Carib, Pat's desire to swim or see the Dolphins was always at the top of her list. One vacation, she actually got Vinny to take her twice to see the Dolphins...the guys began to make Dolphin sounds to Pat for laughs, and her great sense of humor enjoyed the teasing. Actually Pat was one of the biggest teasers of them all...you could always count on her when arriving to our pool club, to say something like, "oh no, look who's here" or "who invited you?" ...she always cracked us up with her gentle and humerous teasing! Cant imagine going to the pool without those greetings of hers. Her enthusiasm over the simple things, like getting the perfect clear chocolate martini at the Marina, or an apple martini or hearing a Katy Perry song or going out or away with friends, was always a pleasure to see her face light up! Pat's heart of gold, her loving spirit and kindness, generosity and graciousness will be sorely missed, but vibrantly remembered. Rest peacefully with Vinny! With heartfelt love and rememberance!
