Beloved mother, grandmother and sister Patricia Towne Ward died on September 13, 2019, after a long, difficult struggle with gastrointestinal issues.

Patricia was born in Burlington, Vt., on January 14, 1951. She grew up and attended schools in Milton. She lived and worked in Barre, Vt., California and most recently in Saginaw, Mich. She followed in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother as one of the very best pie makers in all of creation. She loved to find pie plates at garage sales that she could buy and give away with a pie to her friends.

Patricia is survived by her daughter Lisa; grandchildren Jayden, Ava and Jayda; brother Bruce; sister Pamela; and ex-husband, Harold. She was predeceased by her parents, Eugene and Arlene Towne; and daughter Megan.

Pat deserved better than she got from life, especially over the last three years, but she never became bitter or resentful. Please give a hug to someone whom you love in her memory.
