known as “Pat” came to Eternal rest March 9, 2015 with many of her family members and dear friends praying and visiting her to the end, when her heart finally gave out. Born to Irish parents and the only child in Lackawanna, New York. She attended Sacred Heart Academy and graduated in the class of 1945. She often went back for class reunions. Her painting of Sacred Heart still hangs when you enter the main door at the Academy. Shortly after high school, Patricia married John MacInnis and 7 years later moved to Phoenix, where she lived in St. Mary’s Parish. In 1967, she moved to North Phoenix where the family attended St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. In 1976, Pat lost her husband of 29 years.

MacInnis Clan’s.” She was preceded in death by her dearest friend Bob, a retired Marine soldier, and painter of fine arts who made a pencil drawn rose look alive and soft, for the last 35 years.
