Patricia Mary Mehalko, age 79, of McAdoo, passed away on July 8, 2020 at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Cedar Crest, due to congestive heart failure.
Patricia was born on March 14, 1941, in Hazleton, to Dorothy (Billig) and John Mehalko, who both preceded her in death. She was a member of Church of All Saints, McAdoo.
Patricia, who was lovingly called "Pat" or "Trishy" lived a modest and colorful life. She enjoyed being "Mom" to her cats and loved Conway Twitty, rainbows and anything green. Her favorite ways to pass time were simple pleasures like word finds, puzzles, playing solitaire and watching game shows. It filled her heart with joy when she played Parcheesi, Dominoes, Trouble or any board games with her nieces and nephews. Patricia was honored last year to be the flower girl in her niece's wedding. She was loved by all and will be fondly remembered for her whimsical ways.
Patricia is survived by her sister Dorothy Hinkle and husband John, of Weatherly; brother John Mehalko Jr. and wife Dolores, of Weatherly; nieces, Dorothy Breslosky and husband Jim, Kim Sonntag and husband Jeff and Lisa Cambeis; nephews, John Hinkle Jr. and wife Mary and Shawn Mehalko; plus many great nieces, nephews and cousins.
