Patricia was born on March 17, 1944, in Batavia, N.Y., to Anthony and Theresa (Tenney) Bartz.
She is survived by her beloved husband, Larry MacConnell, of 34 years. Patricia enjoyed traveling with her husband, friends and family, sewing, painting and spending time with her friends in Naomi’s Circle. She was the best Mom and Nana to her daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchild, always taking the time to play with them and attend their sporting events. Her greatest joys were being a wife, mom and nana.

Patricia was a loving, kind and generous spirit, always putting others before herself. Her presence and smile would light up a room. Our lives will never be the same without her.
