Patricia Bujanowski (nee Kilroy)

(February 20, 1943 - December 24, 2013)

According to Coco Chanel a woman should be both classy and fabulous; Patricia was both. She had a beauty that radiated not just from her appearance but from her being. She seldom left the house looking anything less than proper, but she didn’t need to rely on cosmetics for her it was simply natural. This was only magnified by her generous nature; if she found out you liked something that belonged to her, chances are it would become yours. It was rare for her to have a bad day, but even when she did it was never apparent. At her home in Riverside, there was a place for everything, and everything was in its place. While she could be found continuously cleaning and ironing, it was less about a meticulous need for orderliness than a reflection of her love of family. They were the center of her world and she could never do enough to make sure their home was perfect.
One Christmas Eve, Patricia was followed under the mistletoe by a young man named John. It wouldn’t be long until they would begin their 51 years of marriage. Together, their lives were blessed by their children: Debbie Santos (Richard) of Maryland, Donna Brookover (David) of Virginia and John “Jack” (Wendy) of Edgewater Park and again by their 9 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. Patricia is also survived by her mother, Dorothy Kilroy of Philadelphia, her brother, 3 sisters, 2 half-sisters and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Francis “Bucko” Kilroy and two brothers.
