PATRICIA ANN MIGNOGNA, 56, was reunited with her husband, Bill Mignogna, in Heaven on January 6, 2010, the 25th anniversary of the death of her mother Marie Bozzetto.
Pattie, as she was known to family and friends, devoted her life to her children, Danielle, Lauren, and Zachary, and fought an amazing and inspiring battle againstbreast cancer for twenty years to stay with them as long as she could. Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pattie graduated from Archbishop Prendergast High School in 1971 and attended St. Joseph's Univ. Pattie married her "Minnie" in 1973 and they moved to Palm Beach Gardens with their children in 1988. Here she made a new home for her family and established many close friends who became her "Florida Family." She was a warm, loving, compassionate and generous woman. Cancer is a war and her courage as she battled this horrible disease made her a hero to all who knew her.
In addition to her three children, she is also survived by her brothers, John, William, Patrick, and Michael Bozzetto and their families including eight wonderful nieces and nephews. Pattie is predeceased by her brother Edward and her father John Joseph Bozzetto.
The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 10, 2010 from 4:30 until 7:30 P.M. at QUATTLEBAUM FUNERAL HOME, West Palm Beach, FL with a Scripture Service to be held at 7:30 P.M. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 A.M. on Monday, at St. Clare Catholic Church, with Rev. William D. O'Shea, Pastor, officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the South Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® at Good Samaritan Medical Center, 1309 N. Flagler Dr., 5th Fl, West Palm Beach, Fl 33401 or by visiting www.komensouthflorida.org
