Patricia "Pat" Stanley, 69, passed away on Sunday, December 27 2020 with family at her bedside. She was predeceased by her husband Glenn Stanley, her mother Vivian Bailey and stepfather Leonard James, her brother Lawrence "Larry" Bailey, and Grand Aunt Viola Bailey.
Pat is survived by her loving son William Pruitt and his wife Jennifer, brother Ronald Bailey and wife Dorothy, nieces Rachel, Danielle and her namesake Patricia, as well as a nephew, Ron. She is also survived by a host of grand nieces, grand nephews and cousins.
Born in Harlem, New York on November 1, 1951, Pat was a bright and beautiful young lady who was truly loved by all who knew her. Through all her life's accomplishments, nothing made her prouder or gave her greater joy than her son William. Life was not always perfect; there were some ups and downs but Pat persevered and made a life for herself and her son, settling in Peekskill, New York.
Pat was a fierce advocate for those battling addiction, and was often one who people went to for words of hope and encouragement. Her fellow advocates became family to her.
Pat worked for Unlimited Care, Inc. as a Care Coordinator for 18+ years where she created another family of friends and coworkers. Long-time friend Marlene Vazquez shared in many good times throughout those years.
Pat touched every person she met in one way or another. Her smile was a warm and welcome sight to all.
The family appreciates the support shown to her by her friends, especially Eddie Nazario.
We also want to thank the staff at NY Presbyterian Hospital ICU for the care shown to our family in such difficult times. Funeral Service's are entrusted to Curry & Giordano Funeral Home. A visitation will be held on Tuesday January 5, 2021 from 4:00pm To 7:00 pm
