She was born in Queens, New York to Sarah and Patrick McMahon on June 5th,1939. She was the second of three children.

Her younger brother Francis McMahon, and wife Patricia, preceded her in death, but were always a cherished part of the family.

Patricia was a loving mother and grandmother. She enjoyed visiting and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She had such a kind heart and positive outlook on life that reflected on how she interacted with everyone. Her smile and sense of humor lit up a room and brought joy to those around her. In her free time, she enjoyed traveling, hiking, boating and camping with Jim. She enjoyed spending time by the lake with her grandchildren, long walks with her canine baby, Lilly.

One of the favorite memories she would reminisce about was when her mother took her to Broadway shows as a child. She saw Frank Sinatra at a NYC Theatre and she appeared in the audience of the Howdy Doody Show at one time. Later in life she enjoyed attending shows at the Wick Theatre in Boca Raton, Florida.
