|We know... That all Patricia would ever ask at this time is... “That You Remember Her Loving You”|
On Saturday, April 1, 2017 Our dearest sister, Patricia Ann Eletto, was lifted and carried
to Heaven on the wings of her Guardian angels,
Our Mother Frances Eletto and Our Father John J. Eletto.
Patricia or “Pat”, as so many of you knew her, was one of the happiest, caring, loving, supportive and giving people this universe has ever seen.
We are the most fortunate people in the world because we got to share our lives with her as our sister and best friend.
We created this page as memorial for all of us to share our thoughts, memories, stories, photos, and even messages to Patricia “Pat”.
We thought this dedication would be an appropriate tribute to her memory for the many people whose lives she has touched.
Our sister Patricia will continue to be there for everyone now more than ever and she will see this and love it!
Patricia was the happiest! Thank you all for being part of her life and extended family!
We know… That all Patricia would ever ask at this time is..
“That You Remember Her Loving You”
Please visit this site as often as you like to view or share more memories.

To Our Dear Sister Patricia
We know and saw Mommy and Daddy come and lift you up to make your journey peaceful. We know you are all together now and we will join you when the time comes for us to be complete again.
The three of us had the most precious gift of all, the most wonderful parents, the most wonderful childhood and most of all each other!
Throughout our whole lives you were our Rock.
We are Sisters and Friends and have an unbreakable bond even through the afterlife.
You looked at the world through rose colored glasses and saw the positive and beauty in everything—We need those glasses now Patricia more than ever!
We know you are happy now – you always were a Happy person—but now you are comfortable and free to dance…
“Up and About” Well… You finally are “Up and About” dancing like Ginger Rogers like you always dreamed in your leopard heels and beads!!!!
We finally made it to Our Dream despite all the obstacles in the way… We are grateful for the time we had together but it just wasn’t enough ... our dream was cut short.
“We may not have it all together, but together we have it all!”
You told us this every day our dear sister we will always be together. We could never be complete without you. We know you will stand beside us to carry us to you when the time comes for us to be together again.
Forever in our hearts and souls our Guardian Angel
We will miss you more than …………. No word can ever describe
Our Hearts Are Broken
“WE LOVE YOU ‘MY SISTER’ GOODNIGHT”
Love You For Eternity, Ann Marie & Frannie
"Through a series of contacts I just heard the news of Pat's passing. We go a long way back.....Back to Brooklyn and worked together for many years in the banking industry. When I decided to leave and pursue a career as a nurse, she was always my biggest supporter and always told me I'd be the 'perfect' nurse. Many years have gone, however Pat always remained in contact and always reminded me of how proud she was that I chose a new career path. I'll miss our emails and I'll miss not being able to visit you in your new home, a place I know you and your sisters planned, enjoyed and loved...It was bold leaving Brooklyn, but then again you always were! Ron and I always enjoyed your company and will miss you! PEACE, LOVE and HAPPINESS in HEAVEN! Anthony and Ron"
"Patre, this is up there with one of the hardest things to write... where to begin is the hard part... from car pools, to holidays to dinners and parties and to everything in between... you were always a "constant". you laughed with us when we drove you crazy, you were calm when we were going nuts and you LOVED us all the time. I say us because I add AnnMarie and Frannie to this... I don't know what to say.. there are no words, but I can tell you this... I love you, I always have and always will and I got yours girls I promise you that.... but you keep watching over us ok??...I will take it from this end but you take it from your end and we will be ok... and when Dancing Queen comes on, well I'm going to know that is you saying it's all ok..I love you sister.. Rest in Peace xooxox"
"I only got to know Pat through work these past 6 months but am glad I had the opportunity. She was such a kind, sweet, easy-going, and hard-working person. The mass at Our Lady of Las Vegas was a fitting tribute to her--she will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones at this time."
"Pat - your smile will continue to light the way for others to follow."
"A beautiful person, inside and out. May you rest in peace with your Mom and Dad. Our deepest condolences to Annmarie and Frannie. xoxo Love Colleen, Robert, & Brianna Donnery"
"DEAR FRAN AND FAMILY SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR SISTER OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND THE FAMILY SHERYL AND BARRY"
"Dear Ann Marie and Frannie,
Please accept our sincerest condolences upon Patricia's passing. May she rest in the sweetest peace in God's kingdom. I'll always remember her smile and how much she loved her family.
With love from Teresa, Mike and the extended Brandow family"
"Pat, You were such a wonderful and caring woman. Thank you for always lending me your ear. Even though you had you own challenges you were always smiling and always offering advice. I will miss you! God has another Angel!"
"Side by side or miles apart sisters are always connected by ❤️!!!
Thank you for allowing me the privledge in sharing this beautiful memorial. We are sending hugs and kisses your way."
We are so Grateful and Blessed for having you in our Family and in our Lives. Love , All Of Us"
"Pat, all of us at 2265 are shocked and saddened by your sudden death. We were so happy that you had retired and were living out your dream of moving to Las Vegas and spending the years with your sisters and their families. You are enjoying your reward and we will keep your sisters in our prayers. God bless - Virginia and Liz (6N)"
"I met Pat on her first day at DealerTrack. She was hired to be my boss. After the introductory one-on-one meeting I knew this was a special person. Sure we talked about business experiences and the DT environment but we also talked about our personal backgrounds -- the "where you from" stuff. And because of the similarity of ages (I am 6 years older than Pat) we discovered that a girl from Brooklyn and a guy from the Bronx had many similar experiences in a New York that was long gone. Whether it was after a business discussion or just me strolling into her office the talk focused on our lives, past & present, and not on business. We did a lot of sharing of "hey you remember this or that" and we always parted company with a smile on our faces. We were friends. I retired a few years ago and we stayed in touch even over a lunch or two. I was thrilled that she finally retired from DT and moved to Las Vegas area with her 2 great sisters. She was so happy. That's the main reason for the shock to hear about her passing on to heaven so suddenly. Naturally I assumed that the name I was told was wrong. It couldn't be that Pat. It had to be someone else named Pat. But no, God needed another pure soul and it was her turn. I will miss her and I will remember her and when I get up there I will look her up and I suspect she will be at a Sunday dinner with her family and I know she'll invite me to sit down and grab a plate."
"Pat - you will truly be missed. Probably the nicest person I ever worked with, at both Chase and Dealertrack. You gave everyone around you a pleasant smile, nice words & an overall positive vibe to everything you did. Rest in peace."
"Pat such a loving kind spirit. Always had a smile, a kind word and so very helpful in whatever way she could be. She was just very genuine and a joy to be around and work with. You will be forever missed.....
"It's been almost one week and I wake up every day hoping I had a bad dream. Your life was a gift to all of us. The most kind, generous, loving person I have ever met. We started as coworkers and ended up close friends. You were there for all of my life's biggest moments, and I am glad that we shared them together. I will cherish all our lunches, dinners, talks, and laughter together. You had this special way of making everyone feel they had a special bond with you that no one else had. I know many of us feel that way and I am forever grateful for that. Rest now, my friend, and we'll give each other great big hugs again some day."
"I wish I had known you before this year, you were so happy, chipper and a wonderful smile to see everyday. You will be missed and thought of regularly. You are up in heaven smiling down on us all. Giving them a run for their money up there New York Style. It was my pleasure to have met you. Soar high with the angels. Rest well. We love you."
"I am lucky to say that I was able to work with Pat for close to ten years; but feel privileged to be able to call her my friend during that same time. Pat was always so supportive of me and I think it gave her great pride to see me grow both personally and professionally right before her eyes. She had this rare quality that whenever you were talking to her she made you feel as if that was the most important thing going on at that very moment. Seeing and hearing the heartfelt tributes for Pat, which span across the country, just shows what a profound impact she had wherever she went. I am a better person for having known her and will forever be grateful for the positive impact she had on my life. You will be greatly missed my dear friend."
"Our Dearest Patricia -
Our hearts are broken. We will never forget your smile that lit up a room...we will never forget the love and kindness that you showed our entire family. Heaven has a new angel...You...God has reunited you with your Mom and Dad and all three of you now will always be with your beautiful sisters Fannie and Ann Marie. I always referred to the three of you as "The Three Musketeers". The love and support the three of you had for each other was immeasurable. I know Patricia that you will always be with them...and I know they will keep your memory alive as all of us who knew you and loved you dearly. Rest in eternal peace our dear friend...we love you. Denise, Vinny and Vincent"
I overheard Green Day's Good Riddance and I smiled and cried at the same time as it reminded me of your 50th birthday celebration. Thank you for being my mentor and my friend. I miss you already.
'It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life.'"
"My dearest Pat-
I always enjoyed cracking up and having dinner with you when I came to New York. You were a true gift, and just visiting with you always made me feel like a treasured friend. I will miss you forever, but am glad I have another angel watching over me. Be free my dear friend!"
I haven't stopped thinking about you since I heard the news Saturday night. I just want to tell you that you had such an impact in my life. I will forever be grateful for all the years I had the privilege to call you my friend. You were always there for me during the good, the bad and the ugly. You always had words of encouragement and guidance. Always offering to help in any which way you could. "God has a plan" is what I used to tell you. Now more than ever I need to trust him even though I may not understand why. You never got to meetup with DD in Vegas but now you are both in God's presence. I take comfort in knowing you passed away peacefully in your sleep. I will miss you and know that this is not a "goodbye", this is an "I'll see you later. Fly butterfly...fly...."
I love you! I wish I had met you sooner in life. I wanted to thank you. I went through some tumultuous times this past year . . . You were always checking on me and were more worried about me than yourself. Such a beautiful soul, always smiling, laughing and joking, with nothing but the kindest and most positive things to say . . . truly an angel on Earth. With your own challenges, you realized the power of love in every form and how that's the ONLY thing that can heal. I was absolutely blessed that you were brought to NCC. Peoples' lives are often used as a positive example to guide others and you have touched an unfathomable amount of hearts, ultimately making the world a better place, leaving a legacy. Your impact has shaken me to my core and helped drag me out of the darkest of days. I vow to be more like you every day, center myself and continue to count the blessings that I do have. Your sweet words, thoughtful demeanor, and compliments to me on my hardest days always strengthened me and provided the light I needed. You helped me find my way back home, to my true self, leading, setting examples and always striving to be a gracious human being. Thanks for the reminder and I can't wait to see you again! I plan on taking a trip to Prague in the future, in honor of you, and picking up one of those beautiful necklaces, as a physical reminder of true strength and gratitude, just two of the many stunning lessons you exemplified. You are one of my greatest teachers and inspirations. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sending all the love and light, and keeping you in my heart always,
"I have so many thoughts and memories going through my head right now, I remember my first friend, Patricia playing on the swings in your yard on West 6th Street, the arts & crafts fun we had with glue and glitter getting all over us and laughing so hard!! I remember watching tv in your house and laying on our stomachs on pillows on the floor in your living room and sharing our dreams with each other. Life took us in different directions but I will always remember and cherish our times together. Patricia you were my first friend and I will never forget your beautiful smile and gentle spirit. I love you my dear friend and will never forget you, you are an angel now and I know you are watching over your dear sisters Ann Marie and Frannie who loved you so dearly. Rest well my friend❤"
