MARS, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – On October 19, 2020, Patricia J. Marzula passed through death surrounded by family. She was 81 years old.
Patty was well-loved by all who knew her. She possessed a charitable spirit and gave generously to her church, civic organizations, social causes and political campaigns supporting her conviction to democratic principles.
Patty was an avid reader and kept herself well informed. She was always in the middle of a new novel and was happy to pass along a good read. She enjoyed lively discussions about politics and intently followed the financial markets. Patty loved spending winters at her second home in Marco Island, Florida where she welcomed visits from family and friends. She was an amazing mother and grandmother and instilled in them the family values which she cherished. Her love and support will be sadly missed.
Patty was predeceased by her parents, the late Ray and Mary Creswell; her husband of 60 years, John and her youngest son, Vincent.
She is survived by her children, Michele Joiner (Don), Leslie Johnson (Tim), John Marzula II (Diane) and Lisa Jenkins (Chuck); her daughter-in-law, Kim Marzula (widow of Vincent); 14 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. She is also survived by her sisters, Marie Sanfelice (widow of Bucky) and Agnes Lockley (Harry); a brother-in-law, Sam Marzula (Mary Ann) and a sister-in-law, Wanda Marzula (widow of Chuck).
