Patricia M. Crawford, age 79, of Pittsburgh (Brookline), PA, passed away peacefully on October 24, 2023, Wife of the late Henry Myron Crawford; beloved mother of Patricia D’Ascenzo (Fred), Deborah Uhl, and Cheryl Fascetti (Tony); sister to Bonnie Pastorious, Linda Horan, Barbara Misday, Marcella McKivitz, and the late Paul Kovalcik; grandmother of George Uhl III, Jessica Fascetti, Kaitlyn Uhl, Frederick D’Ascenzo, Dominic Fascetti, and Thomas D’Ascenzo; and great grandmother to Zoey Jenkins, Maveryk McClain, and Marley McClain. Patricia is also survived by her lifelong friends William (Billy) Reese, Geraldine (Geri) Cable, and Kathleen Farrell in addition to her beloved dog Gibbs, and other family and close friends.
Patricia was loved by many and easily made friends with strangers she met throughout her life. She will be remembered by her smile, her quirky nature, and being true to her deep ‘hunky’ roots.
She was a transplant recipient, having had a liver transplant in 2012. She looked at her transplant date as the start of her new life and lived each day grateful to the hero angel who chose to be an organ donor. Since her transplant, she lived by the motto, “You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it”.
