Patricia E. King, age 75, of Conneaut, died Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at her home with family by her side.
Patty was born on Dec. 18, 1941, in Youngstown, Ohio, the daughter of Charles and Chloe (Davis) Spencer. She was a 1959 graduate of Brookfield High School.
She was a former volunteer for the American Red Cross and was most notably known as "the boss of 82 Harrington Point", where she loved raising her family on Lake Erie.
She was a member of Corpus Christ Parish and attended St. Frances Cabrini Church. Patty was also a member of the Dining Diva's in Conneaut and the Card Club in Brookfield, Ohio.
Patty loved to swim in Lake Erie and once water skied from Harrington Point to Ashtabula and back behind her father's boat. Her lifelong dream was to live on Lake Erie and she accomplished that. As grandma, she loved to put on her ruby red lips and watch all the kids play.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a grandson Jacob King; a sister, Janine Vendemia; and a nephew, Matthew Zolnier.
Patty is survived by her husband, David King, whom she married on Sept. 25, 1959, at St. John Church in Sharon, Pa.; two sons, Chuck King of Masury, Ohio, and Craig (Joann) King of Conneaut; one daughter, Paula Gayle Grimm of Conneaut; two sisters, Kathy (James) Zolnier of San Ramon, Calif., and Carole (Chuck) Carrier of Brookfield, Ohio; grandchildren Sam, Charley (Andrea), Katelyn, Jesse, Brody, David and Duke (Annie); great-grandchildren, Cody, Cassie, Jameson, Zachary, and Cannon; and a great-great grandson, Sylis.
At Patty's request a Celebration of Life will take place later this summer.
Memorial contributions may be made in Patty's memory to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tenn. 38105, or the Hospice of the Western Reserve, 17876 St. Clair Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44110.
