As received from theMemorial Chapel & Plowe Funeral Homes:
Patricia “Pat” O’Connell of Houghton, formerly of Laurium, passed away on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at the age of 71.
Pat was born on February 3, 1949, in Calumet, Michigan to the late Gervais & Jean O’Connell. She was a loving and dedicated mother to Jeffrey and soon to be daughter -in-law Samantha. She had truly loved being a mother. You would always find her in the stands at every hockey practice and game for Jeff and taking him and his friends swimming, camping, or fishing.
In Pat’s younger years, she moved to Seattle, WA and worked for Boeing for a period of time before moving back to Laurium to raise Jeff among family. She later retired from Copper Country Mental Health.
Pat was always up to something weather it was travelling with her boyfriend, Mike, taking her dog Tigger for walks or spending time with her many friends at Arbor Green. Pat was an extremely kind and caring woman but also one of the strongest people you would ever meet.
Besides her parents, Pat was preceded in death by a daughter, Amy, who was taken from her far too young.
She is survived by her son Jeffrey (Samantha) O’Connell of Laurium.
a sister Marie (Joe) Ross of Hancock
and a brother Tom (Sylvia) O’Connell of Lower Michigan
numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a graveside blessing will take place later this spring in the Lakeview Cemetery in Calumet.
