Patricia had performed just about everywhere, and with just about everyone in the world of theatre She was kind, warm, and had a wonderful wit that was always leavened with elegance and charm. She was a dear friend to me and to many. There has never been a better way to spend an evening in New York than to sit down for a meal at Joe Allen’s on 46th Street in the company of Patricia and her longtime love, Jane.

Patricia was a sparkling gem in this all-too-often degraded world, and a class act in every respect. We shall not look upon her like again.

Funeral services are tomorrow, Friday, May 19 at 10:30 AM  at St. Jean Baptiste Church, Lexington Avenue and East 76th St. Burial to follow. Anyone wishing to come to the cemetery should contact Jane Trichter at 212-737-7693.

There will be a gathering at Joe Allen Restaurant, 326 West 46th Street, on Friday from 4pm to 5:30pm. Please come and lift a glass to Patricia. All welcome.
