Patricia Scanlon (Flaherty)
Age 92, of Duquesne Heights, peacefully on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. Beloved wife of the late James E. Scanlon; loving mother of Terrance (Linda Monteverde) Scanlon, Mara (John Roberts), Kevin (Karen Belisario) Scanlon, Mary Julia (Dennis DeFilippo) and Elizabeth (Mike DeAngelis) Scanlon; grandmother of Julia (Stefan Levine), Dr. Matthew (Amanda), James Scanlon, Dr. Caitlin Roberts (William Steigner), Ethan (Sonya) Roberts, Ryan and Nolan (Kayla) Scanlon, J.R.

A beacon of strength, “Patsy’s” quick wit and loving wisdom endeared anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. Her even nature and calm presence provided an anchor for her family. Known only by her grandchildren as “sensei,” she was, in many ways, a true teacher.
