Patricia “Patty” Ann Pavlinch, 88, of Patterson Twp., died Sunday, April 16, 2023.
Born September 24, 1934 in Monaca, she was the daughter of the late Samuel and Anna (Marotti) Setting.

She is survived by her children, Christine (John) Jewell, Carolyn “Sis” (Michael) Engle, Cindy (George) Elmer, Marianne (Rob) Cook, Richard (Janet) Pavlinch and AnnMarie “Chookie” (Geoff) Karlen; 14 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and a brother, Samuel Jr. (Janice) Setting.
