Patricia Ann Donato
"A BEAUTIFUL, BLUE EYED RED HEAD ON THE OUTSIDE WITH THE SOUL OF AN ANGEL ON THE INSIDE"
Patricia Ann Donato (Trish) of Wallingford, PA, passed away May 1, 2020 at age 57. She was born 1/18/1963, the middle child of (the late) Anthony A. Marinacci Sr and Gloria A. Marinacci, died peacefully at home surrounded by her loved ones.
Trish was raised in Brookhaven, PA where she graduated from Sun Valley High School in 1981. A truly dedicated and loving mother, Trish treasured her children, Joshua and Ricci-Lee, above all else. She was loyal and devoted to her husband John and shared an unbreakable bond with her mother Gloria, her brother, Anthony and her sister, Tina.
Her family was further blessed this past December with the arrival of her first grandchild, Maverick, whom Trish was able to meet and spend time with. The joy and happiness this brought her shone bright on her face like the sun and brought forth the biggest smile ever.
She worked hard all her life to care for her family. She spent many years at Sandrose Trophies, Pathmark and even while ill, she worked at the Marcus Hook Deli. She was unstoppable. In her leisure time, Trish loved to be surrounded by family and friends, hanging out by the pool, hosting backyard BBQ’s, playing badminton, cornhole and horseshoes. In her quiet time, she enjoyed knitting, crossword puzzles, playing cards and of course...watching her soaps with her cats all around her.
Trish was a loving, giving, selfless, beautiful person. She never complained or asked for help. She was strong, proud, admired and loved. Though she may be gone from this world, she will live in each of us forever.
Trish is survived by her husband John Donato, her 2 children Joshua Vanoster and Ricci-Lee Vanoster, her mother Gloria Marinacci, brother Anthony Marinacci Jr(Judy), sister Christine Miller(Rob) one grandchild and many nieces and nephews.
