Catherine M. Patinella

December 8, 1946 ~ October 1, 2021 (age 74)


Catherine Marie Patinella was born December 8, 1946 in Piermont, NY to Catherine and James Mahoney.  She graduated from Ladycliff Academy.  She is survived by her loving husband Anthony, her son Mark (Kim), her daughter Patricia (and fiancé Ricky), her grandchildren Jeffrey, Kailtyn, Makenzie, Jake and James, her siblings Patricia Worthington (Bob), Mary Ellen Donovan (Tim), and James Mahoney (Jeanette).  She is also survived by many nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.  She spent over twenty years working for Hudson Valley Hospital Center where she forged strong friendships with many of her co-workers over the years. 

She was a true friend, and an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt.  Her sense of humor could light up a room.  She spent countless vacations with her husband and family in Cape May and Lake George.  She cherished Sunday dinners and holidays spent with family and friends.  For those who knew her well, she was fondly referred to as Ma and Big Bear.  She will forever be in our hearts.
