Patricia Lynn Simas, 54 also known as Pat, Patty, Brother Pat and Peanut, of Meadville, passed away on December 26, 2017 at UPMC-Hamot in Erie of metastatic breast cancer.
She was born August 11, 1963 in St. Petersburg, FL the daughter of Donald VanDine and Delores VanDine. She married Joseph G. Simas and celebrated 17 years of marriage prior to his death.
Patty enjoyed being around her family, her loved ones....family was everything to her along with spending all the times she could with her grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, raising animals, her dogs, playing her games on the computer and just relaxing watching the news. Patty got the nick name Brother Pat because she wasn't afraid to go help the guys out if something heavy needed moved...everyone called her! Her last years of working before becoming fully disabled were at Valenti's and Cracker Barrel, both in Meadville. Watching her kids grow up and becoming adults and her grandchildren growing up is what meant the most to her.
Patty is survived by her brother, Donald VanDine of FL, four sisters; Linda Wyant of TN, Delores Wyant of TN, Geraldine L. "Star" VanDine, Jackie Estes and her husband Tyrone of Saegertown, her boyfriend Brad Almy, her children: Delores Smith and her husband Joshua (Scooby) of Meadville, Joseph J. Simas of Meadville, and Tricia Weed of Corry, her grandchildren: Camara McGuigain, Autumn Weed, Shawn Varner, Patrick Varner, Joseph A. Simas, and Hayden Simas.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Delores VanDine, her husband: Joseph G. Simas, and a sister: Donna Krier.
The family would like to keep her funeral services private, but a memorial service will be posted via Facebook at a later date.
A special THANK YOU to all that have showed support and have been here with the family in her last days. GOD BLESS YOU!
