Patricia Ellen (Mahony) Lacourse, 72, of Manchester, NH, passed away on October 2, 2023 with her daughter by her side. Born in Ayer, MA on February 4, 1951, she was a daughter of the late Thomas F. and Cecilia “Dot” (O’Leary) Mahony.
Patricia was raised in Pepperell, MA. After high school, she moved to California where she lived for nearly twenty years and she started her family during this time. She made many fond memories riding in her convertible with her cat, Delilah, on her shoulder. She later moved to New Hampshire, where she raised her five children on her own. Maternal instincts came naturally to Patricia and she was known as the “Neighborhood Mom”. Additionally, she was the devoted caretaker to Derek for a majority of his life. In her spare time, Patricia enjoyed creating decorative arrangements with artificial flowers.
