Patricia Joan (Verrill) Pedersen, 86, of Litchfield, died peacefully at home on October 15, 2022, of a prolonged illness.
Patty was a remarkable woman who, during her working years, did almost everything from driving a school bus to being an executive secretary. Her favorite role was that of wife and mother. She strived to be perfect at both and came as close as humanly possible. She was twice president of the Litchfield Lions, a Red Hatter, an avid quilter, and a collector of dolls, hats, and stuffed animals. She single-handedly organized a drive to send hundreds of Christmas cards from school children to troops in Iraq after Desert Storm.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Kenneth; her children, Wayne of Hanover, MA, Keith of Reading, MA and Deborah of Raymond, NH; grandchildren, William and Kelly Pedersen of London, NH, Alan Pedersen of Princeton, MA and Cheryl Eisenberg of Roslindale, MA; great granddaughter Sam Eisenberg; siblings, Phillip Verrill of Manchester, NH, Dorothy Wood of Hermon, ME, Bruce Verrill of Exeter, ME and Kathleen Demarest of Veazie, ME; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
This doesn’t seem enough to portray the person she was and the life she lived. May God bless.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
