Patricia June Chrobak
Patricia June Chrobak, 87, loving wife and mother of four children, passed away Sunday morning (Feb. 23, 2020) in O'Brien Memorial Health Care Center, Masury.
Mrs. Chrobak was born on June 12, 1932, in Erie, a daughter of Richard John and Beatrice Sylvia (Alford) Breck.
She graduated in 1950 from Strong Vincent High School in Erie.
After high school, she was employed at Eriez Magnetics. She was part of a story that appeared in the 1953 edition of "The Saturday Evening Post" for the first Alnico electric magnet.
A homemaker, she was a member of the Church of Norte Dame, Hermitage.
Her husband, Alexander Francis Chrobak, whom she married Oct. 16, 1953, passed away Oct. 4, 2011.
Pat had a passion for playing cards. She also liked gardening - weeding not so much - bird watching, and visiting with family and friends. She enjoyed watching movies and was an avid music lover and especially enjoyed listening to Nat King Cole.
Pat was known for her subtle yet quick wit, humor, and her pride and love of family.
She is survived by: two daughters, Carolyn Chrobak of Hermitage and Kimberly Parker and her husband, Jeff, of Pittsburgh; two sons, Richard Chrobak, of Hermitage and Jeffrey Chrobak and his wife, Laurie, of Hubbard; a sister, Margaret Spaeder and her husband, Mark, of Erie; and four grandchildren, Patricia and Kathleen Downey, and Joshua and Elizabeth Chrobak.
In addition to her husband and parents, Pat was preceded in death by a niece, Christine "Chris" Chrobak Anderson.
