She is predeceased by her beloved husband Frederick Klofft and her siblings Helena Hartley, Edward Pruitt, Wanda “Wendy” Tarver and Irene “Sally” Sylvester.

She was born on March 19, 1934 in Waltham, MA to parents Peter and Victoria (Dudek) Petrovich. Patricia graduated from Waltham High School in 1952. She met her future husband “Fred” at the Wal-Ex Roller Rink in Waltham and the two were married in 1953. They lived for a brief period in Erie, PA before moving in Waltham, MA and then later in Marlborough, MA where they would raise their family. Patricia started working at Marlborough Hospital in the business office in 1976, then for many years in the payroll office, ending in 1996.

Pat and Fred enjoyed crafting together and for many years sold their wooden items at local vendors’ fairs. They were married for 59 years before Fred died in 2012.

Pat was a devoted mother and loved being a grandmother. She found great joy in her family and prayed for them daily. Her Catholic faith meant the world to her. Over the years she was a parishioner of the Immaculate Conception in Marlborough (where she was a choir member), St. Ann’s in Marlboro and St. Bernadette’s in Northborough. Prior to her recent illness, Pat resided at the Artisan in Hudson where she enjoyed attending mass with other residents and the occasional bingo game.

The family would like to thank the dedicated staff of Rose Monahan for their support and compassionate care at the end of her life.
