Patricia A. (Lane) Harvey

Patricia A. (Lane) Harvey passed away on November 13, 2017 in Bridgewater, MA after a brief illness. The third of six daughters born to John J. and Lillian M. (Forrest) Lane, “Pat” grew up in Randolph and graduated from Randolph High School in 1954. She married the love of her life, the late James F. Harvey in 1958 and moved to Brockton where they resided and raised their family for 33 years before moving to Easton. In her early years, she was employed by the electric company and the Randolph Medical Center and later went on to work for 22 years at the Paula Young Wig Company and retired with her husband to West Yarmouth, MA. She loved her home on the Cape, her Boston sports teams, and found great joy in the simple things in life such as listening to the ocean, spending summer mornings reading on her patio, tending to her garden and chatting with neighbors and friends. She was a religious education
teacher for over 20 years at Saint Margaret’s Church in Brockton, the Neighborhood Watch Block Captain in West Yarmouth and a devoted parishioner of St. Pius the Tenth Church. She will be fondly remembered for her great love for her family and friends, her generous heart, bright smile and quick wit.

She is survived by her children, James M. Harvey and his wife Susan of Northbridge, her daughter Maryellen Harvey of Bridgewater; her sisters Mary Hennessey of Brockton, Terry Steele of Brockton, Paula McCarthy and her husband Ed of Randolph, her brother-in- law Robert Swift of Wareham, sister-in-law Anne Chojnacki and her husband Walter of North Easton, and two special lifelong friends, Shirley Teed of Randolph and Mary Lou Parrish of Canton. She also leaves her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Justin Klar, his wife Christen and their daughters Hailey and Allison of Charlton, Andrew Klar, his wife Gislaine and their children Leticia and Josiah of Worcester, Savannah Harvey and her fiancé Alex Audet of Uxbridge and Kaitlyn Harvey of Northbridge, as well as 25 nieces and nephews and 46 grandnieces and nephews. Pat was predeceased by her sisters Barbara J. Morgan and Peggy Swift and her sisters and brother-in- law Mary Rose Garfagna, Catherine Harvey and Cornelius J. Harvey Jr.

Maryellen and Jim,

I am honored and blessed to have known your Mom and to call her my friend. She was truly a blessing in my life on a daily basis for almost two decades and continued to stay in touch even after we didn't work together anymore. She was always so thoughtful and kind to me. She greeted me with her warm smile on the morning of my interview at WBP and told me on my way out *She Would See Me Again*. And that she did for many, many, many years. I never called her Pat -she was always "Mrs. Harvey" and I was her "Miss Beth." Remembering her wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in my heart. My heart is sad but I know we all have another guardian angel now watching over us. May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you though the days ahead.

I'll never forget you "Mrs. Harvey!!!"

With deepest condolences and much love,
Miss Beth xo
