Patsy's Obituary

Patsy L. Siriano, 90, of St. Joseph, formerly of Riverside, passed away on Monday, May 15, 2023, at Caretel Inn.

Patsy was born on June 16, 1932, in Braggadocio, MO, to Edward & Lois (Allen) Hatley. She was raised by Lois and her step-father Pete Sears after Edward (Justice of the Peace) passed away when she was 7 yrs old. Pasty grew up in Missouri. She helped her family by picking cotton and singing on the radio on the weekends with her sister. In the summer time, her family would travel to Michigan to fish on Lake Michigan. When Patsy was 14, it was decided that she would move to Michigan and attended to school at Benton Harbor High School. This is where she met the love of her life Anthony Siriano. They married on February 9, 1952, in Benton Harbor.

Patsy worked for Whirlpool Corp., as well for local attorneys as a legal secretary, and also worked as a waitress at the Siriano family’s Greenland Inn. She was a devoted mother and participated in her children’s school and their activities. Patsy was a Girl Scout leader and started the very first library and basketball team at Riverside Hagar #6 School. In her spare time she loved to travel on the drop of a dime, take the family to the local beaches, and enjoyed reading, sewing and cooking. The most important time spent was with her family, and even up until 90 yrs old she kept in touch with family & friends on Facebook. In her last few years she absolutely loved the people at Caretel Inn and all that their nursing staff did for her.

Patsy is survived by her children, Lynda Siriano-Martinez (husband Alvaro) of Benton Harbor, Christopher Siriano (& fiancé Elizabeth Holowasko) of Eau Claire and Sam A. Siriano of Eau Claire; grandchildren, Ali (Cody) Warren, Emily Siriano, Luke (Megan) Siriano and Seth Siriano; and great-grandchildren, Colton & Isabelle Warren and Ryson & Jace Siriano, and many cousins in the Allen, Glass & Champion Families.

Patsy was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Anthony Siriano and sister Ginger Spina.
