Patricia M. Filipkowski
November 7, 2018
Patricia M. Filipkowski, 69, of Nanticoke, formerly of the Greenwood section of Moosic, entered eternal rest Wednesday at St. Luke’s Villa, Wilkes-barre. Her fiancé, David B. Harvey, who was the love of her life and caregiver, was by her side.
Born in Moosic, she was the daughter of the late John and Andrea Banfi Filipkowski. In 1967, she graduated from South Catholic High School. She furthered her education at East Stroudsburg University, where she received her bachelor’s in education. Before her retirement, she worked for the Pennsylvania Department of Welfare as a clerk for 28 years. Patricia was a faithful Catholic and a lifelong member of the former St. Mary of Czestochowa Church, Moosic, where she was the chairwoman of the activities stand. Following the consolidation of her church, she became a member of Divine Mercy Parish.
A woman of many enjoyments, Patricia especially enjoyed flower gardening, listening to polka music, cycling and traveling extensively with her mother. Above all, her favorite enjoyment was being surrounded by her loving family.
In addition to her fiancé, she is survived by two brothers, John Filipkowski; and Michael Filipkowski and wife, Maryjean; a nephew, Michael Filipkowski and wife, Danielle; two nieces, Jenna Filipkowski and husband, Jason Mott; and Christa Filipkowski and companion, Derek Desanto; her fiancé’s family, Shannon and Harvey Fung, and their son, Isaiah; David Harvey and Helen Lagos Harvey.
She was also preceded in death by an infant sister, Andrea; and a sister-in-law, Linda Filipkowski.
