Obituary for Patricia Anndrews Rooney

Patricia Anndrews Rooney, 75, of Hyde Park, previously of Ossining, New York, Boca Raton, Florida, and Southbury, Connecticut passed away on Saturday, August 18, 2018 peacefully with her family at her side.

Born on September 9, 1942, she was the daughter of the late Jack and Althea Hill Glenn. She grew up in Irvington, NY where she attended St. Barnabus Episcopal Church and graduated from Irvington High School.

On November 16, 1963 at Our Lady of The Rosary Church in Yonkers, she married Michael Rooney, Sr. and moved to Ossining. Her husband predeceased her in 2001.

Though her vocation was as an Administrative Assistant; her true enjoyment came from serving others. Pat volunteered in numerous ways including serving and feeding the hungry at various food pantries, assisting as a driver for Meals-on-Wheels, volunteering at local hospitals, and as a member of her church’s altar guild. She also chaired Toys for Tots, Fill-the-School-Backpack Drive, and helped at the Red Cross Blood Drive.

Pat eventually relocated to Hyde Park to be closer to her family, whom she treasured and adored. Her life was filled with time spent with her children and grandchildren, building memories. In Hyde Park, she became a member of St. James’ Episcopal Church.

Those who knew Pat appreciated her thankful heart, how she appreciated things in life both big and small. Her positive disposition was contagious, and she shared that spirit with everyone around her. She was forgiving, never keeping a record of wrongs, helpful, always pitching in wherever and in any capacity. Humility was also a part of Pat’s character, she always turned conversations toward others in an effort to strengthen and build them up.

She is survived by her three children, Deborah Velardo, and husband, Steven, of Hyde Park, Michael Rooney, Jr., and wife, Maura, of Hopewell Junction, and Derek Rooney and wife Jen, of Putnam Valley; nine grandchildren, Steven Velardo, Jr., Matthew Velardo, Sarah Velardo, Christopher Velardo, Daniel Velardo, Jessica Rooney, Michael Rooney, III, Jillian Rooney, and Devon Rooney; and many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place.

Funeral services will be held at 11 am, Saturday, August 25, 2018 at St. James' Episcopal Church, 4526 Albany Post Rd., Hyde Park. The church will be open at 10:30 for additional prayer and family greeting.

Inurnment in the church’s meditation garden will follow.

The Rooney family respectfully requests memorial donations to Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation, 347 Violet Ave, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601,
