Patricia (Baglivo) Fairclough, age 75, a longtime Taylor resident, passed away Monday morning at home, after an illness. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband of 55 years, Robert Fairclough, Sr. The couple were married on November 26, 1966.
Born on November 12, 1946, and daughter of the late Peter and Anna (Nappi) Baglivo, Patricia was raised in West Scranton. A 1964 graduate of West Scranton High School, upon raising her family she also worked as a teller for the former West Side Bank. She worked for several other banks before serving as secretary at various local medical offices prior to her retirement.
Her craving for knowledge was admirable as she continued to take educational courses even into her retirement. The quintessential Italian cook and baker, her perfected recipes will never be forgotten, especially “Nanny’s meatballs.” She also specialized in house work, as no one kept a more immaculate home than she did.
Throughout her life, Patricia possessed an unwavering faith in her beliefs. She was a member of the Hillside Haven Community Church.
Loved dearly by her family and friends, she’ll be forever missed.
She is also survived by loving family, including her children, Robert Fairclough, Jr. and wife Karen of Taylor, David Fairclough and wife Jennifer of Scranton and Paula Kearney and husband Martin of Camp Hill; adored grandchildren, Maryann, Christopher, Daniele, Abby, Chelsea, Breanna, David and Jemma, and great grandchildren, Layla and Koen; a sister, Josephine Taramelli of Jessup; and many nieces and nephews.
Siblings, Vincent and Richard Baglivo, Mary Ann Krupa and Jane Shoener, also preceded her in death.
Her family would like to express their gratitude to the staffs of both Traditional Home Hospice and Regional Hospital as well as Drs. Kishori Veerabhadrappa, John Prior, Samir Pancholy, Joseph Leo and Jack Henzes for their collective kindness and compassion throughout Patricia’s illness.
A celebration of Patricia’s life is scheduled for Monday at 5:30 PM at the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Stephen Merkh. Family and friends may pay their respects on Monday from 3:00 PM until services.
