PPatricia (McGee) Langan, of Clarks Summit and a longtime resident of the Hyde Park section of West Scranton, gained her wings after peacefully passing away on Tuesday morning with her loving family by her side following a short and unfortunate battle with cancer. She was 78 years young. On July 27, 1995, she was prematurely preceded in death by her beloved husband of 32 years and the one and only love of her life, Paul Langan.
Daughter of the late John T. and Margaret “Peg” (McCarthy) McGee, Patricia raised her family of five adoring children before working for over 30 years for the Scranton School District, prior to her retirement.
She was a wonderful mother, nana, sister-in-law, aunt and friend to countless. Her thoughtfulness and sincerity shined bright, while often expressing her love and making others feel better with a card.
She absolutely loved life, always living each day to its fullest. What made her happiest was spending time with her loved ones. She was never one to pass up a good party and she was much devoted to her family, never missing one of their events. From games and recitals to birthday parties, no celebration was too small. She was certainly the biggest fan of each and every member of her family.
Patricia had many wonderful friends who together shared so many wonderful memories. From the card club, book club, Mah Jong, the golf girls, dinner clubs, senior week girls, Stone Harbor vacations and many more, she so enjoyed the love and laughter shared with her friends whom she long considered her extended family. She considered the aforementioned friendships a true gift.
Patricia not only knew the true meaning of life but she lived it by showing her love and attention to those around her. She was her family’s cheerleader, matriarch and queen. She defined strength, compassion and those who knew her could only hope to live with her positive attitude and loving spirit.
To know her was to love her. Her smile was infectious and her personality was engaging. Her warm heart, kind nature and loving spirit are all part of her legacy that she leaves behind with her family of whom she was so proud. She’ll be forever missed.
Of Roman Catholic faith, for over five decades she was a loyal member of the St. Patrick’s Parish in West Scranton.
She is survived by her loving family: including her five children, P.J. Langan and husband, Michael Falsetti, of South Abington Twp.; Christopher Langan and fiancé, Robyn Gordon, of Clarks Summit; Brian Langan and wife, Kelly, of Scranton; Timothy Langan and wife, Kelly, of Scranton; and Maggie Davis and husband, Chris, of Clarks Green; 10 grandchildren whom adored their “nana,” Brian Langan and wife, Bella; Ashley Firestone and husband, Travis; Timmy Langan and companion, Karen; Matthew Langan and wife, Marissa; Kelcey Castaldi and husband, Marty; Mary Kate Langan and partner, Patrick; Christopher Langan and partner, Casey; Morgan Langan and partner, Matt; Paulie Davis and Patrick Davis; and six great-grandchildren with a great-grandson on his way, Andrea, Malina, Shae, Charlotte, Avery and Concetta; brothers-in-law, Michael, Gerald Langan and Thomas Brennan; sisters-in-law, Evelyn, Frances and Maryann; and many nieces, nephews and dear friends. Also preceding her in death was a brother, William J. McGee; a brother-in-law, Eugene Langan II; and a sister-in-law, Mary Ann Brennan.
Patricia’s family will be forever grateful for the endless love and support of family, loyal friends and devoted caregivers. Her family is especially thankful to Patricia’s daughter-in-law, Kelly F. Langan and her Allied Services Hospice team, along with her everyday caregivers, especially Elaine and Marie, whose collective efforts gave Patricia loving care and comfort while providing for a beautifully peaceful passing.
