Patricia Eleanor McAndrew (Kumisca) passed away on Wednesday, March 15th at the age of 80 surrounded by her family. She was the cherished daughter of the late Mary T. Kumisca and the loving and devoted mother to three children. James (her favorite) and his wife Christine McAndrew of Hanson, MA, Kristine (her favorite) and her husband Bill Flora of Raleigh, NC and Kathleen (her favorite) and her husband Mark Doherty of Fairfield, CT. She was the best Nana to her grandchildren, Anthony, Jessica, Matthew, Sean, Allie, William, Eleanor, and Evelyn. She will be missed by countless cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends, of which she had many.
Patricia spent her time growing up in Braintree and formed many lifelong friendships even after moving and settling in Hanover with her family. She loved being part of the Braintree Women’s Group, Red Hat Society, and her bowling league. Pat loved playing cribbage, games, reading, (the library’s best customer!), family trips to the beach, dinners out and most of all spending time with her grandchildren. Her favorite saying was “the more the merrier”. Pat would make friends with everyone she came in contact with. She was immediately your friend, your sister, your mother, or the grandmother you never had. She loved life to the fullest and never said no to an adventure.
After living with her son and his family for 13 years, she eventually made her way South to Raleigh, NC to be closer to her daughter Kristine and family. She loved the weather in Raleigh and getting to see her youngest grandchildren grow up.
