Patricia A. Guerrieri 1938-2020

POLAND — Private services were held for Patricia A. Guerrieri, 82, who peacefully passed away at home, Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020, surrounded by her family.

Patti Ann was born Nov. 21, 1938, the daughter of the late Frank and Margaret Zangara. She was a graduate of East High School and eventually made a home for herself and her three children in Poland, where she taught them to appreciate the small joys that life brings.

After retiring from Handleman’s Co., Patti Ann spent many years in Florida walking the beach, collecting shells and inviting family and friends to visit whether for a day, a week or longer.

Aside from being an excellent cook and talented artist, she enjoyed listening to opera and classical music, and watching her beloved New York Yankees, but her biggest joy of all was time spent with family and her closest friends.

Besides her parents, Patti Ann was preceded in death by her siblings, Robert Zangara, Don Zangara, Rose DePaul, and her twin, Francis Fitchet; and her nephew, James “Jimmy” DePaul.

Patti Ann will be missed by her children, Denise (John) Probst of Boardman, Richard Guerrieri of Fort Myers, Fla. and Richelle Guerrieri of Poland; her grandchildren, John Probst IV and Jessica Probst; her great-grandchildren, Tre and Tanner; and many nieces and nephews.

Contributions in Patti Ann’s memory may be made to Hospice of the Valley, 5190 Market St. Youngstown, OH 44512.

Arrangements were handled by the Shriver-Allison-Courtley-Weller-King Funeral Home. Friends and family may view this obituary and share memories and their condolences at www.shriverallisoncourtley funeralhome.com.
