Patricia Ann Samascott
ROCK CITY FALLS - Patricia Ann Samascott, age 77, silently closed the door of life and departed from us on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at her home with her loving husband John by her side following a long courageous battle with cancer.
She was born on August 20, 1940 in Albany, NY, the daughter of the late George Stevens and Mary Ann Houck Stevens.
Patricia was a faithful and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. She spent a good part of her life involved in the antique business, Pat was a serious cartridge collector. She enjoyed hunting, fishing, reading and traveling with her husband John. Pat loved the Lord, she was very active in the church, but her faith extended beyond ministering with her church family; she was very passionate and active in her community service. Pat is now rejoicing with her Savior, fulfilling as the hymn writer penned, “Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice!”
Patricia is survived by her beloved husband of 58 years, John L. Samascott; daughters, Catherine Ippoliti, Frances “Sam” Samascott, Ellen Montross, Mary Samascott; son, Joseph Samascott; nine grand-children, five great-grandchildren and many friends who will miss her dearly.
