Obituary For Isabella Patricia Mendonca

A petite but none the less formidable Patricia “Patsy” (Stankiewicz) Mendonca, 94, of Peabody, died peacefully on Monday, September 19, 2022 at the Kaplan Family Hospice House, Danvers with her family by her side. She was the wife of the late Peabody Fire Captain, Manuel E. Mendonca.

Patricia was born and raised in Salem, the daughter of the late John J. and Alice (Sadowski) Stankiewicz and graduated from Salem High School in the class of 1945.

She was first employed as a telephone operator with the New England Tel. and Tel. Company. In 1964 she began a career in the Peabody Schools as cafeteria helper, rising to the position of assistant supervisor of hot lunch school program with the City of Peabody, until her retirement in 1983.

She volunteered for many years for the Good Friday Walk for Hunger in Beverly. Among her many talents were sewing, gardening, cooking and decorated cake making. She loved the water and swimming, and was proficient at back road car adventures. She was a loving mother, sister, Aunt and friend who will be missed by all who knew her.

She is s survived by her two daughters, Pamela Mendonca-Styles (Jack) and Crystal M Hall (Richard), a brother, Paul R. Stankiewicz (Judy), a kind hearted brother-in-law, Herbert Osgood and many nieces and nephews. She was the sister of the late Ralph D. Stankiewicz and Karen Osgood.

A celebration of her life service will be held in the spring. Expressions of sympathy may be made to Kaplan Hospice House, 78 Liberty Street, Danvers MA in her memory. Assisting the family is the Conway, Cahill-Brodeur Funeral home of Peabody. For register book and obituary, please visit www.ccbfuneral.com

    Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of Mrs. Mendonca. I was fortunate to know both of them, Manny first when my business was located in Salem. He was kind and industrious and I always looked forward to the time he spent at the shop. I met Mrs. Mendonca when I purchased their home on Raymond Ave in Salem. She and Manny seemed like a perfect couple and I could see how her encouragement and care was the driving force of their lives together and complemented each other. May they both Rest In Peace.
