Patsy grew up in the small town of Millinocket, Maine where she attended Stearns High School, the graduating Class of 1954. She graduated with honors as a member of the National Honor Society, she was in many activities to include Glee Club, Christmas Pageants, Basketball Usher, and on the Bowling Team. She worked at the corner Drug Store all through high school and after graduating she worked in the medical office of Dr. Desjardin. Patsy was a Christian girl, raised and baptized in the Congregational Church, Millinocket, Maine.
In June of 1955, Patsy married her sweetheart and the love of her life Terrance (Terry) Healey, this past June they were privileged to celebrate 64 years of marriage together. They built a beautiful family and life together, traveling the world while Terry served in the United States Air Force. Patsy stayed home to raise their children. She taught cake decorating, volunteered for the Red Cross at military medical facilities and after Terry retired from the Air Force, they moved back to their favorite place in the world, the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. Patsy waited until her children were grown to join the work force, a trained medical assistant, she taught courses for the Med-Assist School of Hawaii. She became the Site Manager and Contracts Specialist for Shinco Corporation, a janitorial service company, she ran the government cleaning contracts on all of Pearl Harbor Naval Air Station for many years until her retirement. They enjoyed making friends and living life to the fullest on their special trips to the island of Maui.
Patsy was a great cook and loved to bake – her cookies, pies and decorated cakes were exceptional, especially her doll cakes, if you ever received one you know just how much love went into each and every one. She loved going to the beach, she loved a good crossword puzzle, her favorite holiday was Christmas, her favorite color was purple and she loved anything that sparkled. There was nothing Patsy was more passionate or prouder of than her family, for all those that knew her, she will be remembered for her joy of life, caring and giving nature, her hearty laugh and the pride of being Scottish.
It is impossible to do her justice in writing about her life. She is the wife all women should aspire to be, the mother and grandmother that loved greatly without hesitation or judgment. She was the most caring and genuine friend a person could ever have. She will be missed by all who loved her and knew her. She will be looking down from Heaven watching and still loving us as she did while living.
