Patricia Ann McFaddin, 79, born on June 6th, 1942 passed away at her home in California, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, September 30, 2021. She was with her children and grandchildren who gathered around her in prayer and sang her to a peaceful rest. She suffered post-surgery complications which led to the discovery of pancreatic cancer which ultimately took her life.
Patty, as most called her, was first and foremost a mom and a grandma. She found her greatest passion and purpose in caring for her children and grandchildren. Having raised a houseful of 7 children, 2 stepchildren, and 17 grandchildren, she was the “cool mom” where all friends loved to gather. A typical Italian mom, many speak most fondly of their greatest memories being around her kitchen table as she dished up comforting meals and served nourishing advice and guidance. Patty always put others before herself - her greatest joy and pride was watching others’ successes.
She attended Monessen High School; started a family, and worked as a waitress and cook at various restaurants. In 1989, she earned her Certification as a Nursing Assistant and worked at the Mon-Valley Hospital where she still had fond memories.
Ultimately her creative mind and innate business acumen drove her to become an entrepreneur where she opened and operated two successful businesses with her late husband Robert McFaddin. The first we all fondly remember as Pat’s Deli and Restaurant where locals congregated for her daily specials and memorable stories that kept them coming back.
Between 1986 and 2021 she was owner and operator of Pat McFaddin Day Care Center until May 2021 when she retired. She and her staff helped guide many young minds from childhood to young adults. She was referred to as the “working mom’s day care provider” as she always went the extra mile to accommodate those she served and cared for.
She is survived by her children Troy (Cindy) Baldwin, Candy (Donnie) Tirpak, Georgette Baldwin, Bob (Kitty) McFaddin, Michele (Scott) Backo, Jill (Bill) Spencer, BJ (Gianna) McFaddin and Susan (Jeff) Kossar; her nieces Natalie (Jimmy) Griffith and Lani Duran; and grandchildren to include Blaine, Heather (Jim), Japheth (Amber), Blake, Andrew, Kaylee, Jenna, Robbie, Jordan, Bryce, Joel, Ecko, Taylor, Cecelia, Lillian, Sarah, Olivia and her longtime companion Bugsy. She was the daughter of the late John and Martha Galuppo Frow; and was predeceased by her husband, Robert McFaddin, her son, Shane Baldwin, and her siblings Glenda Tomayko and Daniel and Pete Frow.
Friends will be received on Sunday October 3rd from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm in the Robert A. Billick Funeral Home Inc., Grand Blvd. & Marion Avenue Monessen, Pennsylvania.
Funeral Services will be held on Monday October 4th at 10 am in Robert A. Billick Funeral Home Inc. with Rev. Matthew Stabe, officiating. Interment will follow in Mon Valley Memorial Park.

To the family, NuNu and family are praying for all of you. We had many wonderful times with Patty and Mack telling stories and reminiscing about old times. I thought I would have had more time with Patty talking about kids in childcare and just having a laugh. Patty will be missed by NuNu and her family. May she rest in peace.
