After blessing everyone she met with her kindness and compassion for 78 years Patricia L Boehm was called home by our Lord and Savior. In the early hours on June 10th, 2022, he decided that she had fought enough, and it was time to peacefully pass into heaven. She was surrounded with family and friends while she fought during her final days here on Earth. She was showered with stories, laughter, tears, and I love you’s, and we know she enjoyed every minute.
Pat was born on 10/16/43 to John and Frances Cobb. She was joined by brothers Ron and Jim Cobb. She graduated from Montour High School class of 1961. She was later married to Edwin Boehm on April 7th, 1972. The marriage brought Edwin and his 5 children (Ebby, Judy, Robert, Susan and Christopher) together with Pat and her 2 daughters (Debbie and Tracey), uniting two families into one. They then had 1 child together in 1973 (Paul), as if 7 weren't enough to handle. Pat and Ed raised their family in the South Hills of Pittsburgh in Scott Twp. In 1989, they decided to move to Palm Harbor,FL just miles from their daughter Debbie and to sons Paul, Ebby, Robert and Christopher. After several years in Florida a decision was made to return to Pittsburgh to give Pat's mom the care she needed. They have lived in the Pittsburgh area ever since.
During Pat's working years she was a Respiratory Therapist at both Ohio Valley and Presbyterian Hospitals where she enjoyed working closely with her mom at Ohio Valley and her daughter Tracey at Presbyterian. If you have been following the story, Pat was born to love and care for others and spent her entire life doing just that.
Pat had two wonderful sisters in law Cynthia and Patty, three sons in laws Dan, Ralph and Pat, two daughters in laws Sabrina and Kerry, and Chris's partner Holly. She loved each and every one of them as her own. She was also blessed with 14 grandchildren and many great grandchildren that she loved with all her heart. Her grandchildren were Ebby Sam, Skylar, Adam, Jennifer, Amy, Melissa, Kerrie, Deric, CJ, Sydni, Baylee, Ashley, Gunnar and Madden. She was so proud of the young adults that all of them have become.
During life Pat enjoyed nothing more than to be sitting on the beach in Clearwater, FL. Thru sheer determination, Pat was able to recently celebrate her and Ed's 50th wedding anniversary at just that very place. Enjoying a sunset dinner at Clearwater Beach was a goal of hers during her fight and she made it happen in April.
Some other activities that she enjoyed were attending kids and grandkids activities, traveling with her husband, shopping with her beloved granddaughters, going to dinner with friends, playing cards with friends (no money involved of course), and did I mention the beach?
Pat will be dearly missed by everyone she touched with her kindness and compassion here on Earth, but she is now enjoying the most beautiful beach, endless sunshine, and the clearest water she's ever seen. A glorious reunion with all previously departed friends and family.
Well mom, "I can only imagine" became a beautiful and glorious reality just as you imagined it would be. Give Gram and Pap hugs from all of us and save us a seat on that white sand beach in heaven. We love you!
A memorial service will be held at a later date and announced at that time. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations in Pat's name to either the Good Samaritan House in Wexford, Pa or Honeymoon Island State Park, FL at www.friendsoftheislandparks.org.
