March 7, 1936 - March 25, 2021
PORTLAND - Patricia “Pat” Ann (Towle) Fahey, 85, passed away on March 25, 2021 with her loving children by her side. Pat was born on March 7, 1936 the daughter of Thomas and Iva (Bryant) Towle. As a child Pat was raised in a loving home on Walton Street surrounded and supported by her close-knit Irish family that included three older brothers, Leo, Thomas, and Daniel Towle. Pat attended St. Joseph Grammar School and graduated from Cathedral High School in 1954 where she made lifelong friendships that were strengthened by the class reunions that she attended for decades. Pat married Richard Fahey in 1955 and together they raised three children, Susan, Richard, Jr., and Nancy in the Woodford’s neighborhood in Portland. As “empty nesters” Pat and Dick lived in Cape Elizabeth, summered on Little Sebago, wintered in Bradenton, FL; finally residing at their in-law-apartment in Westbrook with their daughter, Nancy. As a mother Pat held closely to her Irish Catholic upbringing and through her strong belief in God instilled in her children love, commitment, faith and hard work. In addition to raising her own children Pat also had a varied career included working at Hood Ice Cream, and serving as a CNA. Although her remaining years were a struggle physically, Pat never lost her appetite for life. She remained close to several friends and loved a spirited game of Bridge with “the girls”. Most importantly Pat loved her family. She was continually engaged in and passionate for the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She adored each one and looked forward with great anticipation to family gatherings, visits and phone calls from each. Family gatherings were her favorite, filled with love, food, fun, games, music and laughter. When unable to visit, Pat surrounded herself with a gallery of photos, old and new to ensure her family always remained close. Nana will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her grandchildren as kind, funny, loving, a baker of goodies and a fierce cribbage opponent. Pat is survived by her husband of 66 years; her children, Susan Fournier and husband, Gary, Richard Fahey, Jr. and wife, Helena, and Nancy Good and husband, David; grandchildren, Matthew Muse, Benjamin Fournier, Amanda Good, Adam Fahey, Alexandra French, and Zachary Good; great-grandchildren, Brehnan, Virginia, James, Wyatt, Alivia, and Breccan; as well as many nieces and nephews. The family would like to a give special thank you to Kathy MacKeogh and the staff on 3 North at the Baron Center whose amazing love, care and attention allowed Pat to live her last days with compassion and dignity.
