Edna Patricia "Pat" MongE. Patricia "Pat" Mong, 80 of Rimersburg, PA, passed away Sunday, July 30, 2023, at Clarview Nursing Home, in Sligo.
She was born on September 4, 1942, in Sligo, PA, to Frederick and Edna (Smith) McKinney.
Pat was a 1960 graduate of Union High School and a member of the Baker Street Church of God where she enjoyed many years helping with Children's ministries and numerous other church activities.
Pat was a full-time homemaker with a devotion to serving her family's every need. Her children will lovingly remember her constant attention to providing a wonderful childhood experience for them. The Mong household was the meeting place for the neighborhood children as Pat provided lunches and popsicles on demand. At any moment Pat's yard would turn into a whiffle ball game or a competitive match of croquet. She was also a hostess at many impromptu sleepovers. She continued her legacy by spending many precious hours playing games and caring for her grandchildren.
Her memory will be cherished by her two sons, Jeffrey P. Mong and wife, Lisa of Hershey and David Mong and wife, Kelly of Russell; a daughter, Debbie Shirey and husband, Jeff of Rimersburg; six grandchildren, Adam Mong, Marcus Mong and wife, Faith, Mackenzie Yako, Derek Shirey and wife, Kaitlin, Dylan Shirey and girlfriend, Amanda Trunzo, and Miranda Mong; five great-grandchildren, Henley Mong, Avery Mong, Chloe Mong, Tristan Yako and Juliana Yako; brothers, David McKinney and wife, Michelle of Parker and Dennis McKinney and wife, Betty Jo of Sligo; and sisters, Janet Smith and husband, Darrell of Clarion and Sandra Rodgers of Cranberry Township.
Pat had a wonderful team of caregivers at Clarview during her last few months and the family will be forever grateful for the love and care they provided, especially her great nieces Malinda and Sabrina. Prior to moving to Clarview she had two special individuals that helped her while at home; Belinda Runyan and Deanna Carmichael.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents and her loving husband of 6o years, Thomas R. Mong whom she married on December 7, 1962, and who died on November 30, 2022.
