Patricia Ann Dropiewski

Patricia (Pat)Ann Dropiewski, age 89 of Plymouth passed away on March 4, 2024.

Patricia was born on December 16, 1934 in Akron, Ohio to her parents, the late Margaret (née Moss) and Charles Hughes.  She is the beloved and devoted wife of Kenneth Dropiewski; loving mother of three children – Rosina DeGiulio, Margo Murphy, Teresa Fletcher and step-mother of Cindy (Nick) Butkevich, Kenneth (Deanna) Dropiewski and Tracy (Doug) Wheeler; proud grandmother of Aimee Noelke, Kip Fletcher, Adam Fletcher, Patricia (Joseph) Deboe, Robert Murphy, Elizabeth George, Joseph (Kiara) Murphy, Nicholas Butkevich, Josh Butkevich, Lauren Butkevich, Carmella Wheeler, Nicole Wheeler and Kenna Dropiewski; great-grandmother of Sarah, Kaleb, Hannah, Abigail, Elizabeth, Rachel, Joseph and Gonzague Louis; and many nieces and nephews.

She is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by her siblings, Jacqueline (Michael) McCormick, Prudence Dreyer, Debra (Brad) Belden and Maureen (Loren) Driscoll.

Patricia loved God and the Catholic Church.  She taught first grade at St. Alfred’s Parish in Taylor and at St. Mary’s of Wayne.  She always liked teaching first grade.

She was a wonderful cook and loved entertaining, especially at Christmastime. 

She loved everything to be beautiful and always wanted everything “to be nice” as she used to say. Her home was always beautifully decorated and her gardens were magnificent.

She loved her family, babies, little children, her friends, and desserts (especially chocolate). 

Patricia was a fashionista before it was even popular. She enjoyed shopping for clothing and coordinated each outfit to the smallest detail.  

Patricia was loved by family and friends who are all grateful to have had her in their life.
