Pat Saleeby

Pat Saleeby, age 86, passed peacefully of natural causes at her home in Raleigh on Thursday, October 31, 2013. She was surrounded by family, friends and caregivers. A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and the light of her husband's life, Pat was the only child of Timothy and Margaret McKenna of New York City.
Born in Queens, NY, Pat worked on Wall Street for Merrill Lynch early in her career, and she ultimately retired from GE Capital in Raleigh. Pat was the wife of Frederick John Saleeby for 63 years. Pat is survived by her five children and their families Fred Saleeby, Jr. and wife Marilyn, Karen Rice and husband Dan, Tim Saleeby, Bryn Townsend and husband Norris, and Reid Saleeby and wife Karen. Pat had six grandchildren and two great grandchildren whom she loved dearly.

Being an only child, Pat embraced and was loved by her extended family and in-laws. She is survived by her cousin Dorothy Donohue of Raleigh and Dorothy's daughters Diane and Gail, and sisters-in-law Claudette Petty and husband Jim, Shirley Willett and husband Michael, and brothers-in-law Mitchell Saleeby and Ralph Saleeby.

Pat enjoyed frequent trips to her second home in North Myrtle Beach, SC where she had many happy memories with Fred and their family. Pat had an infectious personality and stunning smile, and always saw the good in everyone she met. Her favorite pastimes were spoiling her grandchildren, shopping at yard sales for her children and Sunday family dinners. Pat was a devout Catholic and gave tirelessly of herself to friends and family.
