Patricia Cleasby, 57, of Kingston passed away September 7, 2020, following a lengthy illness. She was a 1981 graduate of Dallas High School and was the daughter of the late Nell Elaine (Shotwell) and Thomas Cleasby.
Patty was born in Wilkes-Barre and spent most of her adult life living in Washington D.C., and other large cities including Sacramento, Chicago and New York, where she worked in Sales and Marketing. She was employed for many years at the National Defense Industry Association (NDIA) in D.C., where she had the privilege to work with some of our nation’s retired military leaders. Through her work she traveled all over the U.S. and to several European countries.
She loved to paint, read and listen to pod-casts about science, history and world affairs. She was a fierce defender of equal rights and cared deeply about those less fortunate than herself, even in her most difficult days. She was witty and funny, and adored by her young great-niece and great-nephews.
We would like to thank her many care givers from Residential Home Health and Hospice in Wilkes-Barre for their compassionate care.
She is survived by her two sisters, Beth Shubilla (Tom), Kingston and Cheri McCue (Paul), Dallas; nieces Andrea Munster (Paul), Kingston, Rachael Hayes (Jason), Dallas; and nephew, Paul McCue (Jill), Dallas; along with five great-nephews and one great-niece; and a large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.
Arrangements are being handled by Richard H. Disque Funeral Home in Dallas. Private services will be held to honor her memory. On line condolences can be made to Disquefuneralhome.com
