Patricia Elaine Bacon
Age 86, of Horseheads, died Sunday December 13th peacefully at her home. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of nearly 60 years, Francis Bacon. Patty grew up in Mansfield Pa. with her surviving brother, Bud Brown (Vera) of Fanwood, N.J. She graduated from Mansfield High School in 1953 and attended Mansfield State Teacher's College. Her family moved to Elmira, where she got a job at The Elmira Credit Bureau and met her future husband. She later worked at Rosenbaum's at the Arnot Mall in the children's department for decades. She is survived by her son, James Bacon (Ashley) of Horseheads and their three children, Lukas and Adrian Bacon, and Rain Smith, as well as her daughter, Susan Carberry (Joel) of Big Flats and their daughter Isabella. Patty's yearbook described her as "A little bit of dynamite behind those dark, sparkling eyes!" She was an impressive, avid card player and had many friends, young and old. All who knew Patty really enjoyed her sense of humor and fun and how easy it was to make her laugh! She was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, wonderful grandmother, and a friend to so many. A celebration of her life will be organized sometime in the new year; Patty will be laid to at Woodlawn National Cemetery, alongside her husband Frank, when COVID dissipates in all of our lives.
