The Angels came and took Patricia A. Brantis (Jones) away on Friday May 15, 2020 at home surrounded by her loving family after a 6 month battle with cancer and other multiple health issues. She was born on March 18, 1943 in Canastota and graduated from Canastota High School. Patricia married the love of her life, Bill (Floyd) W. Brantis on August 18, 1962.
Patricia enjoyed her craft business- Wooden Treasures & Gifts, along with traveling to all the shows with her husband. She also enjoyed her flower gardens, bingo, crossword puzzles and playing the lotto. Her greatest enjoyment in her life was her family. She was a compassionate, loving spirit whose greatest joy in life was spending time with and caring for her children, grandchildren & great grandchildren. She had a special love and dedication in her heart for her granddaughter Kristie. Her beautiful smiles, laughter and pleasures she’d impart far outweighed her special needs and always melted her heart. She also had a very special love and unbreakable bond with her great granddaughter Mercedes.
