Patricia Mary Connolly Daughter of the late Eugene and Mary (Travers) Connolly from Brooklyn, New York, born on February 17, 1932 passed away peacefully on February 16, 2021, one day shy of her 89th birthday. Pat is survived by her loving sister Mary Connolly, and the entire Haggerty Family, who are her family in all ways but blood: Margaret and the late John J. Haggerty, John H. and Lisa Haggerty, Tom and Lori Haggerty and their sons Jack and Matthew Haggerty. Pat attended grade school at St. Theresa’s in Brooklyn and then went on to St. Joseph Commercial High School. From there Pat worked for the FBI in their New York office. In the early 50’s Pat entered into Religious Life as a Trinitarian and received her Masters in Social Work. As part of her missionary work with the Trinitarians, Pat served the Catholic Church in Puerto Rico, Philadelphia and the South Bronx where she worked on the Head Start Program at St. Rita’s. In the early 60’s Pat left the community and went to work for the Protestant Federation of Welfare Agencies in New York. After many years of social work Pat entered the corporate world in downtown Manhattan where she worked for Touche Ross & Co. as part of the Financial Services Group at One World Trade Center. In the early 90’s Pat retired and continued doing what she loved most – traveling. Both she and her sister Mary, and most times their ‘3rd sister’ Margie, traveled to many countries including their ‘homeland’ of Scotland. The 3 ladies also visited much of the United States visiting almost all of the National Parks. After many years of living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Pat and Mary recently relocated to New Jersey to BrightView Senior Living in Paramus to be closer to the Haggerty Family. Pat will be missed by her sister and all the Haggertys as well as all of her dear friends that she has met throughout her life. In lieu of flowers Pat would love to have donations made to The World Wildlife Federation https://www.worldwildlife.org/ or The Little Sisters of the Assumption in the South Bronx, NY https://www.littlesisters.org/support.php
