Patricia Ann Parsons Acello, 81, of St. James NY, passed away February 21, 2019 at her home in the loving care of her daughter, Christine and her home care companion, Veronica.  Pat was born to the late Leland and Beatrice Parsons, June 27, 1937 in Sharon Springs, New York.  Pat graduated from Sharon Springs Central School and received a bachelor’s degree in Teaching from the State University of New York at Oneonta.

Pat and Sal lived in St. James for over 40 years, raising their three children, and enjoyed the balance of their life together in the community they loved.  She will be remembered for her devotion to family life and community, and her strong faith. Pat is survived by her brother, Jeremy Parsons, of Sharon Springs NY, and her three loving children: Stephen J. Acello of Cumberland RI, JoAnn A. Cohen of Weston CT, and Christine M. Mandleur of Wading River, NY.  She is also survived by her six grandchildren, and one great-grand daughter.
