Patricia Burns

September 17, 1939 — May 15, 2024

Patricia A. Burns, age 84, a cherished soul with a heart full of kindness and love, passed away on May 15, 2024.  She was born in Latrobe, PA, on September 17, 1939, to the late Eugene and Helen (Zamborsky) Harkcom. Patricia was a devoted wife to Donald Burns for 61 years.
Her life was adorned with the joy of family and friends. She is survived by her loving children Timothy (Barb) Burns, Tammie (John) Graham, and Thomas (Melissa) Burns. 

Beloved grandmother of Beth (Evan) Fetterolf, Josh (Ondrea) Burns, Hayden Graham, and Brandon Graham. Her legacy further blossoms through her great-grandchildren Eloise and Coen Fetterolf, as well as Emerson and Easton Burns.
Within the tapestry of her life were threads of hobbies and interests that brought her immense joy - from indulging in Lifetime movies to eagerly following soap operas like Days of Our Lives. Her fascination with game shows added a touch of excitement to her days. Patricia's faith was profound as she found solace as a member of the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church.
In the light of her absence, we remember Patricia not with sorrow but with gratitude for having shared our lives with hers. She leaves behind a void that can only be filled by memories of her kind spirit. Among those who will forever hold her dear is her brother, Robert (Jeannie) Harkcom.
As we gather to honor the life of Patricia A. Burns, let us reflect on the love she shared so generously with all who knew her. May her memory be a beacon of light guiding us through moments both joyful and challenging.
Services to celebrate Patricia's life will be held at Snyder-Green Funeral Home in Ligonier on May 19th for viewing from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The funeral service will take place at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on May 20th at 11:00 AM. Internment to follow at St. Ann Cemetery.  
In loving memory of a remarkable woman whose presence brought comfort and joy to many.
