Patricia was born in County Kerry in 1949 and grew up in Lanesboro, County Longford, Ireland.  She was one of eight children to bless the O’Neill family.  She married Terence Neilan and they raised their family in Denville.  She was a woman of deep faith and instilled this and the values of hard work and family into her children. She worked at St. Ann’s Parish for many years and enjoyed it very much.  Above everything, Patricia loved being with her family.  She was the proud “Milka” to seven little ones.  She loved being a Grandmother and having the kids over often.  She will remain in our hearts forever.

 

 

Predeceased by her husband Terence; she leaves beautiful memories to her children Siobhan Hannagan (John), Terence Neilan (Brenda) and Mary Jo Sheahan (Thomas); her adoring grandchildren John, Cate, Liam, James, Shannon, Diego and Kevin; siblings Bernadette Troy, Robert O’Neill, Maura Clark and Daniel O’Neill, and many more loving relatives and friends. Her siblings Gerald, June and John Henry O’Neill passed previously.
