PATRICIA A. LEAHY DURKIN, 78, of Stuart, FL, passed away on Saturday, April 24, 2021, with her four daughters at her side. Patricia was born in Bronx, NY, and resided in Jackson Twp., NJ for over 24 years, prior to moving to Stuart, FL.

She was widowed in 2001 with the passing of her husband, Joseph and found happiness again 10 years later when she met and married Tom Durkin.
