It is with deep sorrow and much love that we share the passing of Patricia Elaine (Drick) Lamoreaux, age 64, of Sunnyside Farm, Pennsdale, who passed away on Monday, June 14, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on May 7, 1957, in Muncy, the daughter of the late Harold Raymond Drick and the late Helen Irene (Fry) Drick. On June 18, 1977, she married John Clark Lamoreaux, of Berwick, Pa., who survives. Together they were preparing to celebrate 44 years of marriage.
Patricia was a 1975 graduate of Muncy High School. She continued her education and graduated from the Williamsport Area Community College with a Practical Nursing degree. She obtained her nursing license and began her nursing career as a Licensed Practical Nurse in the Coronary Care Unit of the Williamsport Hospital. She furthered her education at The Williamsport Hospital School of Nursing where she graduated as a proud member of the final class, in 1988, with a Registered Nursing Degree. Patricia obtained her Registered Nursing License and proudly continued to work with heart patients in the Intensive Care Unit of the Williamsport Hospital. Her passion was being a quality nurse and providing the best possible medical care for others. She retired in March of 2020 after 44 years of service.
Patricia was continually active in her church and in the community. She is a life-long member of the Pennsdale Trinity United Methodist Church. She was a Sunday School Teacher, a member of the United Methodist Women, taught Bible School, was active in the Adult Life Group, and served on nearly every board and committee in the church. Patricia was a member of the Muncy Township Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary where she served as secretary. She was president of the Pennsdale Branch of the Needlework Guild of America. Patricia was a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts of America. She served as a girl scout leader for Muncy Troop 263 of the Girls Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania Council. She helped several girls achieve their Gold Awards. When her children were in school, she served as President of the Organization of Parents and Teachers (O.P.T.) at Myers Elementary School and was President of the Parents, Teachers, and Students Association (P.T.S.A.) at the Muncy High School. She was active in the Muncy Little League and Pack 24 and Troop 25 of the Boy Scouts of America in Muncy. She was a past President of the Muncy Athletic Booster Club, was serving as the President of the Muncy Alumni Association, and was an active committee member of the Muncy School District Foundation at the time of her passing.

She was a member of the Board of Directors, Historian, and Spring Banquet Co-chair for the Williamsport Hospital School of Nursing Alumni Association.
Patricia was identified by the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau and Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture as a “lady farmer” who took pride in operating Sunnyside Farm. Patricia was an avid historian who took pride in her detailed knowledge of her family, church, and community history. She loved to collect family and local milk bottles and antiques. Patricia was a dedicated fan for all her children’s little league, travel ball, high school, and college sporting events.
Patricia enjoyed singing in church and community choirs. She will be remembered as a friendly, kind, and helpful neighbor in the farming and surrounding community in Pennsdale.
Surviving, in addition to her husband, are two children of whom she has always been proud. A son, Nathaniel John Drick Lamoreaux, currently residing in Philadelphia, a daughter, Natalie Elaine Irene Lamoreaux, who resides at the family farm in Pennsdale, and a future son-in-law, Colby James Thomas, of Kingsley, Pennsylvania.
