Obituary

Mary Florence "Flossie" (Major) Patch, of Saugus and Eastham, died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Monday, November 19th at the age of 90. She was the beloved wife for more than 50 years of the late Harold F. Patch, who died in 1992.

Born and raised in Chelsea, she was the daughter of the late Gordon Frank Major and Marie Zelia (Bernier) Major. Flossie was the drum majorette and class secretary for the Chelsea High School Class of 1940 and was active in planning class reunions. She enjoyed traveling, reading biographies, and needlework. Most of all, Flossie and her husband loved raising their six children and later caring for their 10 grandchildren; she was an inspiration to all of them, and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Cherished mother of Richard Patch of Saugus, James Patch and his wife Eileen of Reading, Edward Patch and his wife Julie of Bow, NH, Harold Patch II and his wife Audrey of Saugus, Irene Patch and her husband Anthony Barayon of Belchertown, and Nancy Theberge and her husband Andrew of Danvers. She was the loving grandmother of Allison & her husband Randall, Harold III and his wife Lauren, Gregory and his wife Jessica, Justin, Andrew, Timothy, Nicole, Darcy, Jillian, Elizabeth and great grandmother of Lindsay. Flossie was a caring aunt to many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Arthur Major, Frank Major, and Charles Major, and her sisters Eleanor McGregor and Irene Major.
