Music by The Piano Brothers

Of Murrysville, passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on Monday, April 15, 2019.  “I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.  I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.  I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.  I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; of happy memories that I leave when life is done”. 

Pat will be reunited with her beloved late husband, Richard J. Clougherty, her parents, Leroy and Agnes Rothrauff and her sister, Sally Hartman.  Pat is survived by her loving children, Kevin Clougherty, Tim (Wendy) Clougherty and Erin (Drew) Harchick, all whom she loved so dearly.  Also surviving are her amazing grandchildren, Charlie, Kate, Leah and Trey.  Pat was the oldest of six siblings, and leaves behind her brother, Lee (Margie) Rothrauff, her sisters, Carol (Jim) Robinson, Joan Saversky, and Rosemarie (Van) Catley and her sister-in-law, Mary Ellen Clougherty. 

She comes from a large Irish family and is survived by many cousins and friends.   Pat was a special aunt to many nieces and nephews who will all miss her very much. 

Pat was a member of Our Lady of Joy Church and served the community through Meals on Wheels.   “May you always walk in sunshine.  May you never want for more.  May Irish Angels rest their wings right beside your door”.  Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Dear Erin, My sympathies to you and your family on the passing of your mother. I have many fond memories working with her while we were members of Our Lady of Joy's Ladies Guild. She always had a smile on her face and was devoted to her family. May she rest in peace as she is reunited with your dad. Our prayers are with you.

My dearest Aunt Patty, my friend, I miss you so much

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me."

With tearful eyes we watched you
As you slowly slipped away
And though we loved you dearly
We couldn't make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped beating
Your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
