Sharpless, Patricia Sue (Pat)

Lyons, NY: On February 16, 2018. Pat was born January 7, 1941 in Wilkes Barre, PA to parents Edwin Francis Lally and Rose Gertrude Lally (Reisinger). She is survived by her loving husband Jim Sharpless; two sons J. Craig & Keith; step-daughter Heather and daughter-in-law Nikki.

After finishing her career working as a software engineer in Southern New Jersey, Pat wanted to enjoy the outdoors and explore nature.  She and Jim would take many trips to Texas and volunteer in various Texas State Parks as guides. During the spring and summer months Pat loved playing tennis and working in the garden while listening to music and NPR on her radio. Pat grew organic vegetables on their certified-organic farm in Lyons and sold them at several local farmer’s markets.
