Patti Blom Parent, on October 16, 2021, at home after an illness starting in February 2021. She appreciated all the support she received from her Facebook friends.
Beloved wife of Jeff Parent of 42 years. Survived by her loving and devoted sisters Barbara Maher and her husband Gregory, and Marilyn Nash and her husband Matthew. Cherished aunt of Melissa, Morgan and Megan. Pre-deceased by her parents, William and Doris Blom, and her in-laws, William and Mary Parent who loved her like she was their daughter.
After Jeff's retirement, Patti and Jeff moved to a new community called Latitude Margaritaville in Hardeeville, SC in April 2020, shortly after construction finished. They were longtime residents of Monroe, NY.
She loved her high school experience, especially her choir participation and loved going to The Fireplace when in Paramus to meet out-of-town classmates. She was a co-administrator and content contributor of the PHS Class of 1974 Facebook group. Patti loved restoring and archiving family photos and movies to share on Facebook.
Member of the Old Paramus Reformed Church in Ridgewood, NJ.

Working together with Patti on the PHS 1974 Facebook group was truly a great experience. And, in fact, how I became an active participant seeing what fun she had making posts. I loved interacting with her on this. She was appreciative to see me at her mother's wake, and she and Jeff looked great. She looked forward to her new life in a fun community and was having a great time till she got "blindsided" as she put by her diagnosis.
I pieced together a temporary obituary for her until I have an official one. I will miss her spirit and enthusiam for life, for rememberance of life in Paramus High, and for the vissitudes of the changes in Paramus where she was a frequent visitor from her home in Monroe. She will be missed by many classmates.
