Patricia Garver (nee DiFilippo), 70, of Lorain, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 22, 2017, at Wesleyan Village, Elyria.
She was born on May 10, 1947 in Lorain, where she has lived her entire life, and is a 1965 graduate of Admiral King High School. Patricia truly enjoyed working and the occupation she had. She retired from PT Services at Mercy Regional Medical Center as a Physical Therapy Aide. After retirement, she couldn't leave her field completely and found herself returning back to work part-time.
Working was a hobby to Patricia. The greatest joy in her life though came from her time spent with her beloved grandchildren. She always looked forward to her monthly dinners with her friends, loved animals, and enjoyed walking.
Patricia is survived by her daughters, Carrie (Chris) Hemeyer and Cathy Fairbanks; step-son, Don (Joy) Garver; step-daughter, Debbie Mitchell; grandchildren, Marq and Bradley Fairbanks, and Maddie, Emma, and Alyssa Hemeyer; step-grandchildren, Gregory (Juliana) Mitchell, Patrick (Rebekah) Mitchell, and David Garver; her brother, Al (Ellen) DiFilippo; her sister, Julie Mannarelli, as well as her nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, Bobby Nickeson; her second husband, Duane Garver; and her parents, Pasquale and Gilda (nee Sciulli) DiFilippo.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 27, from 4 to 7 pm at the Dovin and Reber Jones Funeral & Cremation Center, 1110 Cooper Foster Park Road, Amherst, where services will be held on Thursday, at 11:00 am. Burial will follow in Ridge Hill Memorial Park, Amherst. 
Because of her love for animals, the family suggests contributions in her memory be made to the Friendship Animal Protective League, 8303 Murray Ridge Road, Elyria, Ohio 44035.
