Patricia (Pattie) A. Alessi

October 16, 1935 ~ August 11, 2021 (age 85)


Patricia Ann Alessi, 85, of Youngstown, passed away peacefully Wednesday, August 11, 2021, at The Inn at Poland Way.

Patricia, known by family and friends as Pattie was born October 16th, 1935, in Youngstown. The daughter of the late Lucille and John Skinner.

Pattie graduated from Leetonia High School in 1953. She married Joseph Alessi Jr. on September, 6th 1954 at St. Patrick’s Church in Leetonia, OH. Together they raised four children, Christina, Sandra, Lisa, and Joseph at their home in Youngstown.

Pattie was very involved in her community throughout her life. Over the years, Pattie held positions as Director of the State of Ohio’s Air Quality Authority: Precinct Committee Person for the City of Youngstown’s 5th Ward: Director of the City of Youngstown’s Bicentennial Committee.

Pattie was a Parishioner and volunteer at St. Christine’s Church in Youngstown, OH for sixty-two years. She started the Bereavement Committee and the Welcome Committee and served as Sacristine and Wedding Coordinator. She also served on Parish Counsel and was lovingly known as “Pizza Mom.”

Pattie was an ardent fan of the New York Yankees, from a young age. Her passion was such that local radio stations in the Youngstown area gave her the nickname “Yankee Pattie” and she collected numerous Yankee paraphernalia, including signed mementos by legendary Yankees ballplayer Joe DiMaggio.

Throughout her life, Pattie loved and cherished her time spent with her family. She held a special place in her heart for her twelve grandchildren: Allison, Rachael, Chad, Lindsey, David, Devin, Mark, Joseph, Julia, Gina, Nathan, Joshua, as well as her great-granddaughter Natalie. She was known by her family as “Nane,” and her greatest sense of pride came from the position she held as Nane in the Alessi family.

Pattie is survived by her husband of 67 years, Joseph Alessi Jr. She is also survived by her two sisters, Victoria Moore of Boardman and Terri Scullion of East Palestine.

Interment will follow at St. Christine’s Center.

The family asks that donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, information provided below or, to the Dementia Society of America by mail to PO Box 600, Doylestown, PA 18901, or online"

The family would like to thank The Inn at Christine Valley, The Inn at Poland Way and Crossroads Hospice for the love, care, and support they gave to Patricia and her family.
