Patricia McDavitt Scanlon died on June 22, 2021 in Simsbury. She grew up in Norwood, MA, alongside her cousins Ted, Tim, and Pete. After graduating from Norwood Senior High School, she graduated from Regis College in Weston, MA, with a degree in home economics. Pat met her future husband, the late law professor Cornelius Scanlon, while working as a photographer for the Boston Record American.
Patricia believed in the importance of performing one’s civic duty and was awarded for such by the State of Connecticut. She was an active member of several Simsbury town boards, such as the Park and Rec Commission, and was a 4-H Club leader. She enjoyed substitute teaching at Simsbury High and enjoyed traveling extensively, both in this country and abroad. She was always happy to work in her gardens and belonged to the Gardeners of Simsbury.
Patricia passed her love of gardening, reading, and animals to her six children: Lt. Commander Gail Zeisser (ret’d) and her husband Norman; Charles Scanlon; the Honorable Patricia (Penny) Scanlon and her husband Fritz; Connie and Larry Ettelson; Neil and Mary Scanlon; and Steve and Helen Scanlon. The immediate family would not be complete without acknowledging her much-loved West Highland Terrier, Davitt.
Patricia also leaves her beloved grandchildren: Christopher and Michael; Anielka, Tamara, CJ, Adriana, and Inti; as well as Cody-Ann and Cassidy. She also has five great grandchildren.
Patricia wishes to remember her best friends, Jeannette and George Van Wormer and Shirley (deceased) and Bruce Metzger who were dear to her for decades. She would also like to thank Dennis Hannon and A.J. Zukowski for their consistent willingness to help her whenever she called upon them. And, finally, endless thanks from the whole family to her aide and “daughter in heart,” Elizabeth Madden, who made it possible for Pat to live independently and joyfully for so long.
Vincent’s Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. However, there will be a private reception at an appropriate time. The family requests that any donations be made to the Simsbury Public Library in Pat’s name.

always a smile, a great conversation, and how she loved her travels to see her children while her 'Patricia' stayed home and was a delight to spend time with -- Gregory, Bryan, and I loved watching Pat's cat, her beautiful violets, and spending time in the den just having great conversation!
I know it was a wonderful discovery when my father-in-law, (1926-2000) William M Hannon, Sr., and his wife Marion discovered Pat and Neil were residents of Simsbury - - cousins reunited!!

Thank you Aunt Pat for the time you shared with me and my sons!
Our deepest condolences to your entire family,
Mary "Cricket" Gobeli Hannon

Neil, Connie, Penny and the entire Scanlon family. Heaven has another 4-H angel. I may have never met your mom, but I know her impact by the wonderful children she raised and sent to 4-H activities and 4-H Camp. Keep her memories dear. My deepest condolences.

Pat was an outstanding person. In most cases she worked behind the lights to get things done. Much of her volunteer work is spelled out in her obit, but that is such a small part of her 96 years,
Her family was first and she was a great influence on her husband's sucessful career.
Kay and I remember the many hours we spent with the Simsbury Scanlons when we lived in CT. We would visit almost every Saturday night. We would spend time with her children and then played cards until early morning. We loved Pat so much. Kay and Franny Scanlon

Franny and Kay, Certainly Neil and Pat were amazing family and friends. My deepest condolences to the entire Scanlon Family, Mary "Cricket" Gobeli Hannon

Charlie, Penny and family, our prayers are with you and your mom, and dad. It’s been a few years since the old neighborhood but memories came flooding back of our folks and families, and the times on Ox Yoke and Eagle Lane. I was fortunate to have known both your parents during very interesting times, and the lessons were well learned and earned.
We hope the memories bring smiles to the days ahead. Bob and Carol Lindberg

Dear Gail, Charlie, Penny, Connie, Neil and Steven,
Sending you my heartfelt condolences. Your mom and dad were so very special and had a profound impact on my outlook on life and civic responsibilities. Her passing very much marks an end of an era.
