BELFAST — Patricia H. Richardson left this world Sunday, Oct. 3, 2021. She was born Aug. 18, 1934. She was a devoted mother, wife and friend; her family was the most important thing in her life.

Patricia was predeceased by her mother, Hope Tibbetts; her father, Samuel Tibbetts; and her husband, Donald Richardson.

She is survived by her children, Dawn Richardson and partner Marie Manzo, Michael Richardson and wife Joan, and Julie Bonin and husband Mike; two brothers, Samuel Tibbetts and wife Pat, and Philip Tibbetts and wife Sandra; grandchildren Lindsey Lemay, Megan Day, Sam Richardson, Michael “Ross” Bonin II and Brennen Bonin; and great-grandchildren Rylie Bonin, Peyton Bonin and Finn Richardson.

Patricia had many enjoyments in her life. She loved singing, skating, ballet, dancing, camping, family cookouts and family holidays. She loved to sew and make clothes. She was a presser at Em Bee Cleaners in Belfast, a job she truly loved. The people who worked there became her second family.

The family would like to thank the medical team that took good care of her, especially hospice and Sussman House in Rockport. What a fantastic job they do.

There will be no service for now because of the pandemic. A celebration of life will happen at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sussman House in Rockport. We have never experienced end-of-life care like these people provide.

Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at
