Patricia M. Studeny Coxon (McKean)

August 04, 1934 - August 28, 2023

Service: Friday, September 1, 2023, 11 am; Divine Grace Parish, St. Ferdinand Church

Patricia M. Studeny Coxon (McKean)

Age 89, of Cranberry Twp. passed away peacefully on Monday, August 28, 2023. Born August 4, 1934, daughter of the late Thomas Ivey and Margaret (Tubetto) McKean and sister of the late Mary Ann I. Dobroski.

Wife of the late Edward C. Studeny and John W. Coxon; Loving Mother of Michael (Elizabeth), Brian (Patty), Sharon (Thomas) Koch, and Julie (John) Macha. Grandma of Karen, Jacqueline, Sarah (James), Michael II (Aiyana-Mei), Joshua, and McKenna. Beloved GG of Fiona, and Carson. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Patty, a proud graduate of St Francis School of Nursing and School of Anesthesia, worked as a CRNA at St Francis Hospital, St Margaret’s Hospital, Central Medical, and Flagler Hospital. Patty was active in the former Immaculate Conception church and school in Bloomfield, serving as President of the PTG for many years and participating in every fundraising event.

The perfect host, she typically would hold huge dinner parties that awed guests with her many talents of cooking, baking, cake decorating and eye for decor. Her talents were so perfected that she made wedding cakes as a hobby and her cooking and baking decadents well known. Baking with love made her pizzelles, cookies, and holiday dishes, a staple in family tradition and holiday gatherings.

Patty’s many talents were just as strong outside of the kitchen, as her green thumb was also used to sew hand-made Halloween costumes and crochet every baby a blanket and bonnet for her family and friends.

Always seeking new adventures, Patty answered yet another call of giving and became a classroom assistant at the mere age of 75, where she could then share her love of reading with children.

Patty, a former resident of Palm Coast, Florida, of 37 years, remained active in her Catholic faith in the St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton Parish. Yet she still found the time to enjoy boating, traveling, golfing, and playing bingo, Pokeno and cards. She was a member of the Bridge club, Yacht Clubs, Blanketeers, VFW, and local organizations, both in Florida and Pennsylvania, that are too many to list.

Patty would commonly travel back and forth between Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania and Palm Coast, Florida, to enjoy her cherished loved ones. Her family will carry forward warm memories of treasured time, especially summer vacations in Ocean City, MD, and Florida, where she would dive into her murder mysteries on the beach, and losing to her on the putt-putt course.

Family and friends are welcome to a Mass of Christian Burial on Friday at 11 am at Divine Grace Parish, St. Ferdinand Church with Rev. John Gallagher officiating. Interment will be held at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

Professional arrangements are entrusted to Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry Township.

    Dearest Julie (and baby Mac and John) my heart aches for you in this loss. I absolutely adores Patty – mama! I will always cherish the handmade baby blanket she made for Gunnie when I brought him home and all of her parenting advice. And of course, she was one of the few who could get the little bigger to eat when he was little.
    She was ahead of time, a brilliant medical professional, funny as could be, invested in living a full life. I loved her Jule. She was beautiful inside and out just like you, courageous and independent. And you were the ultimate blessing to her in these last years. Sharing your home with her and you, John – what a precious gift that was for all of you. Love you.
