Patricia Elizabeth (Patnoad) Harrison, 86, of Ashaway, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Sun., June 6, 2021. Born in Westerly to the late Joseph and Catherine Patnoad, Patricia graduated Westerly High School. She was the wife of the late Gordon P. Harrison, Sr.

Patricia worked at Stanley Bostitch Manuf. Co., and for her family’s restaurant, The Lantern Glow, then owned and operated The Village Sandwich Shoppe.

Patricia’s pride and joy were her ten grandchildren, fifteenth great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Her expanded family of many special lifelong friends, included the Merritt family, and those with whom she spent time and made memories at her two seasonal homes in Otisfield, ME, and Venice, FL.
