Patricia Ruth Trapani, 88, of Ross Township, formerly of Penn Hills, passed away on Monday, February 7, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on October 21, 1933, in Lawrenceville to the late Michael and Viola Konopelski. She was the wife of nearly 65 years to the late Dominic C. Trapani, who passed away May 21, 2020.

Patricia once wrote, “When all this comes to a screeching halt, I don’t intend to have too many should have done’s.” Rest assured, she did not.
