San Francisco, CA — Patricia A. Hurley
Sept. 20, 1941 – April 24, 2014
Patricia “Pat” Hurley of San Francisco, daughter of the late Richard R. and Kathleen F. (Lawler) Hurley of Marblehead, passed away peacefully at home, with family and friends at her side, on Thursday, April 24, 2014, following a courageous battle with breast cancer. Born and raised in Marblehead, Pat was a 1959 graduate of Marblehead High School and a 1963 graduate of Merrimack College.
For 40 years, Pat owned and operated Today Personnel Services in San Francisco and she was active in many of the cultural aspects of her adopted city. Pat's adventures led to the far corners of the world but she especially looked forward to her trips home to her beloved Marblehead to visit her family and many close friends. As a friend of Pat’s said, “She loved San Francisco but always kept one foot in Marblehead."
She leaves many old and dear friends and her close-knit family: brother, Richard Hurley and his wife, Priscilla of Dennisport, Mass.; sister, Kathleen Simonson and her husband, Don of Piedmont, Calif.; sister, Barbara Hurley of Greenville, S.C.; brother, Stephen Hurley and his wife, Diane of Peabody, Mass. Pat also leaves four nieces, three nephews, three great-nephews, and several cousins, all of whom were very dear to her heart.
ARRANGEMENTS: Memorial services are planned for later this summer on both coasts. Donations in Pat's name can be made to Hospice by the Bay at www.hospicebythebay.org.
