Obituary for Patricia A. Foy

Patricia Foy was born in Detroit to Michael Clement Foy and Fae Llewelyn Foy. She is survived by Megan, her beloved GoldenDoodle, in addition to many cousins and friends. Patricia, known to her friends and family as Pat, loved the finer things in life. Born to a butcher's son, she never turned down a blue filet, a Perfect Manhattan, or well-made French baguette. Pat’s beautiful smile would light up a room and her empathetic compassion for others was admired by all that knew her.

She graduated from Mercy High School in 1950. She then attended Michigan State University and received a Bachelor's degree in Social Work in 1954. She was a true Spartan, never missed a Saturday football game.

Pat found her calling early in life. Her experiences at Catholic Charities led her to the University of Loyola, Chicago where she earned a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work. From there, she returned to Michigan to the University of Detroit. She continued her passion for students in the Hazel Park School District, where she stayed for the remainder of her career advocating for the voices that needed to be heard.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Holy Name Catholic Church 630 Harmon Street on Monday, October 18, 2021 at 10am.
