Patricia A. Blake

PORTLAND – Patricia Ann Blake, of Portland, 74, passed away peacefully on April 26, 2019 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. She was born on July 13, 1944 to Ellen and Perley M. Blake of Portland.

        Patty was a kind and loving person, who devoted much of her life to the care of her mother and the well-being of her family and friends. She was loved by all who met her, and she always left behind a friendly and warm impression. She will be sadly missed by all of her friends and acquaintances at 100 State Street, in Portland. She loved to attend family gatherings, cookouts, Beano nights, rub scratch tickets and daily visits to Cumby’s; she also enjoyed trips to the casino, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady, Italian sandwiches with her family on the Eastern Promenade, all pets, and the children and teachers at the Foster Grandparent’s Program, at Catherine Day Morrill Day Nursery, in Portland. She especially enjoyed caring for and driving her mother around Portland experiencing the hustle and bustle of the city.

        She is survived by her sister, Katherine Blake Kilmartin and late brother-in-law James P. Kilmartin and their three children:  Kevin M. and Dennis J. Kilmartin and Kellie A. and her husband Phil J. Selberg, all of Portland;  a very close cousin, Faye, and her husband Jan Allen of Gorham; her brother Peter M. Blake and his wife Jill M. of Yarmouth and their two children: Christopher P. and Ashleigh M. Blake both of Portland;  and her aunts, uncles and many cousins and friends.

        A private burial will be held at Forest City Cemetery, in South Portland, later this month and a celebration of life will be held at a place and time to be determined.
