Patricia Ann “Pat” Romano, age 76, of Milton, DE, passed away on Thursday, July 15, 2021.

Born in Bronx, New York on April 19, 1945, she was a daughter of the late John and Pauline (Whitehouse) Pittelli. Pat graduated from Bethpage High School and soon after became a hairdresser.  She eventually married, enjoyed raising and caring for her family and many friends.  She decided to follow her passion of caring for others by earning her Nursing degree later in life, while her children were still attending grade and high school.  Pat worked at Brunswick hospital on Long Island before relocating to Virginia, where she spent the majority of her career years working at Sentara Obici Hospital as a psychiatric nurse, eventually retiring to Delaware.

In her leisure time, Pat enjoyed spending time with family and friends, caring for her many pets, reading, listening to music, line dancing, playing scrabble, cards and making any event she planned special.  She was an amazing cook and loved her movies and popcorn.  In retirement, she enjoyed traveling, playing bar bingo at the American Legion and her greatest joy, being a Grandma.

In addition to her parents, Pat was preceded in death by her sister, Sandy Sokolski and brother-in-law, Stan.  She is survived by her daughter, Kim Romano; son, John Romano; daughter-in-law, Michelle; granddaughter, Gianna; nephew, Mike Sokolski; nieces, Kris Sokolski (Brad) and Sue Patuano (Ray); great nephews, Michael, Mason and Quinn; and great niece, Kayla.
