1936 - 2021
Poughkeepsie NY - Patricia (Pat) Aglione, a resident of Hyde Park Assisted Living passed away on October 30, 2021 at Vassar Brothers Hospital after a very brief illness, with family by her side.
Pat was born January 7, 1936 in Peekskill to Thomas Matessino and Lorenza Manning
Matessino. They later moved to Yonkers.
When Pat was in her early twenties she worked for FINAST Supermarkets where she met her future husband Sal at a union negotiation meeting. On June 11, 1961 they wed at Mt. Carmel Church in Yonkers. As their family grew she was lucky to be able to spend the next 20 years being a stay at home mom. When the girls were grown she worked at Capital Bakery and Shoprite, both in Fishkill. For a few years she worked with Sal on one of his dreams of owning a small restaurant “Aggies” in Wappingers before they decided to relocate to Florida. Once grandchildren started coming along they moved back to Wappingers.
Pat’s greatest pride and joy was the large family that she and Sal created. She loved hosting family and friends for card games, Sunday dinners, and milestone celebrations. She loved making the holidays special by baking pies and cookies. For many years she even hand drew brown paper bags with Christmas scenes on them to be used as our stockings. Pat was always involved with her community, from PTA to organizing games, crafts, caroling and monthly birthday luncheons and beer and pizza nights at all the communities they lived at over the years.
This past June we were extremely lucky to be able to celebrate Pat and Sal’s 60th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends.
Pat is survived by her children Joanne Masters (Dennis), Donna Benson (Jason), SallyAnn
Shute, Carmella Morrison (Dave), Patricia Kuehner (Garrett).
She loved being “Mimi” to her 9 grandchild whom she loved with all her heart. Mathew Benson (Kate), Taylor Benson, Ryan Shute (Courtney), Jennifer Shute, Danielle Morrison, Dave Morrison, Garry Kuehner, Joseph Kuehner and Mitchell Kuehner.
She gained the title of Great Grandma for Chase Benson, Charlotte Benson and Gavin Shute.
She is also survived by her siblings, Carol Torrano, Ralph Matessino, and many nieces,
nephews, Grand nieces and nephews.
To say she was blessed by family is an understatement.
Pat was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Lorenza Matessino. Siblings Edward,
Thomas Jr and Dominick.
The family would like to thank the staff at Hyde Park Assisted living for their care of her over the past 2 and a half years. We would also like to acknowledge the gracious accommodations given to us by the staff at Vassar Brothers during this difficult time.
