Patricia Ann Alfieri

Patricia Ann Alfieri passed away at Christiana Hospital on Sunday, September 29, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Patricia Callahan of Wilmington and her beloved husband, Mauro (Butch) Alfieri of Wilmington.

Pat is survived by her two brothers Jack Callahan (Beth), Thomas Callahan (Dianne), her six children: Maureen Alfieri, Michele Nichol Naylor (John), Lisa Alfieri, Maura Hendrixson (Eric), Mauro Alfieri (Erin), and Joseph Alfieri (Brittany) and 11 grandchildren: Eric, Helena, Virginia, and Annamay Hendrixson, Genevieve and Jack Naylor, and Mauro IV, Larkin, Franco, Giuseppe, and Vincenzo Alfieri, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Pat attended St. Thomas Grade School and St. Elizabeth High School (Class of 1962). She was a supervisor at the Wilmington Telephone Company after graduation. She married Butch Alfieri in 1966, and they had six children. She returned to the workforce after the death of her husband as an administrative assistant at Daniels and Tansy. She treasured her times at the family beach house in Wildwood Crest, NJ, enjoying “pasta on the porch” with her children, grandchildren, and all of their friends. She will be sorely missed by all of her friends and family.

    I graduated from St. Thomas's with Pat in 1958 and from Salesianum with Butch in 1962. We were friends but did not see each other very often because our careers took us in different directions. We did however see each other dining at the Rodney Square Club. Pat and Butch were fine people I was proud to call my friends. Please know that your families will be in my thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend Saturday's services because I will be out of town. Take care and God Bless.

    No one loved her family more. She will live on in her six children and their children. How wonderful to come to the end of one s life and be so loved!! Pat is now with her Lord and will wait to greet her children once again. A beautiful life story and an even better ending for her as a devout Christian.

    The loss of a loved is always a challenging time. We are sad that we no longer have them to share in our lives but knowing they are at peace in heaven brings us an inner joy. Keeping you all in my prayers.
