Patricia Pollich


Patricia (Pat) Pollich passed away Wednesday June 23rd surrounded by her loving family.

Pat was born in Washington, DC and lived in Northern Virginia for most of her life. She was educated in Virginia Catholic schools and later received her RN degree from NOVA community college. Pat married the love of her life, Gardiner, in August of 1968. Pat and Gardy raised their 3 children in the Northern Virginia area and retired to Hampstead NC in 2015 to be closer to family and beaches they so loved.

Ever the caretaker and always passionate about those in need, Pat spent most of her career in gerontology, tending compassionately and lovingly to the elderly. Living by example, Pat touched the lives of all around her by influencing all of us to love more, give more, and be better people. Comments about the fierce loyalty our family shares with each other and our friends is commonplace and true. She has always been an amazing example to all of us, especially to her children and grandchildren.

Pat is survived by her children Nichole Feinsot and husband Andy, John Pollich and wife Devon, Jennifer Henriques and husband Mike, 5 grandchildren Lucy, Calvin, Benjamin, Nathan, and Jackson, siblings Michael Mahoney and wife Rita, Sharon Mahoney, Colleen Moore and husband Ralph as well as a large family of cousins, nieces, nephews. Most importantly Pat leaves behind the love of her life and best friend of 53 years, Gardiner, whose teamwork and commitment were revered by all who knew them.

Memorial Mass will be held 11 am Saturday, July 10, 2021 at All Saints Catholic Church in Hampstead, NC

    We didn't want it to be...our Glenister gang lost a bright light. Our adult kids grew up together on that Street in Springfield..we all remained friends through all the years..it binds us. Pat was someone so special, that smile, her caring spirit, the love she showed everyone..Ron had a special friendship with Pat and Gardy. He would always want to be the first one to say " Happy Birthday" to her. They forged a friendship that they are continuing now with Jesus in heaven. Never forgotten..always loved. Everyone be blessed.

    My heart breaks each time I think about the huge loss to her family, friends and the world she lived in. Pat was always the brightest light in any room, she was a surrogate mother to many, loved her family and friends and always knew that the work, love, family and friendship she and Gardy shared together and for one another was a true blessing from God. Neither of them ever took a moment of their time together for granted. It was inspiring to all looking for a love like that and to those that had found love and just prayed theirs would be even half of what Pat and Gardy had. Some of my favorite days/‘memories are the days spent w the Pollich’s and how they just swooped you up to make you feel like family. Losing her here on earth is a big loss to many, but I know her bright light and love of life, family and friends will shine on in all that knew and loved her. May we all live a life as well loved and well lived as Pat did. Sending my deepest condolences and much love to the family.

    Pat Pollich was incredibly kind & giving. When I was home recovering from surgery she made me homemade chicken noodle soup. It was delicious & her kindness was never forgotten. God Bless you Pat!
