OBITUARY:

Patricia (Anderson) Kittredge-Lorino, loving wife of Eugene Lorino, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 15th, surrounded by family and friends, knowing that she was loved, cherished adored.

Born in Washington D.C. she was the devoted daughter of Dr. Paul S. and Barbara A. (Gilleland) Anderson. She had lived in Falls Church, Virginia for her first five years and then moved to Melrose when her father, Dr. Paul S. Anderson, became the Senior Research Economist at a Boston bank.

Pattie graduated from Melrose High School in 1968, continued on to North Shore Community College and received her LPN. She continued her education at Northeastern University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree, and became a Registered Nurse.

Following a thirty year nursing career in hospitals and nursing centers, Pattie returned to school and received her Paralegal Certificate. After having completed an intership with Americorp, she devoted herself to assisting women who had been abused.

In 1969 she married Peter Kittredge, with whom she shared two daughters, and later they divorced.

Pattie moved to Newmarket, New Hampshire, where she made her home and in the new millennium married Eugene “Gino??? Lorino. Together they were very devoted to the Grace Chapel in Lexington, leading Alpha Groups and also attending Bethany Church in NH, who provided Pattie with tremendous support during her illness.

Being very devoted to her family, Pattie had a vibrant personality and thoroughly enjoyed being around and doing for her family, friends and strangers alike. Her children and grandchildren shared many happy times together. When she was informed of her terminal illness, she spent the next five months with her family and friends vacationing in Maine, New Hampshire, and the Cape, extending her generosity and spirited personality right up until the last week. She died peacefully at home amongst her family and friends after having shared her life, her humor, healing touch and true zest for living with so many people.

In addition to her husband Eugene and her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Paul Anderson, she is survived by her children, Jennifer Kittredge and her partner Bryan Walker of Woburn and Joanne Wood and her husband William C. of Melrose, her sisters Seana Anderson of Brooklyn, NY and Barbara J. Cogan of Sudbury, her cherished grandchildren, Kayla and Daniel Kittredge, Patrick, Brendon and Connor Wood and Aiden Walker. Also surviving are several loving nieces and nephews.

  1. As a friend of Seana Anderson, I want to say what a profound impact I know Pattie had on the lives of others. My sympathies are with you today.

  2. I had the privilege of meeting Patti through the Alpha program at Grace Chapel a few years ago. I was saddened to hear of her passing as I was not aware that she had been sick.

    When I think of Patti, what comes to mind immediately is her spark and enthusiasm, sense of humor, beautiful smile and give-it-all-you’ve-got laugh. Of course, when I think of Patti, I also think of her great love for Gino and their remarkable love story with both each other and with the Lord–in who’s arms Patti is surely resting, if not dancing!

    My heart goes out to all of Patti’s family and friends, and hope you all know how many lives, mine included, her precious soul has touched.

    With much sympathy,
    Janice Whitehead
