Patricia LaPan, of Whitinsville, and formerly of Westborough, passed away on Monday, May 15, 2023.
Always ready for the next adventure, Pat lived life to the fullest and enjoyed cooking, spending quality time with friends and family, and traveling to both new and familiar places.
She graduated from Westboro High School in 1979, where she met lifelong friends. After that, she attended Northeastern University. Much of her professional career was spent traveling as a consultant for Oracle Corp. She ended her career as a consultant at Staples Corp. Pat loved discovering new areas and lived in Virginia and Arizona for several years before returning to Massachusetts.
Pat was well-known for her excellent sense of humor, her positive outlook, her eagerness to explore a new place, hobby, or restaurant, and to cook a new or favorite dish, (including her incredible roasted pecans). She always had the latest kitchen gadget, could tell you which new movies were the best, and had a way of making everyone feel welcome when they were in her presence.
Pat leaves behind her brother, Rick LaPan, sister-in-law Ann LaPan, niece Sunnie LaPan, nephew Kyle LaPan, best friend Barbie Bush, and many well-loved friends and cousins. She is predeceased by her parents Arthur ‘Red’ Lapan and Bernice Lapan.
Services will be held privately.
