QUEENSBURY -- Patricia Olsen Arcuri, 77, went into the arms of our dear Lord, Friday, Dec. 2, 2011, at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

Born on Dec. 27, 1933 in Glens Falls, N.Y., Patricia was the daughter of the late Reidar L. and Elizabeth F. (LeClair) Olsen.

Patricia was a graduate of St. Mary's Academy in Glens Falls. She was retired from Niagara Mohawk.

Patricia always placed her family first and put others before herself. Her entire life was devoted to her children. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Patricia meant the world to her children. She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her for the person that she was.

In addition to her parents, Patricia was predeceased by her sister, E. Shirley Peck.

Patricia is survived by her six children, Francis J. Arcuri (Susan), Anne M. Arcuri, John E. Arcuri (Kathryn), Elizabeth F. Burch (Michael), Mary A. Arcuri (Mark S. Russo), and Tina M. DeMarsh (Richard); her grandchildren, Patti Arcuri, Cara Arcuri, Eddie Russo, Frank Arcuri, Mary Russo, Andrea Arcuri, John Arcuri, Steven Gibbs, Lauren Potter, Joseph Arcuri, Rachael Arcuri, Sean Burch, Liz DeMarsh, and Kellie DeMarsh; and her great-grandchildren, Anthony, Ava Grace and Jason. She is also survived by her sister, Eleanor Lemery; a special niece, Marianne Rogge; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

At her request, there will be no calling hours.

Burial will be private and at the convenience of her family.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation, in loving memory of Patricia, to The American Cancer Society, 959 Route 9, Mount Royal Plaza, Queensbury, NY 12804.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Pat was my mentor and such a wonderful friend....I'm so lucky to have had her in my life. I know she's in a better place and looking down on all of you with over whelming pride and love. She was love in every sense
    of the word! What a great, great lady.
