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.

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.

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.
