Patricia “Pat” Meehan, 65, passed away peacefully on Dec. 27, 2013, at St. Mary’s Hospital VITAS Unit. 

Born in Bridgeport on March 20, 1948, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Marie (Hanley) Meehan. She was a longtime resident of Naugatuck, and she was the director of St. Vincent Child Care Center for 30 years.  

Meehan was a devout Catholic and active member of St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Naugatuck, where she was a Eucharistic minister, and she often volunteered at many church activities and events. She was recognized for her volunteerism this year when she was the church's recipient of the annual St. Joseph Medal of Appreciation.

Meehan enjoyed her family, sewing, and browsing at tag sales. She was also extremely proud of her Irish heritage. 

She is survived by her daughter, Megan Meehan of Naugatuck; her brothers, Dan Meehan of Raymond, N.H., and David Meehan of Tampa, Fla.; her sisters, Barbara Hughes of Rindge, N.H., and Lori Delmore of Westerly, R.I.; and several nieces and nephews.  

Calling hours will take place on Monday, Dec. 30, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. Vincent Ferrer Church. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at St. Vincent Ferrer Church, 1006 New Haven Road, Naugatuck. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Patricia’s name may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.  

The Naugatuck Valley Memorial/Fitzgerald Zembruski Funeral Home, 240 North Main St., Naugatuck, is assisting the family with arrangements.
