The incredibly strong Patricia Ann Temple (Circelli) of New Hartford, NY passed away Thursday November 16, 2023 in the comfort of her best friend’s home, on what would have been her mother’s 92nd birthday.

Patricia was born April 22, 1965, daughter of Gloria and Kenneth Temple. She attended New Hartford schools, where she did gymnastics and other sports. She was a dialysis tech at Faxton Hospital and a CNA at Presbyterian home. She was a loving mother who would have done anything for her kids, she loved lighthouses, doing diamond art and puzzles, and getting high scores in her iPad games. In 2010, she was diagnosed with her original cancer and was told she’d only have 5 years to live. Through various obstacles and cancers, she fought courageously and bravely for 13 years.

She is survived by children, Bradley Jones, Kayla Jones, Jenna Circelli, and Amanda Circelli; parent, Kenneth Temple; siblings, Debra Greaves, Ken Temple, Bonnie Betancourt; longtime friends Kathy and Earl Sowich; and many amazing friends who stood by her side throughout her fight. She is predeceased by her mother Gloria, fellow warrior and friend Thomas, longtime friend Brian, canine companion Tamlin, and will join them in the next life.

The family would like to thank Hospice and all medical care staff/doctors Patricia has had over the years.

Visiting hours will be at 11am-1pm, following with a funeral at 1pm on Tuesday November 21st, 2023. Arrangements are with the Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral and Cremation Services, 13 Oxford Rd, New Hartford. Her ashes will be planted with a tree, as she wished and requested before she passed.
