SCARBOROUGH — Patricia Dawn (Willette) McNulty passed away Thursday, Feb. 9. She was 86 years old.

She was born Sept. 1, in Kingman, to Della Mae (Thompson) and Dennis Willette. Pat grew up in Lewiston, the middle child of 15 brothers and sisters. She was always happy to share fond memories of her childhood adventures with her close knit family. There was a tight bond between the Willette’s that continued throughout her life.

After marrying William McNulty, she moved to Farmingdale where she and Bill owned Mama-Rosa’s pizza place in Augusta for many years. Pat was known for her secret marinara sauce and meatball recipe, that she refused to share. When Patricia retired, she moved to Winslow. She was an avid reader, reading up to seven books a week. Patty was also a talented carpenter, crafter, seamstress and quilter. She enjoyed card games, cribbage, solitaire and was even known to play a poker hand. She was always happy to spend time with family, particularly her eight grandchildren of whom she was immensely proud.

She is survived by her son, Daniel Jalbert and his wife, Rhonda, of Port Angelas, Wash., and their daughters, Melanie and Kari and her great-grandchildren, Kenzi, Amilyah and Eli; her daughter, Tracy (McNulty) and her husband, Michael Ayer, of Winslow, and their children, Michelle, Patricia (Trish) and Sam; her son, Tim McNulty and his wife, Stacy, of Scarborough, and their children, Caitlyn, Molly and Meghan; her niece, Janis, with whom she was particularly close; her sisters, Lucille Popodak, Sandra Willette and Sheila Gottuso; her brother, Michael; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by siblings, Clarence (Joe), George (Buddy), Manzer, John (Reggie), Bill, Dennis (Butchie), Roland, Lorraine Willette, Delia Beaulieu, Gloria Rafferty; her husband, William McNulty; and her beloved son, Tommy Jalbert, who she deeply missed and spoke of often in her last days.

She made a lasting memory on those who knew her and will be greatly missed.
