Patricia (Pat) Brennan went to her rest on May 4, 2023. She was born to Margaret Kett (née McGeever) and Patrick Kett on June 29, 1942, and was a fond sister to Maureen (Joseph) Ruane. She was a beloved wife to Frank W. Brennan (“Bud”); a wonderful mother to Francis Brennan and Michael (Lisa) Brennan; a cherished grandmother to Angelo, Elizabeth, and Maddison; a fond sister-in-law and friend to Frances Sullivan; and aunt to many loved nieces and nephews.
Pat earned a Masters Degree from Concordia in curriculum, and worked as an educator in Palatine grade schools until her retirement in 2007. Pat loved music and musicals, going to restaurants, and watching chef shows, but not cooking! She made the best Irish soda bread ever, and liked to bake with her granddaughters. Family was everything to Pat and she enjoyed spending time with her family and indulging her grandchildren. Pat showed us the importance of friendship, and she had so many friends that you could never book her on a Friday or Saturday night. She was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Palatine, where she was an eucharistic minister and a sponsor for the confirmation of new Catholics.
She now rejoins her husband and love, Frank (Bud); baby Ann & baby Timmy; her parents, Margaret and Patrick; sisters-in law, Peg and Mary; Uncle Charlie; and her best friend, Sally. She will be deeply missed.
