Pat married Joe Palermo in June, 1947 and gave birth to 15 children. She was predeceased by infant son Joseph, husband Joseph and 2 grandchildren, James Palermo and Laurie Palermo. Ma (Grandma Pat) leaves behind an amazing legacy…14 surviving children, their spouses, 38 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.
