Patricia Ann Neurohr (nee Coyle) of Jackson Heights, NY, passed away at 85 after a short illness on Friday, September 25th, 2020 in Newport News, Virginia. Preceded in death by her parents (Terrence and Helen Coyle of Brooklyn, NY) and her brother Terrence, also of Brooklyn. She leaves behind a loving, devoted husband in James Francis Neurohr (since 1959) of Brooklyn, NY, and her two sons Fred (Elizabeth Kitchell) of Cincinnati, Ohio & James of Yorktown, Virginia. She was also a doting grandmother to grandchildren Abigail Constance Neurohr and Joseph Coyle Kitchell of Cincinnati – she was never late with a birthday card and, during visits, never missed the opportunity to tell them how beautiful, smart, and tall they are. We will all miss her continuous requests for more pictures of her grandkids, and her genuine interest in all their activities and accomplishments.
Throughout her life, Patricia (or Patsy, as she was often called) was a devout Catholic, primarily of two main parishes: Our Lady of Perpetual Help in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn (which counted her parents and grandparents as parishioners), as well as St. Joan of Arc in Jackson Heights, Queens, where she dutifully worshipped during the last forty years of her life. When she was alive, she passed along her love of music and reading to those around her, and was a devotee of classic New York City diners, Irish culture, and a good cup of coffee (and sometimes a not-so-good cup of coffee). She bestowed a love of the New York Yankees to her youngest son, while her eldest gravitated to the nearby Mets – she followed both teams closely and enjoyed extensive discussions of players and statistics, as well as teaching her kids the dying art of handwritten baseball scorekeeping.
Her sons, grandkids, nieces, nephews, and people in her community of Jackson Heights will forever miss her kind smile, Irish charm, and her words of genuine love and affection.
In lieu of flowers, please know Patricia would appreciate donations be made, no matter how modest, to the Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired in Cincinnati, Ohio, or the Catholic Foundation for Brooklyn and Queens.
