Obituary

Patricia Elizabeth Pontier, age 64, of Clifton, NJ and Barrington, IL passed away peacefully on Wednesday January 5, 2022. Patricia was a longtime resident of Clifton, NJ until moving to Barrington, IL five years ago.

Patricia was a devoted daughter to Frances and Warren Pontier, while also working in various occupations in the Clifton and Passaic area for 33 years. She worked as a medical support aide at St. Joseph Hospital in Paterson and Beth Israel Hospital in Passaic. Additionally, she worked as a receptionist at American Cyanamid in Clifton and Midlantic Bank in Woodlawn Park.

Patricia was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Clifton, where she served as a deacon for many years. She enjoyed relaxing with a cup of coffee and continued the tradition, started by her grandmother, of watching her favorite soap opera, General Hospital.

Upon moving to Illinois, Patricia became a member of the United Church of Christ in Barrington. She loved going for walks with her beloved Shih-Tzu, Hardy.  In her newly adopted state, she became a dedicated Cubs fan, but was left heartbroken over the 2021 season.

Patricia is survived by her siblings, Peggy Pontier-Renery of San Bruno, CA, Dr. Paul J. Pontier of Blacksburg, VA, and Cynthia J. Pontier of Barrington, IL; four nieces and nephews; and six grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Preceded in death by her parents, Warren and Frances Pontier; and her grandnephew, Jacob Paul Narvid.
