Virginia Pat Michaely Morrow
February 25, 1930 - October 18, 2021
Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
I am Pat Morrow. My parents named me Virginia Michaely, but I’ve always been called “Pat”. I was born in Philadelphia on February 25, 1930 and was the third in a line of 6 children. My sisters Jane (Moffett) and Ruth (Custer) are left.
Our Mom was gone by the time I was 6 years old. Our dad, Raymond Michaely, moved us to Langhorne PA when I was 13. From the age of 6 to 13 we moved to various foster homes. I graduated from Langhorne High School now known as Neshaminy and dreamed of going to art school. In those days, that was not to be. After falling in love with Charles Morrow, we married in 1949.
We spent most of our lives in Langhorne, PA raising our 7 children. Most of those years I spent as a full-time mom and homemaker, den mother, girl scout leader, Catholic church member and volunteer, a junior league member, PTA member, and all things family related. I guess I always volunteered in every way imaginable; cooking, sewing, hand holding, costume maker, peace maker, caregiver and steadfast supporter of Charlie. When the children were older, I had a career as a bank teller at First National Bank of Newtown. I loved life and it seems people found my “ways” comforting. We always had room for “one more” at our dinner table.
Charlie and I retired to Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia when our last child took flight. We treasured our time together for many years. Being out in the Virginia Mountains made my heart sing while our church, community and extended family filled our lives. I studied and became a CASA ( Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteer in Franklin County VA. I was proud to be part of CASA and felt fortunate to touch so many young lives.
My immediate family is listed below. Unfortunately, I do not have room to list all my wonderful nieces, nephews, and friends whom I consider family as well.
