Patricia Anne Rodman Obituary

Patricia Anne Rodman of West Chester, formerly of Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

Patricia Anne Rodman, 77 of West Chester, PA died Sunday November 26, 2023, at the Barclay Friends in West Chester.

She was the wife of 57 years to Gerard William Rodman.

Born Sept. 24, 1946, in New York, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Michael Smyth and the late Anne McDermott Smyth.

Patricia worked as a bookkeeper in the accounting profession for more than 20 years at several New York companies, as well as many in Pennsylvania where she and Jerry moved to be closer to their children.

Pat was a loving mother, wife, and friend to all who knew her. As a mom, she was a pillar of unwavering strength and discipline, teaching her children that hard work pays off. She was a beacon for her children through life’s tumultuous seas toward shores of success and fulfillment.

One of her favorite places to be and spend time was Wildwood, N.J., She enjoyed celebrating Irish Weekend on her birthday every year, listening and dancing to all the Irish music with family and friends. She enjoyed it so much she joined the Wildwood Emerald Society, where she was a member for several years.

She embraced her role as Nanie; there was nothing but love and fun with her grandchildren until she got sick. She LOVED a great water fight and never missed an opportunity to give them ice cream for breakfast. She loved getting a rise out of her children by letting her grandchildren do things she would never let them do at the same age. When they were younger, she enjoyed watching and cheering them on from the soccer sidelines.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children, Pattie Rodman (Douglas) Gee, Thomas (Elizabeth "Beth") Rodman, Tara Rodman (James "Stu" Robert) Stewart, grandchildren Michael (Jessica) Gee, Kaitlyn Gee, Daniel Gee, Brandon Gee, Caley Gee, Erin Gee, Sean Rodman, Thomas James "TJ" Rodman, Katherine "Katie" Rodman, Brody Stewart, Delaney Stewart, great-granddaughters, Giovanna Gee, and Mikaela Gee.

She is also survived by her siblings, Maureen (late William) Brown, sister, Ann (Louis “Bud”) Tomafsky, and Michael (Dorothy) Smyth.
