Patricia Boisvert Luce Wyatt, 69 years young, died peacefully Monday, April 8, 2013, at Falmouth Hospital as a result of complications from cancer. A longtime Island resident, she died while being held in the arms of her beloved husband, Marvin “Buddy” Wyatt.
Pat was born in Concord, N.H., to Geraldine Sheehy and Rene Boisvert. She attended college in Boston and worked as an executive legal secretary for many years there. In Edgartown, she worked for Richard McCarron before taking over the ArtCliff Diner. The legendary “round table” would often find the regulars discussing everything from fishing to politics as well as Island gossip. Pat was a welcoming wit behind the counter.
After she sold the diner, Pat went to work for Cape Air as a customer service agent which not only let her indulge in her love of travel but also gave her the love of her life, Buddy. Pat enjoyed yard sales, reading, decorating, swimming, and just last summer took up sailing and long-boat rowing. She was a curious person who was always interested in learning new things. In recent years she was very active as the first lady of the Marine Air Traffic Control Association (MATCA) and was a member of the benevolent committee at the Holy Ghost Association. Her amusing anecdotes and easy laugh along with her ease of conversation never failed to make those around her smile.
She was predeceased by her parents, Geraldine and Maurice Kimball (stepfather), her father, Rene, and her sister Kathleen Boisvert. She is survived by her husband, her sister Ann Kimball Brehm of Spofford, N.H., and her brother, Timothy Boisvert of Orange, N.J.; stepchildren Stefanie Jo Hubert of Middletown, N.Y., and Joylynn Marie Coronado of Buffalo, N.Y., along with three wonderful grandchildren, Cole Hubert, Ryan Coronado, Madelyn Coronado, a nephew Dieter Brehm and nieces Emily and Jessica Brehm.
A visitation will be held on Saturday April 20, 3–5 pm in the Chapman Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, Edgartown Road, Oak Bluffs. Following the visitation a celebration of life will be held at the home of Denys and Marilyn Wortman at 231 Hines Point, Vineyard Haven.
In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society in Pat’s name, 5 Manley St, West Bridgewater, MA 02379, cancer.org. Please visit ccgfuneralhome.com for online guest book and information.
