Patricia Abbey Obituary

Patricia Abbey, age 88, passed away peacefully on December 27, 2023 in Southampton, after a long battle with Alzheimer's. She led a very happy, active life filled with family, friends and many activities such as country dancing, church and teaching during her 60+ years in Southampton. 

She is survived by her daughter, Peggy Helstowski nee Keane of East Hampton, NY, her son Thomas Keane of Southampton, NY and son Jonathan Keane of Southampton, NY. 

She cherished seeing her grandchildren flourish throughout their lives- Rachael Silvey, Nicole Keane, Brenden Mott, Kevin Mott and Shannon Keane. Patricia loved her role as Nana. 

Patricia was preceded in death by her twin sister, Winifred Gruss, her husband Lonnie Abbey, her son Patrick Keane and stepson Tony Abbey.

She leaves behind a legacy of love and wisdom that no one could match. She enjoyed being a math teacher and she ran a Kunmon Center for many years in Southampton. 

A Memorial Mass will be planned in the future.
