Patty  L. McGowan, 91 years old, of Newport, passed away Tuesday, July 7, 2020. She was born July 23, 1928 in Millerstown to Willaim P. and Ethel (Johnson) Meloy. She was raised and went to school in Old Ferry, and Newport. After graduation she married her childhood sweetheart, James McGowan of Millerstown. Due to his military career, they lived many places in the U.S. and Germany, before retiring home to PA.
  Both Patty and Jim enjoyed people, especially family and children even more especially. She is survived by her three children, Connie McGowan of Sacramento, CA, James L McGowan of Tampa,FL and Timothy E. McGowan of Millerstown and grandchildren, Hallie, Drew (Kim), Blake, Ian, Samuel, Emily and Annelise. She was preceded in death by her husband, James; brother, Thomas Meloy and Sister, Opal Meloy.

She worked briefly for Newberry's in 1944, Snap on Pliers in 1945-46 and for Shifers in 1971-73. Her main priority was raising her children. "Wherever Daddy was, was home- and as long as we were together we were family."
 Her unwavering love, and continual prayers for her family will be missed, but we know she is home with her Lord- and with her James.
