WORCESTER: Patricia M. (McIntyre) Knight, 55, of Fales Street, passed away peacefully in her home Friday, February 3rd, surrounded by her family and closest friends after bravely battling cancer.
Trisha will be deeply missed by her four daughters; Victoria L. Knight and her fiancé James Honkala, Montana V. Onacki and her husband Tom, Isabella M. Dupuis and her husband Brad, and Gabriella L. Knight, as well as her husband Christopher J. Knight, her parents Malcolm A. and Marilyn J. (Wilson) McIntyre, her three sisters; Debbie Ward, Suzanne Parisi and her husband Chuck, and Marilyn Dempsey, two grandsons; Jackson and Carter Honkala, and many nieces and nephews she adored. She was predeceased by two brothers; Michael and Kenneth McIntyre.
Patricia was born in Malden and graduated from Marlborough High School. She continued her education at Fitchburg State University and graduated with honors as a registered nurse, all while raising four wild girls. She was a labor and delivery nurse for 23 years at UMass Memorial Hospital, and also worked as a S.A.N.E nurse (sexual assault nurse examiner.) Trisha enjoyed hosting family dinners, gardening, and most of all, the beach. She was happiest when surrounded by family and friends, and especially loved being a mimi to her beloved grand babies. Our superwoman will be forever missed.
