May 31, 1938 - October 7, 2020
Patricia Ann Sexton (“Pat”) passed away peacefully at age 82, at her home in Milton, Delaware on October 7, 2020, in the loving embrace of her family. Born in Middletown, New York on May 31, 1938, Pat was the daughter of Anthony L. Sienko and Lydia Horak Sienko. She is survived by her children, Toni (Brett), Lisa (Delbert) and Matthew, and grandchildren: Conrad, Alexandra, David, Olivia, Alden, Mia, Isabella and Isaiah. She was an avid learner, earning an AS degree in Nursing from Orange Community College, BS and MS degrees in nursing from Binghamton University and Certification as a Nurse Practitioner from Syracuse University. Her nursing career spanned nearly forty years, during which she worked in a variety of hospitals and later as a public health nurse in Binghamton, New York. She also taught nursing at Broome Community College in Binghamton. After retiring to Delaware, Pat continued to work as a public health nurse and joined the Delaware Medical Reserve Corp. Her passions beyond nursing included drawing and painting, folk dancing and gardening. Her drawings and paintings earned local awards and she danced for countless hours with the Roberson Folk Dancers in Binghamton. A skilled gardener, she completed the training to become a Delaware Master Gardener and enjoyed helping others to learn about gardening as well as tending to her own beautiful gardens. She earned the Delaware Lifetime Master Gardener Award from the Kent and Sussex Counties Master Gardeners. She was a caring friend, mother, and grandmother who delighted in spending time with her grandchildren. Her kindness, compassion and sense of humor touched many lives. She will be missed by all who knew her. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no services at this time. The family hopes to have a celebration of life in December, if the pandemic permits.
