Patricia Sue Frabasilio

Memorial services will take place Friday for Patricia Sue “Patty” Frabasilio, who died March 3, 2005, at Washoe Medical Center, Reno, Nev. She was 57.

Patty was born March 1, 1948, in Oklahoma City, Okla., to James Malcolm and Dorothy Poole, the youngest of three daughters. She attended Will Rogers Schools and later moved to Anaheim, Calif., and attended schools there. It was there that she met the love of her life and husband of 39 years, Danny Frabasilio. They were married Aug. 20, 1965, and lived as newlyweds from that moment on. Following the birth of their sons, James Daniel and Dean Charles, they moved to Oklahoma City. Patty was employed with Moore Public Schools as a receptionist for 15 years, and she and her sister, Barbara, established Royal Clean-Up 25 years ago.

She had lived in South Lake Tahoe off and on over the past 40 years and had been a permanent resident for the past seven years. A homemaker, Pat loved the mountains and hiking. She attended Graceway Baptist Church in Oklahoma City as well as Snowcross Baptist Church in South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Community Church in Stateline. Pat loved people, her Lord, and her husband. She blessed and greatly enriched the lives of those she touched. She will be missed, but will live forever in the hearts of those who loved her.

She is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Dan Frabasilio of South Lake Tahoe; sons, Jim and Dean of Oklahoma City; grandchildren, Ryan and Felicia of Lexington, Okla., and Bo and Chase of Oklahoma City; sister, Barbara Lowry of Oklahoma City; father-in-law, Ronnie Frabasilio of Buena Park, Calif.; brothers-in-law, Orlando Moses of Oklahoma City and Bobby Frabasilio of Carson City, Nev.; many nieces and nephews and a host of friends and family. She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Mickey Moses; and brother-in-law, Jim Lowry.

Memorial services will begin at 11 a.m. March 18 at Tahoe Community Church, 140 Daggett Way, Stateline, Nev.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Patricia Frabasilio Memorial Fund at El Dorado Savings Bank, South Lake Tahoe.
