Patricia Talotta
April 24, 2018

TALOTTA, PATRICIA “PATSY” SINGER: Beloved Mother, Nana, and friend, passed away quietly surrounded by her family on April 24, 2018. She is survived by her three children: Jon Talotta (Elizabeth), Jan Bardin (Jeffrey), and Mary Anne Talotta, as well as her six granddaughters: Emily, Katherine, and Jessica Talotta of Arlington, VA, and Samantha, Alexa, and Julia Bardin of Demarest, NJ. Her sister was the late Suzanne Nolan. A Pittsburgh native, Patsy spent her entire life in Squirrel Hill. She attended Falk School, Winchester Thurston and Pennsylvania College for Women. In her early life, she taught nursery school at Rodef Shalom Temple, before becoming a devoted mother (and second mother to so many) and later enjoying a successful career in real estate at Howard Hanna. She was a gourmet cook and baker, skilled grower of orchids, Boston Terrier lover, and savvy player of cards and board games. She always treated friends like part of the family, her kitchen was always open and she was just a phone call or a text away—"keeping everyone in her loop.” Patsy touched countless lives with her unconditional love, warmth, and compassion. Services and Interment Private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Children’s Institute 1405 Shady Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 in memory of Patricia Talotta.
