In memory of Patsy McCleish

Our deepest sympathies go out to Mandy and her sisters following the passing yesterday of their mother, Patricia Mary McCleish. Patsy was a loving mother and guiding example of strength throughout her many years of recurrent, metastatic cancer. Her positive attitude and love of life were an example to everyone who met her. Patsy's services will be held 1pm on Saturday February 14th at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 4201 De Zavala Rd, San Antonio. There will be a small gathering of family and friends at Mandy's home following the services.

The family asks that in place of flowers that a donation be made in her honor to the American Cancer Society to benefit research for lung or liver cancer.

Our hearts go out to Mandy and her sisters, Nicole Quirk and Allison McCleish, in this saddening time.
