Patricia A. Fortuner

Frankfort - Pat (Mimi) Fortuner - passed into heaven on Friday, July 12, 2019 surrounded by her beloved family. She was the sixth child of the late Glenn and Lois Nichols Mower, born in Ilion, NY on November 16, 1942.

Pat attended Frankfort Schuyler Central Schools and graduated from Utica School of Commerce in 1972. She was a member of 182 Teamsters Union and previously employed by Dairylea, Associated Textiles and The Masonic Home in Utica, NY. She then finished her career as a resident counselor at United Cerebral Palsy where she was a cherished advocate for the residents. Mimi always went above and beyond for those she loved. She took pride in the fact of how incredibly close and united our family is.

Mimi was the life of the party and self-expressed to the fullest. She enjoyed being on the beach, relaxing in nature, humming birds, and playing Yahtzee. She had a special admiration for Whoopi Goldberg.

Pat is survived by her loving children, Lee Ann Roberts-Woolever and her husband, Michael, Richard E. Roberts Jr. and his wife, Nicole, Mark S. Roberts and his wife, Kim, Michael J.

Mimi had a special place in her heart for her tuxedo-cat, Suzie. Pat is also survived by her siblings, George Mower, Philip and his wife, Patricia Mower, Margaret (Peg) Thuener, Edna and her husband, Richard Wasyleski, Jack and his wife, Evelyn Mower, Charles and his wife, Terry Mower and her sister-in-law Mary Mower and several special nieces, nephews and cousins.  She was predeceased by her brothers, Kenneth Mower and William Mower; grandson, Ryan Roberts; nephew, Jim Jacobs; niece, Laura Penree, brother-in-law Otto Thuener, sister-in-law Gudrun Mower and her former husbands, Richard E.
