Obituary for Patricia "Patty" Ann Law

Patricia "Patty" Ann Law, a long-time resident of Milford and most recently, White Lake, passed away in the care of her family after battling pneumonia on Wednesday, October 12, 2011. She was 54 years old.

Born July 4, 1957 in Detroit, Michigan, Patty was one of six children born to parents John "Jack" and Jane (nee. Minock) Law.
Patty made her life in Milford where she dedicated her career to the Huron Valley School District as a bus driver. Patty touched many lives including her co-workers at Huron Valley Schools, the "special needs" children that she drove to and from school, the doctors and nurses that spent so much time with Patty, many friends, and family. She loved adventure, laughter, and having a good time. Her laugh was contagious.
Patty had a special place in her heart for animals. As a liver transplant recipient, Patty had little control of what life would bring and when her gift of life would be available. In acknowledging this reality and this vulnerability, Patty recognized a particular kinship with the animals she so adored. Patty's response to the perceived commonality was one of pure compassion--she provided for them exactly what others eventually would for her--the gift of life, care, and love.
Patty taught us all something very special: "We are all different and as such each of us will make choices in life that make us happy. We need to respect and celebrate the person that develops from these choices as they will touch our lives in a remarkable way."

Farm town will never be the same.

Patty was preceded in death by her nephew, Joey Cigna and special aunt, Mary Minock.
In addition to her loving daughter Shannon (Daniel Tindall) Scala, Patty is survived by her grandson Collin; parents John "Jack" & the late Jane Law; siblings Peggy (the late Patrick) Riley, Jack (Gerilyn) Law, Jayne Law Goebel, Carolyn (John) Cigna and Dave (Deanne) Law. Also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and dear friends, including her canine friends Jackson and Angelo.

A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, 1955 E. Commerce Rd., Milford, Monday, October 17 at 10 AM with Fr. Ron Anderson officiating. Burial Milford Memorial Cemetery. Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty, Milford, Saturday 5-9 PM and Sunday 2-9 PM with Rosary at 7 PM.
