In Loving Memory of Patrica Maye Rubinetti (Fitzmaurice)
Patricia Rubinetti (Tricia) - amazing wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to so many - passed away surrounded by her loving family on November 15, 2023. She was 57 years young.
Born to Patricia and the late John Fitzmaurice, Tricia grew up in Bergenfield, creating lasting memories for all who knew her. She is survived by her husband John Rubinetti, daughter Brielle, sons John and Vinny, loyal dog Charlie, and granddogs: Peach and Nacho.
Loving sister to Jack, Bob, Maureen, Catherine and Eileen, and sister-in-law to Valerie, Pat, Jack, Michael, Joanne, Frank and Sandy. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Josephine Rubinetti and nieces and nephews: Sean, Nicole, Jaki, Dan, Erin, Meagan, Ian, Michael, Christopher, Michaela, Mia, Nicolette, Anthony, Michelle and Chelsea. And predeceased by her father-in-law Julius Rubinetti and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Tricia always said, “If I’m going through these cancer treatments to stay alive, I want to live my life.” Traveling the world and relaxing in her “happy place” at Cooler Beach with friends and family, she seized life and adventure, connecting deeply with everyone she met and spreading joy with her incredible smile and infectious laugh. Her heart and home were always open to everyone and full of life, good times, and amazing friends.
She wanted everyone to celebrate how she lived, not how she died.
You were as tough as they come Patricia Rubinetti. And you, my love, have earned a rest.
