Patricia ‘Pat’ Pollich

HAMPSTEAD — Patricia “Pat” Pollich, 73, passed away Wednesday, June 23, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.

Pat was born in Washington, D.C., and lived in Northern Virginia for most of her life. She was educated in Virginia Catholic schools and later received her R.N. Degree from NOVA community college. Pat married the love of her life, Gardiner, in August 1968. Pat and Gardy raised their three children in the Northern Virginia area and retired to Hampstead in 2015 to be closer to family and beaches they so loved.

Ever the caretaker and always passionate about those in need, Pat spent most of her career in gerontology, tending compassionately and lovingly to the elderly. Living by example, Pat touched the lives of all around her by influencing all of us to love more, give more, and be better people. Comments about the fierce loyalty our family shares with each other and our friends is commonplace and true. She has always been an amazing example to all of us, especially to her children and grandchildren.

Pat is survived by her children, Nichole Feinsot, and her husband, Andy, John Pollich, and his wife, Devon, Jennifer Henriques, and her husband, Mike; five grandchildren, Lucy, Calvin, Benjamin, Nathan and Jackson; siblings, Michael Mahoney, and his wife, Rita, Sharon Mahoney, Colleen Moore, and her husband, Ralph; as well as a large family of cousins, nieces and nephews; and aunt, Lucille Capellio. Most importantly, Pat leaves behind the love of her life and best friend of 53 years, Gardiner, whose teamwork and commitment were revered by all who knew them.
