May 21, 1938 — January 4, 2023

Patricia Smyth (“Pat”), peacefully entered into God’s presence on January 4, 2023 while surrounded by her family. Pat was 84.

Pat was born Patricia Marie Dwyer on May 21, 1938 in Cincinnati to Thomas Ellsworth Dwyer and Anne Marie Tierney Dwyer. After graduating from St. Xavier Commercial School, Patricia began working as an Administrative Assistant, ultimately to become a Program Specialist for the Internal Revenue Service until her retirement in 2000.

On July 30, 1966, Pat married the love of her life, Donald (“Don”) Smyth at St. Bartholomew Church in Cincinnati. Pat and Don had four children, David, Ann, Donna and Jill. Pat was deeply committed to her family, constantly making time to visit them and to help with the care of her eleven grandchildren. Pat was also deeply committed to Christ and her faith, evident in her commitment to service, welcome, and hospitality to all she encountered.
