Patricia “Pat” (Downey) Forand, 83, of Enfield, entered into eternal life on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at The Suffield House. She was the beloved wife of 25 years to the late Edwin J. Forand. Patricia was born on Feb. 2, 1937 in Springfield, MA, daughter of the late Lawrence and May (Welch) Downey, attended St. Joseph’s Grammar School, Enfield and graduated from Cathedral H.S., Springfield, MA.

I have been a friend of Pat's for over 50 years. First met her and ED IN Germany where we were assigned. While I am saddened by her loss, I am happy that she and Ed will be reunited in heaven. Wonderful friend. Vonnie Legore of Hanover, Pa.
