Patricia M. (Winters) Duquette

May 24, 1930 ~ February 17, 2022 (age 91)


Patricia Mary (Winters) Duquette, 91, of Longmeadow passed away on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at Mercy Medical Center, spending her final days surrounded by her family.  Born and raised in Springfield, she was the daughter of the late John E. “Gus” and Margaret E. (O’Donnell) Winters and graduated from Cathedral High School in 1947 where she met her future husband, Bob.  Pat was a realtor in the Springfield area for over 46 years.  For many of those years, she was a leading sales producer and proudly worked for Stearns & Yerrall Inc., DeWolfe Cos., and Coldwell Banker.  Later in life and well after her retirement from real estate, she would often be approached out and about by people she may not immediately have recognized, but who were quick to tell her that she had sold them their home years prior.  This sort of occurrence was common and brought her much joy. Pat’s love of beautiful homes and architectural design extended beyond her work as she happily served on both the Springfield and Longmeadow Historic Commissions.  She was predeceased by her loving husband of 65 years, Robert J. Duquette and her younger brother, John E. Winters.  She leaves three sons: Robert J. Jr. and his wife Christine of North Attleborough, Timothy J. and his wife Kathleen of Longmeadow, and Dennis P. and his partner Melvin Isaia of Springfield.  She also leaves five grandchildren: Bobby and his wife Heather, Daniel, Brendan, Christopher and Katie Duquette; a great granddaughter, Quinn Duquette and a great grandson, James Duquette, along with several nieces and nephews. Nothing in this life mattered more to Pat than her Catholic faith and her love of and devotion to her family, and she instilled these values as well as the value of hard work in her children.  The family would like to extend its heartfelt appreciation to the team at Mercy Life and Mercy Medical Center for the incredible care they provided to Pat throughout her final days.  Visitation will be held on Monday, February 21st  from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at Wilbraham Funeral Home, 2551 Boston Rd., Wilbraham. Family and friends may meet for Pat’s Funeral Mass on Tuesday at 10:00 AM at Sacred Heart Church, Springfield. Burial will be held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Sacred Heart Church, 395 Chestnut Street, Springfield MA, 01104.
