Patricia ‘Pat’ Prior Obituary

SAUGUS – Patricia ‘Pat’ Prior, 78, of Saugus, MA, passed away Sunday March 10, 2024. She was born August 14,1945, the daughter of Charles Maurice Kwaks and Edith C (Champi) Kwaks. Beloved sister (of Charles Kwaks of Oxford, CT) aunt, cousin, and friend.  

Pat fanatically loved her sports, and her favorite teams were the Celtics and Patriots. Pat could give you all the information on what any team was doing at the drop of a dime and could recite the latest records, scores, and trades.  Pat was full of life and had the gift of gab. Pat always had a positive attitude which was infectious to those around her. She loved to stay active by walking and doing aerobics. She cherished animals, especially dogs. 

But what she absolutely adored the most was spending time with her niece, Michelle (Kwaks) Healy.  Whether the two of them were shopping at Marshalls/TJ Maxx, food shopping at Trader Joe’s, spending countless hours at Ocean State Job Lot or hitting Burger King for a quick cheeseburger and fries. Pat always looked forward to the time she got to spend with Michelle and cherished each and every minute.
