Patricia M. (O’Neil) Landers, 90, a longtime resident of Framingham, died Monday morning December 18, 2023 surrounded by her loved ones, after a period of declining health. Born in Boston, she was the daughter of the late Daniel & Jean (Montague) O’Neil, and the beloved wife of the late James R. Landers.

Patricia grew up in Watertown and was a graduate of Watertown High and St. Elizabeth’s School of Nursing in Brighton. She enjoyed a lengthy career as an RN at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Cape Cod Hospital, Newton Wellesley Hospital, and over 25 years at Bethany Healthcare as a night supervisor.

A devout catholic, Patricia’s faith was strong. She was a member of St. George Parish in Saxonville where she attended daily mass. She was an avid walker, going for walks up to three times a day often with her husband James trailing behind.

Patricia loved gardening, especially her prized roses. She always remained active from her garden to baking her famous rolls and blueberry bread. She cherished family gatherings and cookouts, and was proud of the fact she had six kids and would tell everyone who would listen.
