Dover, NH – Patricia “Patty” Helen (DesHarnais) McNally, 62, recently passed away peacefully after a prolonged illness while in the care of her beloved son, Ryan. She resided with him over the past four years at his home in Dover and was grateful to spend her time with him during that period.
Born in Somersworth, NH, November 4, 1958, she was the daughter of the late Henry “Whitey” and Helen (Mone) DesHarnais and was a graduate of Somersworth High School. She attended McIntosh College in Dover, NH graduating with an Associates’ Degree in Accounting.
Patty loved to relax by knitting mittens, hats and gloves, crocheting beautiful comforting afghans and creating impressive needlepoint artwork. She enjoyed her friends at meet-ups and especially treasured her long-time childhood friend Marla (Countryman) Earl.
She is survived by her son Ryan McNally, brothers Ronald DesHarnais and Dennis DesHarnais, nephews Nick Bronson and Jeffrey DesHarnais, nieces Christina DesHarnais and Karen DesHarnais.
Calling hours are not being offered. A funeral Mass will be held at St. Ignatious (St. Martin’s) Church on 120 Maple Street in Somersworth. Mass will be on June 3, 2021 at 11:00 am followed by a gathering of friends and family for a graveside burial at Holy Trinity Cemetery. A repast (reception) will be held following the burial at her son’s residence at 2 Wingate Lane in Dover, NH.
