Patricia Kustra Obituary

ROCKPORT – Ms. Patricia A. Kustra, 70, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, November 1st, 2023 at the Kaplan Family Hospice House.

Born in Holyoke, she was the daughter of the late Adolph S. and Rita A. (Cloutier) Kustra. Raised and educated in Chicopee, Patricia graduated from Cathedral High School and went on to further her studies at the University of Massachusetts. She was employed with the Good Harbor Fillet in Gloucester for many years as a quality assurance inspector before her retirement.

Patricia was extremely artistic, and loved expressing herself through crafts. She enjoyed sewing and painting throughout the years. Another passion of hers was equestrian sciences. She taught, trained, and rode horses - she could do it all. But most of all, her family was everything.

She is also survived by her brother, Lawrence Kustra and his wife, Ellen of Myrtle Beach, SC, and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Adolph and Rita (Cloutier) Kustra, she is preceded in death by her brother, Stanley Kustra and her beloved dog, Cozette.
