Patricia Ann Schoonmaker “Pat” of Bloomingburg, NY, lost her battle with lung cancer Saturday, April 16, 2022. Born on June 19, 1947 near the Great Sacandaga Reservoir in Broadalbin, NY. She was the daughter of Russell and Anna Hinkle.
After graduating high school Pat attended school in Albany for Key Punch and Verifying and worked for Ma Bell. After moving to this area, Pat was employed at the Grand Union in Napanoch for 21 years. She had excellent work ethics and advanced to manager in several departments. More recently she was employed at Kohl’s Warehouse where she worked with her friends Cathy and Delores who made working a joy.
Pat was an avid gardener and received compliments from many a passerby. Family always came first; she was there for support and helped in any way possible. She loved to cook for all occasions and always had a large stock of ingredients on hand.
She is survived by her husband John; daughters, Lori Ardizzone (Jimmy Conklin), Pam Kresser (Bill), Gretchen Ardizzone (Jonathan Verderber); grandchildren, Shelby, Abigail and Emerson; great- granddaughter, Rylie Ann; siblings, Russell Hinkle (Candice), Marilyn Negrich (George), Barbara Dennie (Stephen) and Richard “Rick” Hinkle.
