Surrounded by family and friends and after a beautiful life of 77 years, Patricia
“Pat” Rapone Thompson died peacefully in her sleep on November 13, 2022, in
Port Orange, Florida, following a short illness.
Pat was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 18, 1945, the only girl in a
family of 6 children. She grew up a devout Catholic and graduated from St.
Hubert’s School for Girls. She married and eventually relocated with her husband
and family to the Daytona Beach area in 1969.
Pat had the distinction of excelling in two careers, one legal and one medical. She
was a legal secretary and paralegal for many years and worked for the Haas,
Boehm, & Brown law firm in Daytona Beach. In her late forties, Pat decided to
return to college, receiving her BSN degree at age 50. Pat then embarked on a
nearly 20 year career in nursing, including 15 especially meaningful years with
Halifax Hospice.
Pat always retained and treasured her Philadelphia roots which she routinely
displayed in her puckish wit, persistence, and dedication to the Eagles. She was
extremely proud of her family, and they were equally proud of her. Pat was
predeceased by her brother Charlie Friend and will be deeply missed by her
surviving siblings Edmund Rapone, Richie Friend, George Friend, and David Friend.
Pat’s immeasurable loss will be felt by her three children, Patrice (Earl) Scott,
Heather (Alessandro) De Paolis and Frank (Rachel) Thompson, and her
grandchildren, Kaemon and Kaedin Scott, Leonardo and Stefano De Paolis, and
Caleb, Rhiannon, and Avery Thompson, who were the pride and joy of Meme’s
life. The legacy of Pat’s kind spirit, her unconditional love, and her zest for life will
persevere in the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know her.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Halifax Hospice of
Port Orange, a cause near and dear to Pat.
To commemorate and honor Pat Thompson, a Celebration of Life will be held on
December 17th, 2022 from 4-7 p.m. at the Wilbur Boathouse.

    Honestly, I only met Pat once or twice a few times at most, but I have to say I always tell everyone, you have children to change the world, to make the world a better place, and I have to say because I know Patrice pretty well, she did an awfully good job and left a beautiful mark on this world.
