Patricia Mazella Obituary

Patricia was born in Dulwich England in 1931, the youngest of Richard and Edith "Edie" Locatelli's (nee Norton Wight) 6 children. As a young child 3 of her brothers went to serve in the Second World War, and only one returned. The air raids that were a constant in London, drove the family out to the countryside. The war years with their horrors and personal family loss, to a great extent reinforced the ‘Family Above All' ideology which guided her through life. On most family get-togethers she would toast "La Famiglia' - and she really meant it! In England, Patricia met and married a young barrister named Geoffrey Roger Boon from St Kitts and moved there for about 4 years. She had a son, Richard, with whom she returned to England after realizing that life in the tropics was not as fulfilling as hoped for. After the war years ended and she finished her education, Patricia took the opportunity to travel, then settled in Paris, where her English beauty paved the way for modeling opportunities. There she made great friends and learned to speak French fluently. While in France Patricia met a John Mazella, a young doctor serving in the US Airforce in France at the time. They fell in love and married in 1961 in England where their unity of more than 50 years unfolded. They then came to live in New York City, and finally at their beloved Cottage Farm. The arrival of their two children Francesca and Jonathan provided great joy and they were both raised with the firm but loving philosophy that basically said - ‘standards matter'. Patricia enjoyed life to its fullest and made the most of being with family and great friends. She loved to share her gift of creating fine cuisine, (she was Cordon Bleu trained), with some of John's fine wine collection. A perfect match, as Patricia and John were, too. Her love of animals was unparalleled. She was deeply rooted in the local horse community and an avid dog and cat lover. Our dear mother wore her age flawlessly. Patricia was regularly complimented on her ageless skin and bright manner which made us believe she would live forever. After only a year of separation, she has now gone to join her soul-mate, John, in the great hereafter The sudden loss of Patricia has been a terrible shock to her 3 children, other family members, and to her close friends whose companionship was truly treasured by Patricia.
