Born to Charles Thomas Francis Haviland and Mary Elizabeth Haviland in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on July 25, 1947, Pat graduated from Phillipsburg Catholic High School in the Class of 1966 with dear classmates who have remained lifelong friends. She retired from ITT Sheraton after many successful years in industrial sales. Pat will be remembered fondly for her keen intellect, sharp wit, and loving personality.
Pat was a devoted contributor to the Easton community. She served as president of the Easton Heritage Alliance, which guided the $1.2 million restoration and reopening of the Bachmann Publick House, a stone tavern built in 1753 at what is today the corner of Second and Northampton Streets.
Pat also served as chairwoman of the Historic Easton House Tour Committee for over twenty years. In partnership with the Easton Main Street Initiative, the Committee holds an annual house tour run entirely by unpaid volunteers to provide funds for the preservation of historic buildings and for the continuation of Easton cultural events.
Above all, Pat was a devoted, beloved sister and aunt. She is survived by her sisters Rosemary Pugliese (husband Nicholas Pugliese) and Diane Haviland (husband G. Kennedy Greene) and brothers Thomas Haviland (wife Ann Molesevich) and Robert Haviland. She remains treasured by her nieces Nicole Tipton, Danielle Pugliese, Lauren Russell-Wood, Shannon Raymond, and nephew Christian Mascho, as well as grandnieces and grandnephews, Karrigan Russell-Wood, Sean Tipton, Anderson Marques, Haviland Russell-Wood, Anna Tipton, Kate Patricia Tipton, Poppy Russell-Wood, Pennant Russell-Wood, and Orion Mascho.
