Patrica's Story

Text size

age 69, of Cambridge, Mass., died after a long bout with cancer on Nov. 30, 2017. Pat was born on Dec. 22, 1947, in Beekmantown, N.Y., and was raised by her late parents, Daniel P. and Virginia A. Noonan, on a dairy farm close to the Quebec border, along with six siblings. She moved to New York City in 1967, where she met her lifetime companion, Martin Jukovsky; they married in 1969, and their relationship would last 50 years. Pat retired in 2010 from a 19-year career as a proofreader and then web designer at the Massachusetts Medical Society in Waltham, Mass. She then went on to teach English as an adjunct professor at Middlesex Community College in Lowell. The Jukovskys' purple house in Cambridge, which they moved into in 1998, became a gathering place and refuge for their daughters' classmates and friends. Pat was famous among them for her pizza and mac-and-cheese. Pat is survived by her husband Martin Jukovsky; daughters Hannah Jukovsky, Elizabeth Jukovsky, Juliet Pratt, and Caroline Madison; sons Peter Jukovsky and Michael Madison; granddaughters Niah Pratt and Nyah Madison Hill; grandson Ty Madison Hill; sisters Mary Noonan Fredette, Kay Noonan Leonard, and Genevieve Noonan; honorary daughter Jesika Clerge; and many others who considered Pat a "second mom." Pat's burial service at Cambridge Cemetery on December 5 drew seventy people, many of whom spoke about her positive effect on their lives.
