Her parents were William McCorry and Dorothy (Carter) McCorry, both from Dannemora. She is predeceased by her father, and her son, Robert J. Varney.
Patty was married to her husband, Todd Parrotte, for 20 years. They were private people and had simple interests such as yard sales and listening to music together. They had visions of growing old together that will forever remain in Todd's heart. Together they fought her health issues, relying one each other for support.
Patty is survived by her mother and her three siblings: Michael McCorry and his wife, Peggy; Kathleen Tetreault and her husband, Shawn; and Colleen McCorry.
Patty was a mother, first and foremost.

Patty had many friends and was liked by all who met her. She could talk on the phone for hours, and always enjoyed chatting over a cup of coffee. Her best friend was her cousin, Julie Tamer. Patty loved watching old black-and-white movies, and always had the television on TVLand. She gave herself beautiful manicures and her nails always looked perfect. She enjoyed cooking for her family, and surprising them with homemade desserts.
Patty was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in November of 2016.
Although Patty will be missed more than words can say, we must always remember that she is no longer suffering. There is a sense of peace within the family because we know that she is not alone. Her son, Robert, was waiting for her. The image of their reunion is a joyful thought to hold on to in the sorrowful days ahead. Patty's undying spirit and her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew her and loved her.
