Patricia J. “Pat” Prescott, 85, of Lansingburgh, beloved wife of the late Leo Prescott, peacefully entered into eternal life at her residence on Monday, March 11, 2024.

Pat’s first marriage to Forrest C. Davies of Centenary, S.C. produced six beloved children and ended in divorce, followed by her marriage to Leo Prescott. 


Pat was first and foremost a devoted wife, skilled home keeper and loving mother.  She also was employed at Woolworth & Co. in Hadley, MA as head of security, at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst dining services, and other well known retailers.


Pat loved being with her family above everything else. She was a lifelong devout Catholic and a woman of great faith. She was an active member of the Rensselaer County Senior Citizens Center in Troy and enjoyed the activities and trips which were offered  through the Center. She particularly enjoyed creating a warm and inviting home, celebrating her birthday parties and traveling.


Devoted mother of Cynthia Davies Cunha, Brian Davies (Elizabeth Williams), Sharon Davies, Sheila Davies, Stephen Prescott (Nancy Stoliker), the late Jeffrey Davies (Priscilla) and the late Douglas Davies, beloved sister of the late Marilyn Prescott, survived by uncle Robert Gorman, aunt Kathleen “Kay” Gorman Quillinan, 17 grandchildren,  numerous great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
