Patricia M. Isackson, age 84, of Elgin, passed away August 2, 2019 at Rosewood Care Center of Elgin. She was born December 20, 1934 in Berwyn, IL to her loving parents, Stanley Zaworski O’Neil and Mary O’Neil (Kadlec).

Patricia worked at Sears and, in her later years, for the Public Defender of Kane County. She was a hard worker and colleagues always appreciated her “stocked up” desk with goodies to share.

She met the love of her life, Richard Isackson, while out dancing, and the two married in 1979.

Patricia will be remembered for her wonderful laugh.  She enjoyed shopping and doting on her beloved dog, Gracie. Her favorite outings were dinner with family, especially enjoying pizza with her grandkids.  She loved to travel anywhere that had a beach.

Patricia was preceded in death by her sister, Dolly, and her brother, Buddy.

Patricia is survived by her dear husband, Richard Isackson; children Debra Junod, James Scorzo and Chris (Susan) Scorzo; siblings Marianne Higgins, Karen Gonsior, and Stan Zaworski; grandchildren Tiffanie Begley, Valerie Scorzo, Lacey Collingbourne, Lauren Ciampi, and Leanne Serafin; great-grandchildren, Madi, Macie, and Maddox Collingbourne, Gianna, Vincent, Miliania and Antonia Ciampi, and Andrew Serafin; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
