Obituary of Patricia Ann "Patty" Rubera
Patricia Ann “Patty” Rubera, 45, of Walton passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, November 7, 2019 following a brief illness.
Born June 7, 1974 in Walton, she was the daughter of the late Clifford and Paulette Campbell Lezer.
Patty had a great love for her friends and family and cherished every moment she spent with them. She enjoyed writing poetry, jamming out to the music of The Doors, was an avid Bingo player always looking forward to Thursday nights and was a longtime member of the Walton Grange.
Survivors include her sons Tyler Rubera of Hamden and Nathaniel Rubera of Walton; sisters Ann Lezer of Walton and Jennifer Garcia of Walton; brother in law John Garcia of Walton; significant other Daniel “DJ” Wood of Walton; father of her boys Mark Rubera of Hancock; mother in law Eva “cookie” Rubera and Richard Wormuth; nephew Dakota Gray; niece Mackenize Gray; niece Kimberly Garcia and nephew John Garcia; great niece and nephew Jordynn Boecke and Korben Garcia and; cousins Spike Walke, Jackie and David Brown and Dorothy Farnsworth and beloved pets Fozy and Princess.
Patty had a free spirit. She loved with all she had and warmed the lives of those around her. She was a strong woman who stood up for what she believed. Who was also not afraid to get out on the dance floor and shake her tail feathers. Patty was also a published poet. She wrote often and with heart. Her inspiration came from her everyday life, and especially Jim Morrison of The Doors. Who we’re sure has a restraining order against her up in heaven based off of how she talked about him. We won’t go into detail for there may be young eyes and ears. Patty taught us how to love truly and accept people for who they are, even if they are a little weird. At the risk of being cliché this isn’t goodbye, its we’ll see you later. In the meantime, dance like no one’s looking, embrace the love around you, laugh till it hurts, and most importantly, you’re never too old to dress up for Halloween.
