Patrice (McKane) Squillante, 61, of West Mountain Road died Wednesday 6/3/21 at home. She was born in Paterson, NJ on December 16, 1959, the daughter of James and Marie (Zaccaro) McKane. She attended local schools in New Jersey and was a graduate of Kinnelon High School. Patrice continued her education, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree from Ramapo State College in New Jersey.
She was a certified public accountant and had worked for Melanson passionately for over 30 years.
Patrice was a die hard Patriots fan, a rock and country music lover, and always on the hunt for great new restaurants. In her free time she enjoyed countless concerts with her daughter, and enlisted her son to take her to all his favorite restaurants in NYC. And, of course, on Sundays she was always found cheering on( or cursing) the Patriots. Patrice also loved the beach and spent many summers vacationing in Cape May, NJ with her family.
Besides her husband Frank Squillante, Patrice leaves a daughter, Elise Squillante of East Providence, RI; a son, Andrew Squillante of New York City, NY; her parents, James and Marie McKane of Paterson, NJ; and a sister, Maria Fox of Port Jervis, NY.
A memorial service will be held at 4pm at the Kostanski Funeral Home, 1 Kostanski Square, Turners Falls. A calling hour will be from 3pm until the service time.
