It is with profound sadness that the family of Patricia A. Donovan (née Kilkenny) announces her passing on June 20,2023 on Long Island, NY. She was 84 years old.


Patricia was the beloved wife of Joseph G. Donovan for 59 years and the devoted mother of Joseph, Erin Mone (née Donovan) and Ryan. Loving mother-in-law of Patricia Donovan, Christopher Mone and Elisabeth Donovan and grandmother to her 11 adoring grandchildren that were the light of her life.

Pat was born and raised in the Bronx, NY and has been lovingly known as “Tisha from the Bronx,”  where she attended Our Lady of Solace Roman Catholic School and St. Helena's High School.


Pat and Joe met at an Irish American dance and with a shared love of their Irish heritage, they opened and operated Donovan’s Pub in Woodside, NY and Donovan’s of Bayside in Bayside, NY, for over 50 years. Pat was forever grateful to the many customers and employees who helped to make these popular gathering places a success.


Pat and her husband Joe, raised their family in Manhasset and Westhampton Beach, NY before retiring. Afterwards they also enjoyed many happy years in Jupiter, Florida.

She was known for her deep faith, her kind and understanding heart, her sense of humor, her beautiful singing voice, her love of Irish music, her intelligence, her wise advice, her keen bridge skills and her deep commitment to friends and family.


The entire family would like to thank everyone for their outpouring of prayers and support.
