06/04/1948 - 04/20/2023

Patricia Marie Yzzi, 74, of Yorktown, VA, passed away in the early morning hours of April 20th after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born in Delaware to Joseph and Gertrude Hurley. Patricia loved to learn and pursued her formal education in the fields of nursing and massage therapy. Massage was her passion. She found fulfillment in the treatment and prevention of physical pain.
Patricia married Ralph Yzzi on August 3rd , 1974 in Norristown, PA. After moving to Newport News, VA, she gave birth to her daughter, Heather.
Patricia was best known for her sharp wit, patriotism, and blunt personality. She socialized often and built many meaningful friendships. Her closest friend, Major Branch, was by her side until the end.
Patricia will be remembered for her strong will, sense of humor, and love of animals. A common phrase echoed by her friends was: “You always knew where you stood with Trish”.
She is survived by her ex-husband Ralph Yzzi, daughter Heather Yzzi, son-in-law Andrew Stephen, a grandchild who will be born in 7 months, sister-in-law Diane Hurley, and many nieces and nephews.
Patricia loved being a grandmother to two rabbits: Lyla and Edan Quinn.
Memorial services will be held at 3pm Wednesday, April 26, 2023 at Grace Episcopal Church, 111 Church Street, with Rev. Seldon M. Walker officiating.

Trish will be greatly missed on my daily and nightly walks of my dogs Lily and Princeton. They loved her like a grandma and laid under her on her porch while we talked about everything under the sun. So glad to be able to call you a dear friend. I can’t wait to see you again. Until then, prayers to your family and friends as we all heal. I’ll talk to you in my prayers. Rest in peace.

You were a dear lady and very sweet to me. I am just so sorry for all you had to deal with. No one deserves what you had to go through. Bless you and now we have another Angel in heaven to look down upon us and protect us.
