Patricia A. (Niemczyk) Smith, 62, passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 24, 2021, in her Muhlenberg Township home, surrounded by her loving family, following a 13-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Affectionately known as “Queen Patty,” she was a daughter of the late Theodore and Janice (Frantz) Niemczyk, and the loving wife of Kevin M. Smith.

Patty had an incredible zest for life, and it showed in everything she did. From the fragrance counter where she worked at Boscov’s, to the many beach trips she took with her family and close friends, Patty was always the life of the party. The consummate “Social Butterfly,” she loved making friends wherever she went, and to know her for just a moment, you were her friend for life. She especially loved the summertime, and spent many hours laughing on the beach and by the pool. She will be dearly missed.

In addition to her husband, Patty is survived by their two daughters who she greatly cherished: Lauren, wife of Stephen Kirby, Sinking Spring, and Taryn, girlfriend of Gerard Burns, Reading; as well as her brother Ted Niemczyk, husband of Debra Goodman, sisters Marylee Fontana, wife of Paul, and Diana Wilson, wife of Oliver, and her precious “cuddledog” Coral.

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, services for Patty are private at the convenience of her family. The public is invited to livestream her services by going to Click on Patty’s obituary, click on Photos & Videos, and then click on Watch Webcast.

When I was 15 we were next door neighbors. We had a lot of fun that one year & was happy to find you on FB. I m just sorry we didn’t get to meet face to face again to talk of old times.
I remember her as happy & fun. So sorry for her family’s loss.

For the entire Niemczyk/Smith family ...from the long time old neighbors of West Douglass St., we had the pleasure of living next door to a very special, one-of-a-kind family..."The Niemczyk's"....observed, learned, loved, and cherished all time being in the company of them. Patty was the 'baby' and will always have a very special place in my heart. I remember when she was brought home from the hospital, and she was a real life "baby doll" ...loved having a memory of pushing her in her carriage when I got my turn, to do so....she was, out-of-the-womb, a happy, bubbly, sweetheart, always smiling. Kind.....lovely....beautiful, inside and out, verily. She will be so missed by her own loving family and everyone that had the pleasure of knowing her. Much love to her daughters and husband. God bless.
Sincerely loving, Nancy Kutz Gorman and family

The Martello family is saddened to hear of Patti's passing. She was part of our family by way of deep, longstanding friendships with our cousins (Noeckers). She was funny, positive, and brave and truly a light to many. We wish her family peace through what we know are countless beautiful memories of a beautiful and sweet woman.
