FRAMINGHAM: Patricia M. (Cragin) Villa, 84, a lifelong resident of Framingham, passed away peacefully Wed. August 14, 2019. She was the wife of the late Dominic R. Villa who passed in 2016.

Born in Framingham, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Marie (Comerford) Cragin. She grew up and raised her family in Framingham. After raising her family, she worked in the healthcare industry for 20 years before her retirement in 2004. After her retirement she enjoyed going shopping with her sister, cousins and friends. She was always looking for a bargain and she found plenty. She was a longtime member of the Framingham Lodge of Elks Emblem Club and a member of the Framingham Heart Study.

She is survived by eight sons and daughters-in-law: Charles and Sharon, Donald and Amelia, John and Kathy, Paul and Nancy, Walter and Joanne, William Villa and his fiancée Patricia Bethoney, Mark and Karen, and Bernard Villa and his partner Jane Tognacci. She also leaves her brother Ed Cragin and his wife Lois. She was the sister of the late Walter Cragin and Lillian Gould. Pat enjoyed her time with all her children, 30 grandchildren and 54 great grandchildren. She also leaves several nieces and nephews and her adopted daughter Linda Ferris.

Patsy was a loving mother that taught her children the values of life, to work hard and respect others. She was always there to lend a hand to anyone in need. We will forever cherish the lessons and memories that she gave all of us. "Love you Ma, see you soon."

Relatives and friends are invited to attend visiting hours Sunday Aug. 18 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Boyle Bros. Funeral Home, 173 Union Ave., Framingham.

There was never a doubt how much our mother loved her 8 sons !! She was fiercely protective of us & would defend us at any costs!! In her last days with us, she made sure to tell each and everyone of us how much she did love us ❤️. Thank You all for the outpouring of support through the last several days.
Mother, we will miss you !!
Rest In Peace

Charlie, Trish and all the family, I’m so sorry. I didn’t know your Mom and grandmother, but she must have been a strong and at the same time sweet lady.
