Patricia Ann Najeway
1930 - 2022 (age 91)

Patricia Ann Najeway (Pat) died on Sunday, Feb. 20, 2022. She was born April 26, 1930 in Akron, to Ann and John Long. She was a student at St. Sebastian, Our Lady of the Elms and Kent State University, where she was the first female editor-in-chief of the Kent Stater.

Pat with her husband, Stan, raised five children and her life was busy orchestrating schooling, church and sports. Pat's love of literature was life-long and she could often be found buried in a book. She was an active, life-long member of the Christ Child Society where she used her talents of art, design and quilting. Pat's role in the St. Sebastian Little Flower Garden Club started as a child (where she accompanied her mom to meetings) and continued for more than 60 years.

Pat is survived by Stan, her husband of 66 years, five children: Stan, Jr. (Sharon), Anne Vainer (Jim Grant). Stephen, Cecelia and John (Colleen Kipfstuhl), and grandchildren: Christopher and Madison. She also leaves behind her siblings: Theodore Long, Nancy Mondozzi and William (Margaret) Long, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother John.

A Funeral Mass will take place at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Feb, 24 at St. Sebastian Catholic Church. Calling hours will be one hour before the funeral mass. Masks are required.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Christ Child Society of Akron.
