CLAYTON, N.Y.    Patricia A. Brayen, 62, of 912 Strawberry Lane, Clayton, passed away suddenly Friday, March 17, at her home.

Born April 7, 1954, in Alexandria Bay, the daughter of Frederick and Dorothy Graney Brayen of Fishers Landing, she graduated from Clayton Central in 1972, and attended Queens University, Canada, majoring in Theatre.

Patricia moved to New York City, and then to San Francisco, before returning to the 1000 Islands in 2008.

Patricia had a 30 year career in a series of positions within Law Firms in both NY and San Francisco. Patricia worked as a staff assistant in preparing Testimony and Litigation Briefs. She was very proud to work on the cases associated with the National Asbestos Litigation, while in California.

In addition to her work with the law, she was very active in the theatre. She produced an off Broadway play in New York City, and worked on a variety of projects and productions with her friends in San Francisco.

Patty will be best remembered for her love of animals, her generosity, a quick tongue, and her love of a good story retold.

She is survived by a brother, Michael and his wife Jeri, (Docteur), of Fishers Landing, two nieces, Rebecca, Mullica Hills, NJ, and Jami, Las Vegas, NV., and her many close friends in Clayton and San Francisco. A niece, Heather, died before her, in 2014.
