WINSTED — Patricia “Patty” Ruth (Strattman) Nash, 61, wife of David A, Nash of Winsted, died at home Aug. 2, 2019, surrounded by her loving family, after a long illness. 

Patty was born Dec. 24, 1957, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., to Irving Samuel and Anne Francis(Hall) Strattman, but was raised by her loving grandparents, Harold B. and Mary E. Strattman in East Canaan. She graduated from Housatonic Valley Regional High School in 1975.

After graduation, Patty did a bit of traveling to different parts of the country. She also tried her hand at all kinds of jobs from mechanic to real estate and finally became a Certified Nursing Assistant, which she thoroughly enjoyed. 

She met her husband, Dave, in January 1993 and they married July 4, 2002. Her hobbies were helping Dave restore their house to its original splendor, and poetry, some of which has been published.
