Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Patricia by adding your memories and photos.

Patricia Mary (McKinnon) Durgin, 68, of Sharon passed away peacefully at the South Shore Hospital on Friday July 26th 2019 after a period of failing health. Patricia was the loving wife for 43 years of the late Thomas Paul Durgin. Patti was born in Boston and attended Sharon High School and Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School. She proudly worked as a Dental Assistant for Henry J. Markowitz, DMD in Sharon for over 40 years. A resident of Sharon most of her life, Patti was someone that found a friend in most people she met. She was always graciously giving her time and love to those that needed it. An honored supporter of the Sharon VFW, she was known as someone to have in your corner. In typical fashion, always looking for the happy ending, she enjoyed watching the Hallmark Channel. Patti was known for her sunny disposition and got the most joy by spending time with her family and her friends.

Patricia is survived by her children: Michelle "Micki" Durgin Walsh and her husband Damien of Medford and Thomas W. Durgin of Sharon. Patti was predeceased by her parents Michael F. McKinnon, Sr. and Dorothy (Malcolm) of Boston. She was the sister of Denise Anthony of Attleboro, Dorothy Petroni and her husband Richard of Walpole, Kevin McKinnon and his wife Susan of Foxborough, and the late Michael F. McKinnon, Jr., Francis X. McKinnon, Gerald C. McKinnon, Ann-Marie Neault, Lorraine DeFelice and Robert McKinnon. She was the sister in law of Barbara McKinnon of IA, Gene Neault of Sharon, Ed DeFelice of Stoughton and Carol McKinnon of West Bridgewater. Patti is survived by many nieces, nephews and extended family.
