Patricia A. Curcio Maglia, 85, of Methuen, MA, passed away March 22, 2021, at Lawrence General Hospital surrounded by her loving family. Born in Lawrence, MA, she was the daughter of the late Luigi and Mary (Furnari) Curcio.
A graduate of Lawrence High School, class of 1953, Patricia went on to attend New Hampshire Barber College in 1979 and began her career in the barber business. She worked for over forty-two years in the barbershop business and owned her own shop for more than twenty of those years. Patricia was very proud to be one of the few woman barbers. She was a loving and devoted mother to her two children and to her grandchildren.
Patricia enjoyed long walks on the beach, gardening, traveling, good music, ballroom dancing, cooking, baking and sewing. She loved her dog Sabrina and her cat, Bodean, as well as all of the neighborhood dogs. Always available to help family and friends with whatever they needed, she will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. She would like to leave these final words for everyone, “We all need to forgive others so we will be forgiven too.” A special thank you to her doctors, Dr. Scrasko and Stephanie Capario for their kindness towards her.
She is survived by her son, Frank Curcio and his wife Sandra; her daughter, Doreen Gillian and her husband Scott; her grandchildren, Derrick Martin and his wife Amy, Nicole Martin, Natalie Gillian and Frank Curcio, Jr. and his wife Jordan; as well and her great-grandchildren, Shyrah, Saliyah and Madison. She is also survived by her sister, Ida Silva and was pre-deceased by her brother, Frank Curcio.
