She attended and graduated from Lewiston Porter School (Class of 1978). Shortly after graduating she met her husband Richard M. Kruppa to whom she was married to for 25 wonderful years before his passing in 2005.

Patty is survived by her loving husband Curtiss Thomas Jr., her daughter Kelly A. Kruppa, her adopted daughter Ariel R. Peters, beloved twin sister and best friend Joann Peters and sisters Susan Truesdell and Deborah Baker. She is also survived by her grand-daughter and best buddy Arianna Sanders (and Arianna's father Antonio Sanders), and many nieces, nephews, friends and family that will miss her dearly.

Patty is also survived by her 2 precious fur babies (cats) Damien and M.J. She enjoyed spending time with her cats and her grand-daughter Arianna playing with Play-doh and coloring. She also enjoyed relaxing and watching old movies with Curtiss or her true crime shows on the ID channel always with her cats by her side.

A Celebration of Life memorial will be held at a later date, and burial will be at the convenience of the family at North Ridge Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to ZAJAC FUNERAL HOME INC. Visit for online condolences
