Patricia A. Restivo (nee Kenney)

Pat Restivo, of Sag Harbor and formerly of Bayridge, Brooklyn, passed away September 10, 2010, at the Westhampton Care Facility. She was 72.

Mrs. Restivo was born April 26, 1938 in Brooklyn, the only child of Harold and Agnes Kenney (nee Weaver). She attended Visitation, Fontbonne Academy, and St. Claire’s Nursing School. She worked for years in the healthcare industry: as a registered nurse at hospitals in the Bronx and Bay Shore; as a marketing manager at Quality Care and as a social services coordinator at Southampton Hospital. Her true love was family, friends and the summers spent working at Camp St Vincent in North Haven and Camp St. Regis in East Hampton, as the camp nurse.

A resident of Sag Harbor since 1967, Mrs. Restivo had a passion for the village and was a founding member of the Sag Harbor Youth Center. After retiring, she volunteered at the Sag Harbor Windmill and conducted blood pressure screenings at the Medicine Shoppe in Southampton.

Mrs. Restivo is survived by her loving children:  Lorraine Bromley (Michael, deceased August 23, 2010) of Hewlett, NY; Robert Restivo (Amy) of Mount Laurel, NJ; and William Restivo of New York City; and five granddaughters. She is also survived by Vincent Restivo, Sag Harbor. Married for 21 years before divorcing in 1978, they remained close friends.

At her service, Allen Youngs read a proclamation from the Town of Southampton in recognition of her contribution to the community. Afterwards, she was honored with a police escort through Sag Harbor. She would have enjoyed that.

    Pat was an extraordinary woman and a phenomenal Nurse. She had an incredible wit and a rare level of compassion. I had the absolute pleasure of being her co-worker for many years and working with Pat was not only fun; it was a continual learning experience. She had a commitment to her children and grandchildren that could not be superseded by anything. It was amazing to “watch”. She loved Sag Harbor and it’s residents and took her responsibilities at the Sag Harbor Youth Association quite seriously. Pat was the type of person that you were blessed to have had the opportunity to be friends with. She was both my co-worker and my dear friend for many years and for that I will always be grateful for. She was a very rare individual who could never be duplicated.

    “May he lift you up on Eagle’s Wings, Pat”.

    Mrs. Restivo was a lovely woman. I knew her as the nurse for Camp St. Regis where her caring touch and sense of humor were always comforting. My thoughts and prayers are with Lori, Billy, Bobby and the Restivo family.

    So sorry to hear of her passing. I was a camper at St. Regis also. Mrs. Restivo was always so observant, like having xray vision that extended beyond your physical well-being into your heart, and could read sadness or homesickness as well as any illness. She always made us feel safe and cared for, and her children were terrific, a testament to her care. Thinking of you, Lori, Bobby and Billy. Deepest sympathies.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Lori, Billy and Bobby. Your Mom was always there for me at Camp St. Regis. She made me feel so special and cared whether I was sick or just feeling blue. Wishing you strength during these difficult times, all my best…Jackie Pash

  5. I noticed your weblog when seeking for something distinct on Yahoo and bing about topics related to movies, but I had the opportunity to read this post and I found it very helpful certainly.

    I am going to miss Pat. Just listening to Simon and Garfunklel and thought of her. As a counselor at Camp St Vincent both Vinnie and Pat were my best friends for many years. She was wonderful to all of us. Over the years we kept in infrequent contact but was surprised to read of her death.
    I was hoping to once again share the joy of us listening to the music of our generation and visiting one day with her family in North Haven.
    My bests to Bobby, Billy and Lorrie. Vinnie, I hope you are well and enjoying your family.
    Please take the time to see the many stars in the sky at night. Knowing that Pat’s
    Energy is now with them
