Patricia Ann Chincheck, 86, of McMechen passed away Thursday, June 2, 2022 at home surrounded by her loving family.
Patricia was born to the late Page and Ernestine (Withrow) Gallagher on January 31, 1936 in McMechen, WV.
There were many things in life that brought Patricia joy including; shopping, fashionable clothing, holiday decorating and hosting (especially the 4th of July and Christmas), spending time with her dear friends and family and cheering on the John Marshall Monarchs. It was at Union High school that Patricia, who was a majorette, met her high school sweetheart who would later become her loving husband of sixty eight 68 years, Joseph Chincheck. Both Mr. and Mrs. Chincheck were proud Union Alumni who went on to become founding members of the Union High School Alumni Association and served the association for more than thirty five (35) years. Patricia lived a life of gratitude as she was a liver transplant beneficiary more than twenty two (22) years ago. She enjoyed speaking and volunteering with CORE to raise awareness and provide education around the importance of being an organ and tissue donor.
