Patricia Glasheen Lyons, 86 of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL passed away on December 10, 2023.  She was born on November 17, 1937, in Boston, Massachusetts to Joseph F. Glasheen and Agnes (Wilbur) Glasheen.  Pat grew up in Belmont, MA and graduated from Trinity College, Washington, D.C. She started her career as an elementary teacher in Silver Spring, MD before returning to Boston where she continued teaching in East Boston and Winchester.  She earned her master’s and doctorate degrees at Boston University and began working at Rhode Island College in Providence, RI. Pat was passionate about teaching education to future educators and bringing educational opportunities to the immigrant and underserved communities around Providence. She loved RIC both in the classroom and at the administrative level where she served for a time as Assistant Dean of the School of Education.

Pat met Dick Lyons on the golf course at Kirkbrae Country Club.  They married in 1986 and relocated to Florida after Pat’s retirement in 2000.  Pat and Dick loved their life in Sawgrass Country Club both on and off the course. The many friendships formed enhanced their lives.

Crimmins of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL; and her sister-in-law, Mary Elizabeth (Betty) O’Donnell Glasheen of Dallas, TX.  She is also survived by 6 nieces and nephews, 16 grand nieces and nephews and 5 great- grand nieces and nephews.
