Patricia Logan, 80, of Collierville, TN, formerly of Columbia, MD, left this world on Sunday, June 11, 2023. She was born on September 13, 1942, in Sewickley, to the late Edward Ezra "Red" and Carmelinda (Centoni) Throckmorton.  Patricia graduated from Quaker Valley High School in 1960 and graduated from Edinboro University in 1964. She went on to teach English for 37 years and won a Teacher's Appreciation Award and was entered into the Who's Who in American Teachers.

Logan III, daughter-in-law, Becky, grandchildren, Emma, Sarah, Julia, and Jonathan of Arlington, Virginia, daughter, Mary Logan Mosner, son-in-law, David, and grandchild Eoin of Memphis, Tennessee, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews and her extended family and friends too numerous to mention.
