04/05/1943 - 02/06/2024

Patricia L. Sciaretta (nee Laubach), 80, Of Chatham, New Jersey passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at her home surrounded by her family.

Patricia was born April 5, 1943, in Bound Brook, New Jersey. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Mary Ella (nee Van Fleet) Laubach.

Patricia started out her career after high school as a graduate of the Katharine Gibbs School with an Executive Secretary certificate. She worked as a legal secretary for a law firm until 1965 when she graduated from Overlook Hospital of Practical Nursing as an LPN. She then went on to complete her RN AAS degree from Middlesex County College in 1972, her RN BSN degree from Jersey City State College in 1979 and completed her Master of Science in Nursing at Walden University in 2012.

Patricia’s nursing career spanned an amazing 57 years. Her passion for the profession drove her to excel in the high paced hospital setting which she thrived in. For decades she spent her time perfecting her skills in the Burn Unit, Cardiac Care Unit, Critical Care Unit, Emergency Room, Hemodialysis Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Open Heart Surgery Recovery Unit and Level 1 Trauma Unit. At one point later in her career, Patricia thought she should slow down a bit and tried her hand in a pediatrician’s office. Needless to say, that didn’t work out and she was back in the hustle and bustle of the hospital in two weeks. Later in her career Patricia did cases for the Visiting Nurses Association and Right at Home Agency. She loved going to patients’ homes to access, refer and manage their care. Patrica was also a Didactic & Clinical Nursing Instructor for Middlesex, Morris and Somerset County Vocational Schools, Lincoln Tech, Berkeley College, Union County College, and New Jersey City University.

At home she was a loving and devoted wife to Joe for 54 years, her high school sweetheart, until he passed 8 years ago. Patricia was an unconditionally loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and doting dog mom. She enjoyed spending time outdoors gardening and her evenings curled up with a good book to read.

Patrica was predeceased by her husband Joseph Sciaretta Jr. in 2015. She is survived by her son Michael Sciaretta and his wife Melissa, and her daughter LeeAnn Eng and her husband Jonathan. She was the cherished grandmother of David and his wife Christine, Jacqueleen, Zachary, Michael Jr., and Jenna. And the adored great grandmother of Logan and Mia.
