Patricia Ann Minella (nee Collinsworth)

Patricia Minella passed away on October 8, 2021, peacefully at home.  She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Ramon “Ray” Minella, and children Tammi Shoemaker, Gina (Edward) Minella-Rasnick, and Tara Dilley.  She was the loving grandmother of Cody (Kristyn), Nick (Kendra), Alex, Elise (Tanner), Kylie, and Nickole, and great grandmother of Reid and Emery.  She was proceeded in death by her parents Bert and Evelyn Collinsworth and brothers Ed and Rick Collinsworth.

Patricia (aka Pat, Patti, and Trish) loved her family fiercely and was especially devoted to her role as “Nanny” to her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She was the proud owner of a dance studio (Allthatjazz) for over 25 years.  In addition to dance, she loved the beach, reading, the Reds, UK basketball, her dog (Ginger), and her granddog (Maverick). Herlife was a blessing, her memory a treasure; she is loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.

So sad to hear of Ms. Trish’s passing. My daughter danced at her dance studio for several years. Ms. Trish was always feisty and made me laugh. I always enjoyed sitting on the bench with her and chatting while my daughter had practice. Trish was supportive of all the arts and cheered my son on in theater as well. Ms. Trish will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
