Patricia Philomena O’Hagen Figy, age 92, of Wauseon went home to be with her Lord late Saturday July 20, 2013 at Fulton Manor Nursing Home surrounded by her loving family. Prior to her retirement she had been a life long Homemaker and Child Care Provider for many years.
Mrs. Figy was born in Ipswitch, Queensland, Australia on April 19, 1921 the daughter of the late Francis and the late Josephine (Roberts) O’Hagen. She came to the US as a war bride in 1946 and married Donald K. Figy. She was a strong, beautiful, loving and thoughtful woman. She was a devoted matriarch to her family as a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. After living here for over sixty years, she was still recognized for her Australian accent, which she thought had disappeared. She will be sadly missed by all who loved and knew her.
Surviving are five daughters; Carol Palmer, Denise (Robert) Gaff, Bonnie (Kevin Rashley) Meyer all of Cottonwood, AZ, Linda (Jay) Shaffer, Gayle (Gary) Ely both of Wauseon and son; Randall Figy of Cottonwood, AZ.
