Patricia DeFrancesco Wickers, 74, died peacefully in her Annapolis home on July 21, 2013 after a brief illness.

She was born in Cornwall New York and graduated in 1957 from Monroe-Woodbury High School in Central Valley, New York.

She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and friend who loved to spend time with her family and friends. She particularly enjoyed going out to eat and having a glass or two of chardonnay.
She was an avid reader; she also enjoyed watching BBC sitcoms, Life Time and Turner Classic Movies. Patti was so proud of Michele and Eric that she glowed whenever she spoke of them; they were the apples of her eyes.
Patti was a tea connoisseur and she enjoyed having a cup of tea every morning with a blue berry muffin or her favorite Entenmann's crumb cake. Two of her favorite pastimes were playing Mahjongg with the "Game Girls" at Severn House and just having Friday night pizza with her friend, Lee Douglas.
She was preceded in death by her former husbands' Anthony Louis DeFrancesco and Col. Charles Wickers, and her two brothers, John and Gary Bohl.

She is survived by her daughter, Michele DeFrancesco of Annapolis, Maryland; a devoted grandson, Eric Yazbeck of Towson, Maryland; special friend, Mary Daniels of Annapolis, Maryland; and lifelong "friend forever", Jeanie Nazzaro of Harriman, New York; two sister in laws, Rosemary Higdon and Betty Kraft of Pennsylvania; two step sons, LTC (ret.) Randolph Wickers (Beth) of Gig Harbor, Seattle Washington, and Francis Michael Wickers (Patricia) of Hollywood, Maryland; 6 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and a host of family and close friends.
A celebration of life will be held in her memory at Cafe Mezzanonte Restaurant located at 760 Ritchie Highway, Severna Park, Maryland 21146 on Friday, July 26, 2013 from 4pm to 8pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be given to Hospice of the Chesapeake
