Patricia J. Krichten
03/01/1952 - 05/27/2020
Patricia Jane Krichten, 68, of Hanover, passed away Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at her home. Married in 1968, she was the loving wife of her devoted husband, Robert F. Krichten, Jr. with whom she shared more than 51 years of marriage. Born March 1, 1952 in Hanover, PA she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Elizabeth (Myers) LaPresti. Pat was a sensitive, intelligent, kind-hearted person who loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with all her heart. Although the demons of her mind prevented her from living her life to its fullest, she was always a bit of a rebel and possessed a mischievousness that could bring laughter to a room and she was stubborn as hell. She enjoyed reading and crossword puzzles and had an amazing green thumb, filling her home with beautiful potted plants. She especially loved spending time with her sisters, Peg and Cathy – there were many movie nights with laughter, snacks, and horror movies, her favorite genre. She truly was a unique and special person and we will miss her terribly. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children, Catherine J. Litsikas and husband John of Littlestown, Robert F. Krichten, III of McSherrystown, and Michael R. Krichten of Columbus, Ohio; siblings Margaret Reck and husband David of McSherrystown, Thomas LaPresti and wife Bernadetta of Siegen, Germany, and Catherine Niedererr and husband Robert of McSherrystown; sister-in-law Beverly Miller of Dover; five grandchildren, Antonios Litsikas and wife Kelsey of Hanover, Vasiliki Litsikas of Littlestown, Antonia Litsikas of Hanover, Eleni Justice and husband Jonathan of Littlestown, and Nichole Krichten of Hanover; step-granddaughter Samantha Miller; three great-grandchildren, Michael Jaworski, Jonathan Justice, and Eliana Justice; cousins, Jonathan Becker and wife Lillian, Pam Becker, and Michael Becker and wife Rebecca; numerous nieces and nephews; and special friend, Louise Powers. Services for Patricia will be held privately. Our family would especially like to thank the ambulance crew from Alpha Fire Company – their professionalism, kindness, and compassion was appreciated and will never be forgotten. Contributions in memory of Pat may be made to the Alpha Fire Company, 40 E King St, Littlestown, PA 17340.

Pat was a beautiful, and smart lady. We enjoyed so many good times growing up together. She was my rock during the months following my parents'deaths. I will miss her so much but am comforted in knowing she is at peace. Our condolences and prayers go out to Bob, Cathy, Robbie and Michael, as well as Peg, Tom and Cathy. We love you! Michael and Becky.

Cathy,Peg and family. I was totally shocked about Pat's passing. I am so sorry for your family! I have in my head 50 years ago when we were all in our teens. Cathy and I riding our bikes to the playground and my sister hanging with Pat always doing their hair!! oat in all her bobbypins every night to keep her hair straight!! She was always so happy and upbeat!! sounds like she never stopped being that person. I am sure Bob is in so much pain. I'm sure all his family will be there for him. Again I am so very sorry for you all. hopefully Pat is in a good place now with no more pain. Mitch Klunk
