Patricia (Trish) Duncan


ALAMOSA — Patricia (Trish) Duncan, 72, passed away peacefully December 5, 2020, in Hyannis, MA. Trish was born in Paterson, New Jersey, and spent most of her childhood on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. After graduating from high school, she moved to Alamosa, Colorado to attend Adams State College. She lived in Colorado for many years, and eventually moved back to Martha’s Vineyard, a place she loved.

Trish wore many hats during her lifetime. An avid reader, she eventually found her dream job working at the Oak Bluffs (MA) Public Library. Prior to that, she held various jobs, ranging from cleaning homes, to working at Splashland in Alamosa (CO), to movie theatres on Martha’s Vineyard. She was a caring mother and friend, and was always willing to give what she could to others.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Lucille Niemiec and her brother John (Mary Ann) Niemiec. Survivors include her brother Edward; sons Jason (Stephanie) Duncan, Matthew (Stephanie) Duncan, and William Duncan; and grandchildren Cade, Mason, Samantha and Sydney.

Cremation was selected and due to the pandemic, a private family service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in her honor to the Oak Bluffs Public Library.
