Patricia L. (Oliver) Jennings “Patti”, age 72, of New Castle, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on September 29, 2017. She was born to Harry “Hap” and Mary Oliver.

Patti was a 1962 graduate of William Penn High School. She went on to have a 40 plus year career with Wilmington College, now Wilmington University. There she worked as registrar and worked for alumni relations. She loved her coworkers and the school and was dedicated to seeing it thrive.

She was beautiful and talented. But not to be fooled by her looks, Patti was a racecar driver in her younger days. She and her husband Dick enjoyed travelling and going on cruises. She loved to be around her family and friends and she will be missed greatly.

Patti is predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her husband Richard O. Jennings; her children, Harry “Hap” Jennings (Sherry) and Dorothy "Dottie" Jennings; sister Dorothy Oliver; grandchildren, Patricia Grady (Tom), Kyle Jennings, and Kathleen Jennings.

Services for Patti will be held on October 5, 2017 at McCrery & Harra, 3710 Kirkwood Hwy, Wilm., DE 19808 with a viewing at 10am and a service following at 11am. Burial is private.

In lieu of flowers, consider a donation in her name to Wilmington University Scholarship Fund, 320 N. DuPont Hwy, New Castle, DE 19720.
