Patrycia Lukac

patryciaPatrycia Lukac, 71, sister-in-law of Diane Lukac, died on July 10th following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Patry was a celebrated novelist of three books of fiction published by Harper Collins under the pen name Patry Francis. She was also inducted into the prestigious Poetry Society of America, but to others she was most known for her acts of kindness—volunteering at the local prison, assisting the homeless, teaching meditation and for her loving wisdom.  

When she visited Chebeague and was told about all the artistic and aspirational talent on the island she said, “I can feel how the immense beauty of this place can inspire anyone to do anything they set their minds to”

Her loss will be felt by the more than 500 people who attended her funeral, but especially by her family.
