We extend our deepest condolences to Art Rooney and the entire Rooney family with the passing of his mother and our friend Patricia.

Patricia represented the Rooney family and the Steelers with extraordinary grace, dignity, and integrity. Patricia was passionately devoted to her faith, the wonderful family she and Dan raised and adored, the Pittsburgh community and the Steelers’ organization. She was also one of the most passionate football fans you could ever meet and very proud of the number of female fans around the world. 

We will greatly miss her as will the many people whose lives she touched throughout her community, and the NFL.
