Patricia (Rott) Bilkey, 83, of Vero Beach, FL, previously from Buffalo, NY passed away April 23, 2017. Born April 18, 1934 in Buffalo, NY, she was the daughter of the late William C. Rott, Sr. and the late Marie Rott.

She attended Empire State University, where she studied Social Work. She was a stay-at-home mom for many years before going to work at various governmental agencies as a Social Worker.
