Patricia C. Rusevlyan

September 11, 2020

    Patricia Canham Rusevlyan, 83, of Greenville, NC passed away peacefully on September 11, A true Washingtonian, she was born in Washington D.C., and lived much of her adult life in Arlington, VA. She was raised in the Northwest section of D.C., attended the Academy of the Holy Cross. She loved her time working as an usher for 16 years at the Kennedy Center and 19 years with Arlington County Schools serving children as the Tuckahoe Elementary cafeteria manager.

    Pat was the original sports mom. She supported her husband while he played football at the University of Maryland and then later as he was teaching and coaching at O'Connell High School. She was also the team mom for countless little league and youth league teams as her 3 sons played year-round sports. She was always supportive and made sacrifices for her sons so that they could enjoy their youth to the fullest. Through athletics she made many special relationships and was an avid sports fan her entire life; she especially enjoyed Alabama football - Roll Tide! She had a plaque in her kitchen that joyfully read, "There is a special place in heaven for a mother with three sons." Pat enjoyed traveling and was always up for an adventure. Whether she was with her long-time friend and side kick Merle DeGroote or by herself, she was always ready to explore and bring back stories of her travels. Cruising became one of her most treasured activities as she enjoyed the different mix of people that she would meet on every trip.

    Pat was preceded in death by her parents, Donald Davie Canham, Sr. and Audrey Langley Canham; her husband of 40 years, Andrew Robert Rusevlyan, Sr. ("Bob"). She is survived by her sons, Andrew Robert Rusevlyan, Jr. and wife Sue of Charlotte, NC, John Joseph Rusevlyan and wife Kenda of Florence, AL, David Scott Rusevlyan and wife Ainsley of Aurora, NC; brother, Donald Davie Canham, Jr. and wife Alice, Jr.; three grandchildren, Todd Gordon, Leigh Rusevlyan, Jack Rusevlyan; two great grandchildren, Macie Gordon and Ben Gordon.
