Pat was such a Kind spirit, who really enjoyed Life! She was proud of her two children: Steven and Kaye, as well as her Granddaughter and Great-grandson. Pat is with her Husband and Family in God's Paradise, where she can enjoy a Life of Joy and Happiness, for all eternity.

I lived across the street from Pat and Jim for many years. We were friends; we attended parties together and went out together with other neighbors. Pat was a good woman who loved life, and loved to laugh. She will be missed by all who knew her.
