    Remembering Pat with her sweet welcoming smile and love for all people. She gave generously of her time and shared her faith with members of our women’s circle at Westminster Presbyterian Church. I missed her when she moved to FL but look forward to seeing her again in heaven!

    We will truly miss Pat for her friendship with everyone here at the center and her encyclopedic knowledge on almost everything. To Richard and her children, we share in your sadness and we are thinking of you all as you celebrate Pat life..

    We lost a dear friend for so many years. We were high school classmates. Pat will be missed by us and many. The memories are many and will not die easily. Through good and bad times we remained close to Pat. Good bye dear friend.

    Pat was a sweet, kind lady who was always helpful to me and anticipated my questions before I asked. My condolences to her family.
