Pat loved to go to antique shops and garage sales. She loved playing bridge and belonged to several bridge clubs. She enjoyed drawing and painting on canvas. Pat also loved to decorate homes that she and Don remodeled. She was extremely good and very gifted at directing Barney on what to do.
Pat enjoyed watching everyone of her children and grandchildren play athletics with great success. She faithfully watched them and was very proud of them all.
Pat and Barney moved to Geneva in 2002 so they could be closer to some of their children and grand-children. They lived in Gering & Scottsbluff, Nebraska for 25 years where they developed many life long friendships.
On September 11, 2008 Pat suffered a stroke and after a hospital stay, found out that she had 7 strokes before that were never diagnosed. During this time we continued to enjoy time with her. Her health continued to decline until her death, one day after her 79th birthday.
Pat was a very loving mother, wife and friend. She was the greatest.
