Although Pat graduated from Central Heights High School and Massey Business College, she chose to be a stay-at-home mom until her children started school. At that time, she began working at a medical office, where she was an office manager, until retirement. Pat loved her grandchildren most of all but also enjoyed her friends. She loved entertaining friends and family and played canasta with a special group of ladies for more than 30 years. Pat loved going on trips with her "kids," going to concerts, going to the beach and especially making memories. She was thankful for every day she was given, relied heavily on her faith and gave God the glory for every day. She was a great mom, nannie, sister and friend who will be missed by everyone.
