Pat was a good friend over the years as she took her yearly trip to Two Rivers. We would all go out to eat and then take turns going to Oneida with her. She could always make the sun moon star machine spit. We will miss you.

Patricia was just recently added to the Saturday Meals on Wheels route that my son and I deliver. So I couldn't say that we really got to "know" her but I can say that the couple times we delivered to her prior to this sad news she had a very warm smile and I can say we are very glad to have met her. Our sympathies to you all.

I remember being at her house with my brother Chuck and daughter Terry, she was always laughing or smiling, she had a beautiful smile, that is one memory I will have of her and remember of her. She was a sweet lady, she will be missed deeply by her family and friends but she is now with her loved ones in heaven. Don't say good bye to Pat, just say to yourself "Till we meet again beautiful lady and keep them laughing and smiling in heaven:.
