I am so very sorry for your loss. Pat rode to work with me for many years. I knew her as a hard working, caring woman that was truely devoted to her family. I have so many fond memories of Pat and know that you have many of your own . Praying for all the family to hold on to those memories you have as a way of healing from the loss of such a wonderful lady.

Jane and family. So very sorry for your loss. Praying for a blessed rest and peace and confidence in knowing she left her family well and continuing on with life until you meet again.

I remember Patricia as a hard working and joyful mom to her children. She was so proud of her kids and the things they did in school ( her daughter Marilyn was in my class) You are in my thoughts and prayers at the death of this special lady. Margaret Watkins Fett

CandleI send my deepest condolences to my family suffering this loss. I have grown up hearing how sweet my grandmother was. I have heard stories of baking cookies and how special she made all the grandchildren feel. I will forever cherish this stories and keep them close to my heart. Ya'll will be in my prayers.
