To the Hyland Family, I just heard of the passing of Miss Hyland, who was my gym teacher at Archbishop Prendergast High School from 1976 to 1980. She was a wonderful person and brought fun to our gym class. I have so many fond memories of her and our other gym teacher who was also taken too young, Miss Condon. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with your during this difficult time. May her soul rest in peace with the Lord.

Ahhh, Ms Pattie...a beautiful life taken away much too quickly for those of us left behind.
I met Pattie in 2007 and from the moment we met, there was in instant connection and friendship that distance could not separate.
She lived her life full of energy and enthusiasm sharing her warmth, compassion, and spirit with everyone she met!
We shared some memorable times together in Sanibel, FL and in Sedona, AZ where we enjoyed a fabulous early morning hot air balloon ride over the red rocks and spent time at a lovely resort!
We shared an early Christmas (2007) together in Fort Myers with “Mama Ruth” and a friend and Easter 2008 with “Dede” and some of her family in AZ. We also volunteered our time together assisting a medical intuitive’s program.
Life was always happy and fun in her presence. I was truly blessed to know her and to love her!
In life as in death and for eternity, we can all be assured that Pattie is still giving, sharing, teaching, and helping others! We love you, Girl! 💕

Pattie was the warmest, sweetest, person who opened her heart and home to me when I first moved to Arizona. She included me in several family get togethers that always were a hoot! Life events changed our courses, but we met up again a few years ago when my office was in the same building as hers, and we literally ran into each other on the elevator! I moved out of Arizona and lost touch with Pattie, but have always held our Fun times together close to my heart. She will be missed by her loving Family and all the friends in her life. Knowing she is in the arms of our Heavenly Father should make us smile!
