Pat’s favorite things in life were Christmas (where everyone in the family knew that on Christmas Eve they were to be at her house no matter what), reading, hosting wine dinners, and traveling. She and Herb went on many fabulous trips in the Caribbean and Europe, and later in their retirement to many “out of the way” places in the USA during enjoyment of their timeshares. Pat was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Dianne. She is survived by her husband Herb, her two daughters and their spouses; Kathryn Freiberger and Mark King, and Anjanette Freiberger and Kevin Soper, three grandchildren, Ariana, Rachel, and Connor, one uncle, Mike “Uncle Mike” Cantwell, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Pat will be missed by many people in many places.
