I knew Patty from our dog rescuing times. Patty was truly excellent in fostering helpless dogs that had no homes. Patty took many, many of these little Shih-Tzu dogs into her home where she fostered them almost as a member of her family and helped them believe that people could be kind and loving. I am sure Patty fostered at least 100 of these little dogs and was able to find them forever loving and caring homes. I know Patty is in Heaven now being thanked for being so kind to so many helpless dogs.
I shall certainly remember Patty forever and thank you Patty for being so friendly and kind to Orli who was one of my special Shih-Tzu dogs.

On my first visit to St. Matthew UMC, Patty came across the sanctuary to meet me. She stole my heart in that moment and never returned it. We became fast friends and I will be forever grateful for that. She was truly a person who lit up a room with her fashion statements, her smile, her graciousness, her positivity, and the love that she bestowed upon everyone she met, including her fur babies. She could lighten the heart of anyone who met her and make you glad to be alive. She left footprints on my heart and the world will be a little dimmer without her in it. The good news is she is dancing the light fantastic with Don in their eternal home. I’m betting heaven has not known such joy as Patty brings. Will miss you forever, Patty!

Patty was a wonderful, fashionable, caring, gregarious, and loving woman! Her faith and love for others radiated from heart always! She was a foster mom to so many fur babies, especially my beloved Taz! Although he was a Bichon Fres and not a Shihtzu, she rescued him from the street, and he became mine! 🥰
I will miss Patty and our wonderful discussions from our faith to politics! She has left a big hole in my heart! I am a better person for having her in my life and she will be surely missed! All my love, Joann Das
