At an early age Pat had a passion for the arts including drama and especially dance. She studied ballet and tap with Elmer Wheatley and the Hoffmanettes and enjoyed performing at local recitals. Pat met Cameron Peter Grammas in Birmingham while attending a wedding. The couple fell in love and on April 28, 1955 married in Waco. They started their new life in Birmingham that same year. Pat was totally devoted to Cameron, was a constant source of support for him, and she was so proud of his long career as a certified life underwriter. Pat and Cameron were blessed with a son Steven of whom they were most proud. Pat was a long time member of Holy Trinity Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral.
