Patti was our neighbor for 25 years. We had many good times and bad times together but we was always there for each other. She is missed beyond words that can express. Our heartfelt sympathy to Liza and her family. Rest in peace, Patti.

My name is Amy I work at the Goodyear Branch Library It was my honor and the staff to have met your Mom! I have talked to her over the years and she herself was a great listener. She was so excited to have sold her home and was on her way to Florida . We often talked about your family and mentioned all of you by name, I just recently gave her a big hug about the great doctor results, and will always cherish her friendship.
Her smile lit up a room, our entire staff will miss her greatly
sincerely, Amy Casteel

This was posted by me on FaceBook to the JRBHS c/o 1967.
Hey There!

Remember all the friends you had in elementary, junior high, senior high, college, post-college, no college, the armed and/or social services, etc.? Isn't it amazing to look back over the years, and think about different times - face to face, by telephone, cell phone, smartphone, email, snail mail, instant messaging, tweets, that we all shared with one another?

Then it happens.  You see someone from that past, and you reconnect like you just saw them yesterday or last weekend.  It was like that for me seeing Patti, and many of my classmates, and sadly, some family members too.  We could laugh about something that happened at a Reunion, Birthday Party, or way back to high school.  Patti and I would stand outside at the Tangier, or the Sportsmen Park out on Jacoby Rd, or the Hilton, or Holiday Inn, and laugh and be silly, return to the function all composed like we hadn't said something off the wall.  We all know Patti was good at speaking her mind about every, and anything.  That was just Patti.  I will truly miss her.  She was in my corner, no matter how I was feeling at the time.

She was a bounce-back person, a true fighter for what she believed in whether in her life/health, family, friends, even her political views, correct, or not, she stood her ground. Our Patti.  May our LORD and Saviour bless her and us too. His Plan to move Patti to a brand new Heavenly home, really surpassed our thoughts on moving.  Didn't it?

Love you.

Met Patti when we worked at REX. She was so easy to like. Loved talking with her. She loved life and adored her daughter.

Patti, you were my treasured friend. Together we were looking forward to great times. We had an unforgettable, and wonderful time back in September 2019 - you brought life into this home. You have gone on to a better place, free of pain and heartache, while you dance through the clouds, and twinkle down on us in the night sky. You will always have a special place in my heart because of your kindness, love, beautiful smile, and that wonderful laugh.

Patti was hard core REAL -- a blue collar survivor, genuine music maven, helplessly hopeful romantic, dream weaver, memory maker and selfless, unfailing friend. Patti is unforgettable.

Patti and I were friends for over 60 years. I moved in next door to her when we were in Jr. High at Simon Perkins. So many memories of good times in Akron. Rest in Peace my friend.

From the moment we met in the 70’s at Roadway we began a friendship so full of laughter. Patti loved to prank me and I always knew she would keep any secret I had.
Her laughter will stay with me forever along with her smile
