Deepest Symphony to daughter Susan and son John and all the grandchildren.
Patty was a lovely and caring soul. She was a fond grandmother who adored the girls. We have been away from the area for many years but we saw Patty and John when we returned for visits. We were so sorry to hear of her passing.

Met Patricia through her husband, who was a good friend of my husband Charles. He and John were members together at the Fairview Heights Elks and became their caretakers of the landscaping. They were quite the characters together. Patricia was very sweet, somewhat reserved, but a lady in all respects. I enjoyed being with her. I was so sorry to read of her demise. Please accept my condolences.
