To the family of Patricia Herber I extend my sorrow on your loss. Many years ago I use to see Patricia at Scotts Eavey Grocery Store. She would be buying canned goods by the gallon size. She seemed well organized with her lists. Later in years I would see her at Craft Shows with her neat crafts. She was always friendly. My son, Philip Hunkler would pick up Patricia's, son, Pete for many trips to Wayne High School. Even though Philip lives in Charlotte, NC. he still keeps in contact with Pete. Peace Be to You!

Cherish all the Good Memories. Donna Jean Hunkler

For my sister, Pat and all my nieces and nephews,
Those who pass away before us live on in the hearts and memories of all who are left behind.

Pat was not just a devoted mom and wife but also a thoughtful and caring sister. She showered attention on her “baby” sister and our brother, John, and as the”older sister” always looked out for us. She never forgot a birthday or a special occasion, sometimes accompanied with one of her beautiful hand sewn creations or a delicious new recipe she had found. She was a wonderful example, so loved and will be greatly missed by all of us.
