My name is Maria Bedard. I went through grade school and high school with Patty. I lived across the street for 10 years. Pattys sweet momma Evelyn and I were birthday buddies. I got a call from Carol on December 30th and was asked to go to the house and be with Frank,which was my pleasure.
I will miss our visits and card exchanges.
Rest in peace Patty. We will all look after your daddy!

I love that picture of you and your mom. It looks just like you, Patty! I know your mom is happy to have you with her in heaven. I told your cousin, Tom, that you are probably trying to get your dad up there now, so you can all be together.

I will forever miss the many phone conversations and cards. We had a lot of fun at our birthday parties as kids. You were so funny. Everyone liked you. You were a wonderful person and so devoted to the care of your parents. I know God will reward you. Your little bird is being taken care of by the neighbor and your dad is OK too.

May our Lord bless you and keep you; May our Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; May our Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

God bless you, Patty!

Until we meet again,
Mary Blod

We will Miss Patty so much, we have lived next door to the Steinhoff‘s for 43 years . We have shared so many life and death experiences it will not be the same after this. We helped each other all through the years but Patty has been extremely helpful to me the last 4 years aster my husband was in a motorcycle accident, then 2 years ago being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer then passing 4/16/19. She just came over a couple of days before Christmas bringing presents. She called mein Christmas toilet us know our gate was open, lol. That was the last time I spoke to her sadly. I will miss you forever Patty. I Love you and please give Joe a Big Hug for me. RIP
Prayers for Peace and Comfort to Frank and the Family.

I am a friend of Patty’s from St. Columbian. We grew up together and although we have not seen each other for many years we wrote to each other when Evelyn died. I have many wonderful memories of Patty and her parents and her dog Fifi. Overnights and vacations with the Steinhoff family. Sending my love and condolences to Frank. I’m so sorry for your loss.
