We who were fortunate to work with Pat at South Central Bell enjoyed her beautiful smile and laugh. When someone mentioned to Pat that they had heard she was a great housekeeper, she giggled and said, "Yes, even when I see an itsy-bitsy bit of dirt, I'll pick it up!" I was so impressed with that - I think of her every time I'm cleaning. Just another legacy of sweet Pat! I'm sure you will miss her. Take care.

I did not ever work directly with Pat, but got to know her after retirement at our CWA RMC club. All of our club retirees were former workers at "the telephone company" and represent various jobs, different locations, etc. Knowing her and learning of her being Greek, her career, her family was very interesting, God bless you all.
