Patricia Koscal of Longmont, passed peacefully May 17, 2019, at Longmont United Hospital surrounded by her three daughters. She was 65. Patricia was born February 22, 1954 in Johnson City, New York to George Green and Margaret Balaszek Green. She married Robert Backowies of Longmont, Colorado having one child before amicably separating. She later married Timothy Koscal of Longmont, Colorado having two children before amicably separating 20 years later. Patricia worked for WorldPac and then Autozone for a number of years before being diagnosed with cancer. Pat was a beautiful and courageous soul, whom the minute you met her, you instantly fell in love with her. Her personality was one that lit you up from the inside out. No matter how she was feeling, or what situation she was going through she always had a smile and kind words to give to all who were blessed to meet her. She was intensely proud of her family and loved each and every family member, leaving behind nothing but beautiful memories to be cherished. Towards the end when the illness became too much, she still continued to spread her infectious joy and love for all and everyone around her. Patricia is survived by three daughters: Danielle Backowies, Deanna Koscal and Darcy Koscal of Longmont; three grandchildren, three nephews and one niece. In lieu of flowers, her daughters request that you make a donation to an animal rescue or shelter, as Patricia was a big supporter of rescue animals.
