I had so much fun with Patsy, Jan and Marian. I was a classmate of Jan. I have not seen her for years but I will still miss her. So sad for family! God Bless!

Patsy was a good friend. We went to St. Philip's grade school together Class of 1949. Patsy and brother Ron walked as far as French Village with my brother Jack Hellyer and I. We lived on Holy Cross road which was a bit further. The tall girls always had to walk last in school processions. There was Marie, Lois, Patsy and yours truly. Just a little story to share with your children.

I met Pat when she married my neighbor Lee Deters and moved to La Mesa, CA. The Deters families remained close friends with my family all the year's since. Pat was a beautiful lady, wonderful wife, and mother. I was sad to hear of her passing, and send my love and condolences to her family.

Pat befriended me many years ago when I first came to San Diego. She was always their for me in those early years. I pray Ray and Mary find peace in knowing she is with the Lord.
