I met Patty through the Fowler family. You were always kind, capable, steady, strong, and funny. You were an asset to your children, family, and the family of the CPD. Your smile is beautiful.
May you know peace in your soul forever. God Bless to you and your family.

Patty we will all miss you so much. Our hearts are broken. We will never forget our amazing adventures as we careened around the City chasing bad guys and girls. It was all so much more fun because you were with us. Making us laugh and getting it done. It was an absolute pleasure to know you and an honor to work along side you. Rest in peace friend. Deepest Sympathy to all who knew and loved you.

Patty Walsh , just hearing your name makes me smile. I am so sorry to hear that behind that beautiful light and smile may have been sadness or pain. I pray for peace and strength for you and your family

Late 90s, Chicago, meetings, Boys Town - music, walks, talks and coffee shops.
Spending time with Pattyโ€™s family when her nephews Nick, Chris and Joe, were just young boys. Alabama, antiques, saving Jelly, Grover & Mikey.
And, the last time we met for lunch in 2017. You glowed with such pride and gratitude when talking about your sons, Seamus and Liam. Your smile was as big as ever.
I am grateful to have shared some moments in time with you, Patty. Be in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with your boys and the rest of your family.

Patty was larger than life, in everything she did. I did not see her often, but when I did, her smile, her laugh, her joy filled the room. She will be deeply missed by so many! My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and coworkers. I work with the police regularly and I know she was very well respected in her field. RIP.

We met Patty at Pope John when our oldest boys were young. What a fun time in our lives, made even more fun by Patty. She always had a story about the south side. We connected about my family members going to Queen of Peace or common parishes. After we both moved on to different schools with our boys, we would run into her at basketball games and tournaments. It was always so awesome to reconnect and catch up. I will miss that. I ache for her boys and family, and wish them, and Patty, peace. Praying for all of you and sending much love.๐Ÿ’™

"They shall not grow old,
as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning,

We will remember them"

She's the first person I've been thinking about in the morning, and the last person at night. I thought that quote was rather fitting.

Patty was a friend from high school and we picked back up on Facebook as so many of us have done. Whenever I saw her, she was always happy. She was always the center of attention, as you couldn't help but laugh and smile at the stories she told. Don't believe me? Look at all the pictures of her, she's always right smack in the middle, with that big beautiful smile. If we were drinking alcohol, her big splurge would be a six-pack of Diet Pepsi. We knew she was really in "party mode" when the pop came out, hehe.

Ah, Patty, you will forever be missed. My prayers are with your beautiful children and to your family.
God Bless You, Patty Boo-Boo

Patty was one of the first person we were drawn to at a vacation resort and instantly had a connection with. She made us laugh as we talked about life and enjoying the moment. Our thoughts are with her and her family and friends, much love โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
