Pat was a dear friend and wonderful sister-in-law. Many fond memories of times spent together. I will miss her and our conversations. The Christmas Eve parties were always the highlight of the year. My prayers are with Lorie and Sue and all the family and I pray that God gives each one of you peace and comfort in your sorrow. Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to help you smile again. Good-bye for now Pat and say hello to Tom for me. Love always.

Aunt Pat was a wonderful person. So many fond memories running through the halls of their home as a child with my cousins. Christmas Eve celebrations at her home hold a special place in my heart along with her infectious smile. She was an exceptional person and will be missed. Peace be with you Aunt Pat❤️

I will miss my Sister Pat so very much. She was such a good part of our life. We'll always remember her but especially when we make our favorite dishes like pork and sauerkraut, mac and cheese and meat loaf as we always use the casserole dish she got us for our wedding gift many years ago. I'll miss her laugh, her smile and most importantly her. She has two of the most wonderful daughters a mother could have. They cared for her everyday during all of her difficult times. Pat was a sweet and giving person loved by many. May you finally be at peace. Love forever Susie and Larry.
