A bookkeeper by trade, Pat loved finding treasures at yard sales, growing beautiful flowers in her yard and “running the roads,” as her husband always called it.

Dearest Sherri and Family, my deepest heart felt sympathy and prayers go out to all of you. I am so very sorry to hear of your recent losses. I have many fond memories of times spent at your house. Sherri, your Mother packed THE BEST brown bag lunches for us to take to school. The bag was always packed to FULL capacity with everything a child would enjoy! I remember when your Dad managed the slot car track at Brook Hill Azalea. Sherri I will always count you among my dearest friends. To think how we have known each other since elementary school! Honestly it seems almost like yesterday. I know the love and strength of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will sustain you through these most difficult times. Oh and YES I still love Donny Osmond! I am blessed to have known your Mom. Patricia was an absolute jewel. Your parents always made me feel special and welcome in their home. May God bless each and everyone of you and give you peace. ❤ sympathy and prayers to all of you. JODY

Sherri, so sorry for your loss, I remember your mother from when I worked at the bank at staples mill, she was very sweet and kind,
and when you first go married and how sweet she was with my daughter Michelle as your flower girl .
