I worked with Patti for almost 15 years at The Career Place in Woburn. Patti left her mark with everyone she came in contact with and always over extended herself to assist customers in need of that extra training to find a job. Her spirit and beauty will live on through those she touched. My thoughts and prayers are with Eric, Dimitri, family and friends.
God bless!

Eric and Dimi:

I was so sorry to learn of Patti’s passing. Although I met her only a couple of times, I know that she was a very devoted wife and mother and that she fought a very courageous battle against a terrible illness.

May her memory be a comfort to you both in all the days to come.
