I adored my Aunt Pat and loved spending time with her. Growing up, I would always find a way to sit next to my Grandma Mary Lou, at parties so I could listen when she was visiting with her sisters, including Aunt Pat-it was the best seat in the house. One summer, I got to spend a month with Aunt Pat and Uncle George while my parents were out of town and they treated me like an honorary Granddaughter - it was the best. Aunt Pat hosted my baby shower when I was expecting Anna and made everything so lovely. I know she is dancing and partying in Heaven with her siblings. her son and her Grandchildren, but I will miss her. Love-Mike, Lisa, Anna and Alison

Pat and George were wonderful colleagues of the Sisters. I remember Pat's pleasant and competent presence with us. May she now enjoy new life with God.

As soon as I saw Pat's name I remembered her working with the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word back in the 70's and 80's. She was very kind and classy as well as efficient. George also worked with us around the same time. They were a great team. My sprayers and sympathy to George and all the family in this time of loss.

I will always remember growing up across the street from Pat and George. I loved visiting them and playing with their grandkids. Heaven has a new angel. Love and miss you, Pat.

I was so blessed to have had an amazing mema. Who was patient, kind, loving caring, hard working, had the biggest heart, best smile, who could out last anyone on the dance floor, I could just go on and on. She is missed more than anyone could know. But I know she's watching over us and making sure we take care of my grandpa.

Aunt Pat was a jewel and We Loved Her to the end of the world. She was a very special Lady and will be missed by all. She is now with the angels. She was My God Mother and watched over Me my whole life and I loved Her for that.

Hi Barnas family! I remember about 25 years ago I was just waking up from my first night in my new home on Edison Drive. Across the street on her porch was Pat Barnas yelling hi neighbor and she has been just that ever since a loving, caring, compassionate creature and devout Catholic. God bless Pat and George.
