I have always admired Pat for her faith, love for immediate and extended family, and hard work. She had an infectious laugh and loved to socialize with friends and travel. Pat and husband, Bill, had a welcoming home and a family gathering wasn't complete without their presence. Thank you for being a special "big sister". Love, Marcia.

Pat was always so positive and optimistic-perfect sister. She also had the wisdom to choose Bill, who we all loved. All in all we will miss her so much. We are less without her.

Pat was a very kind, thoughtful and loving sister-in-law. She and her husband Bill always welcomed me and my husband, her brother Bob, into their home when we visited Texas. She always remembered us on birthdays and other special occasions and I will always remember her.
