My deepest condolences to the family. I work at thyssenkrupp Elevator, and whenever I visited the office in Frisco, Pat would be greeting me with her kind smile and with her positivity. I always enjoyed our conversations as I could feel a warmth and kindness in Pat’s words. Pat found a way to make me see sunshine when the sky of life seemed grey that day. Thank you, Pat for the goodness that you enriched our lives with. My thoughts and prayers are with you and with your family.

My condolences to the family at this time of loss. Pat was a great person to work with at TKE. Every morning arriving at work Pat was there at the front desk...Good Morning Pat!, I'd say. Loved the homemade goodies she'd bring to work on holidays and special occasions. It's was always nice visiting with her throughout the work day.

On behalf of our entire family, thank you so much for the sweet memories and kind messages you have left about our mom. Everyone knows she is the kindest, most selfless person in the world. We find strength in reading your stories, so thank you for sharing them (the cat story was my cat and I remember her telling me all about it 😂. She was so frustrated but so thankful for your help Tisa ❤️). We know she is with Jesus today having the best time, but we ache for her down here. She truly loved each one of you! God bless you all.

I was so sad to hear of Pat's passing. She texted the week before looking forward to retiring.
She had a way of bringing people together. She faithfully planned our TKE Women's get togethers after work.
She was a blessing to work with. She never seemed discouraged, was a team player and always looking for more ways to be of assistance.
Above all else, she loved talking about her kids and grandkids. She treasured them.
She always had a kind word for everyone.
