All who met Pat were lucky if they had a glimpse of that warm smile or the chance to hear her infectious laugh. My sincere sympathies to the entire Byers family and all those who hold Pat dear in their hearts.

Pat was truly one of a kind. Just read that even as a teenager she would be nice to the little kids in the neighborhood. She was so caring and compassionate. She could make us all laugh like no one else could. Pat was definitely one of the funniest people I know. Love her like a sister. Praying that God gives the Byer family the strength to get through this difficult time.

My family and Patty's family were neighbors growing up on Venango street. Patty was several years older than me but I remember her being so funny and outgoing. Our families would go on picnics several times every summer at Neshaminy State Park. I remember sleeping over their house and her being so nice to me, even though I'm sure I annoyed her as she was a teenager when I was a little girl. I remember her playing games with all the younger kids on the block and celebrating birthdays and holidays with her family. To Pattys family I'm very sorry for your loss. And thought of her often throughout the years. I stayed in touch with Mark and would always ask about his brothers and sisters. I also remember going to her house a few times after she got married. I think that I went with her mom, another wonderful lady.

You were so loved by everyone you came in contact with. Every time you brought a patient up to our unit, you would have the funniest stories for me about one of your grandkids.
You will be soulfully missed!!!

Family... Although no words of sympathy can ease the loss you bear, I’m praying that time will gently soothe you sadness into peace.

The time we have here is never enough... we will see you again.

Ms. Pat was one of the biggest reasons I used to go down to visit the ER. I used to work down there and I swear I would get so happy if I got to work a shift with her. When I first started at Elkins 5 years ago I came in little innocent jenny, aka Sue's daughter and I swear Ms. pat used to shield my ears every time she talked because she thought she was a bad influence on me. The whole shift would be filled with laughter whenever Ms. Pat worked. Even if I came to work grumpy or sad she would make sure to have me smiling in just seconds of seeing her. there was never a day she didn't talk about her family or show me one of the grandkids on facetime. Ms. pat was everyone's cool work mom. She will be beyond missed. My heart is filled with sadness but I will hold on to the million of memories we're all blessed with. Sending love and prayers to her family, and to her enormous work family as well. we love you so much Ms. Pat

If you spent any amount of time with Pat, you knew 2 things... her love of her family and her passion for being a nurse. She was undoubtedly proud of both! She was the ultimate mom - to her family and in our department.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and co-workers who all loved her dearly and feel her loss.

She was one of a kind and I will miss her so much.

Patty Cook. That is how I knew you when we first met. Your family lived next door to my Pop Pop. Your whole family called him Pop Pop and he loved you like his own grandchild. Although at times I remember him saying , that girl may be trouble😂. I looked up to you then , thinking you were so cool. And then Pop Pop passed and I didn’t see you until about 17 years ago. I was working at Elkins and saw you in the ER and said Patty Cook and you said it’s Byers now. I told you who I was and we hugged! I am so grateful we got to reconnect. You always made me laugh and you were such a great nurse. You cared about everyone, but especially your children! You will be missed more than you will ever know! Until we meet again, goodbye Angel Pat❤️


I love you, Mom. Love, your Pooh Bear. ❤
