Richard and I want to express our deepest sympathy to Pat's family. From the time Kyle and Julie announced their engagement, Pat made us feel like we were all one family. She was a very kind, generous and loving mother and "peanut" to her grandchildren. Pat was always ready to pitch in and help out however she could. She was always joyful and filled the house with laughter. She will be missed by all who were blessed to know her.

I love you all and will always have happy memories of the good times we had. RIP Pat Jarma you were definitely one of a kind. ♥️🙏

Most of my childhood and teenage memories include Pat. We were neighbors and went through elementary, junior high and high school together. We had lots of sleepovers, hung out at the Chuck Wagon and danced at Tom Sefcik’s with boys our mothers wouldn’t have approved of. After we both married and lived in separate cities, we kept in touch but didn’t see each other except at class reunions. A group of “girls” who had grown up together began to meet in Temple once a year and the YaYa’s were born. My friendship and love for Pat spanned six decades and my life was enriched by having known her. Our times together were precious and I will miss her.
