Heaven has gained another Angel.
I know many are hurting and tears will be shed. Death is so hard. I remember the last conversation I had with Pat at Kanes birthday party.We starting talking about friends, she told me she missed all her friends and how most have them had passed already.
I hope your up there having a blast with all your friends and loved ones. You will be missed. RIP PAT

I was fortunate enough to know Pat through my niece Tina and her hubby George. Pat loved her family more than life itself. Pat always had warm and friendly words for those in her company. A true lovely and caring person. Pat is a mammoth loss to all who knew and loved her. REST IN PERPETUAL PEACE SWEET PAT.

I’ve so many memories, fond memories, of Pat over the last 41 years we’ve been friends. To my family and I Pat was home. No matter how long it had been since the last visit she’d greet us as if we’d just been there. She was always glad to see us and we could sit down and talk for hours with lots of laughter in the mix. If we were having a drink we’d always end up out on the balcony where Pat could look down and survey her little Kingdom of Teesdale Place. Pretty soon the music wold be put on, friends dear to us all would pop in and we’d end up having an unscheduled kitchen party. Before long I’d hear those words...” alright everybody quiet down , Betty’ s gonna sing Welfare Mother for us” . It was a statement always, never a request, and so it began. I’d be reluctant at first but she’d finally wear me down and I’d sing the song she loved so well. After that the evening would progress with song after sing into the wee hours. It was absolutely wonderful!
It wasn’t just the good times Pat was there through, there was the really bad times too. For example, they say the police came to my door to notify me that my twin brother had been found dead as the result of an apparent suicide. It was Pat who accompanied me to the morgue to identify his body. She was a tower of strength g go or me and my daughter through that whole ordeal. If my memory is correct I believe it was Pat who went to my workplace and passed the hat around for a collection for me towards the funeral costs. And it was Pat who at the time having not even met me yet went with our friend Irene and knocked on doors on a long ago Christmas Eve on every floor of the building to ask for donations of any kind to help a young mother with two little girls because they had nothing for Christmas— no tree, no toys or gifts, no turkey dinner, nothing. The only furniture we had were our beds. Thanks to Pat & Irene my girls woke up to a tree, gifts and a Christmas dinner seated at their tables. That is Pat defined.

Sorry to hear of Patricia's passing. I will always remember the conversations we shared at gatherings at Tina and George's. She was always so welcoming and treated me like family. She will surely be missed. My condolences to all the family.
