A smile, a hug and a real interest in you ... that is what you got from Miss Pat when you first walked in the doors at church.

A smile, a hug and a warm welcome is what we felt when Cliff married her "daughter from another mother", Robin.

What a very special woman and what an honor to have known her!

Memories are the legacy of God's love. I have so many great memories of a lovely woman welcoming people to church on Sunday mornings, visiting the sick, and being so active in so many ministries of the church. We can find comfort in knowing that she now rest in the arms of Jesus. To Tom and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May your faith carry you through this sorrowful time.

Pat was a special lady in our lives. She made our family feel so welcomed when we joined VBFWBC. We enjoyed many meals together at our church and special times after church at Village Inn. She was a hard worker and definitely had a servants heart. She was certainly the best example of a Deacons wife I’ve ever known. I enjoyed our talks. She will be missed and leaves a hole in many lives
