How blessed we were for Uncle Norman to have found such a beautiful and loving person to bring into our lives. Pat’s warmth and humor made all those around her feel loved and happy. Her laugh and mischievous giggles were the best. She was the heart of the family and I will miss her very much. Love Donna

To Pat's family and loved ones, I wish to give you all my deepest sympathies for your great loss.
It is also a great loss for us, at Immaculate Conception Parish. She was very much a part of our church family. I only knew her for a few years but she made everyone feel very welcomed and treated people like you were friends for many years. She was very much a jokester and always had a smile on her face whenever I saw her. She and I, along with many others from the church belonged to a sewing/knitting group, Mary's comfort quilts. She will very much be missed by us all, we will keep you in our prayers as well as her in our hearts. May God bless you all.
