  • I can remember so many good times spent with Patty over the years not only at work but doing some of the things she loved bowling, golf and traveling she will be remembered and my condolences go out to Jerry and her family

  • Still reeling from the news of Pat’s death! There are so many wonderful things to say about her. She was a true friend and confident! She did love her job at St. Mark’s HS and was great at it. The students loved her, as well. She was tough but understanding when problems popped up. She had a kind heart, especially when it came to her kitties! She had a love of animals and it showed every time Jerry came home from work and there was another “abandoned” kitty there to say hello to. Pat had a beautiful smile and a very distinctive laugh recognized by everyone who loved her. I will miss her. Pat actually made this world a better place simply by being in it. Rest in Peace, my friend!
