  • I knew Pat over a bridge table at the Newark Senior Center, and the many luncheons she and daughter Sally organized. My sincere condolences to the family. She will be missed.

  • I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I did not know your loved one personally, but I do know the pain of losing a loved one in death.

  • We are very sad about the lost of our very dear family friend Pat. She was always a bright and positive influence on our lives and the life-long friendship she had with our mom was very special. I will always remember her quick wit and tell it like it is attitude. There was never a time that she visited that she didnt make us laugh and feel gratitude for our friendship. We hope she is with mom now enjoying tea, sandwiches, and apple pie. Sending lots of love and support to Sally, Carl, Mark and Susan, Don and their family. Family meant everything to Pat and you were all a great source of happiness and comfort to her. We are very sorry for everyone’s loss. Love always, Julia, Sean, and Ava Kelly
