Pat’s grandkids were her world. She loved to spend time with them and cherished the moments they had together. Allison and Tyler meant the world to her and she loved them dearly.
Nothing was more important to Pat than family. She cherished the times when we would all get together for holidays, birthdays or just for a quick weekend. She loved to laugh and would often laugh at the most inappropriate times. You didn’t want to get hurt around her – because she would surely give you a chuckle.
She was so thankful for her church family. Her Sunday school class meant the world to her as did the bazaar ladies. She participated as she was able and was so thankful for being part of both
She had a very special group of friends that she cherished so much. These ladies would take her out and watch out for her all the time. They would include her and laugh with her. She (and we) appreciate you all so much!
Mom was at home at the beach. She loved to be by the ocean and really relaxed there. She was a fan of late afternoon on the beach and would sit until we told her to come in. She enjoyed the time there so much.
Thank you for your calls and attention during this time. We are heartbroken but will have a laugh as I’m sure mom would want us to.
