  1. Pat was a kind and talented lady. Some of my children had her as an art teacher at LZHS. I have art projects she supervised in my home still. To her family – I am very sorry for your loss.

  2. Patti was the most non-critical person I ever had to pleasure to know. She loved to travel and I had the pleasure of vacationing with her many times. I am so happy to have known Pat and to witness her kind spirit. I learned so much about acceptance from her. My sincere condolences to Ed and to her siblings.

  3. I met Pat through my sister Kari a very long time ago. Pat was always cheerful, kind, and had a zest for life and travel. She will be truly missed. Our thoughts are with Ed and the family. Rest In Peace Pat.

  4. Pat and I met doing our Masters! Debbie Finato and I were instrumental in fixing Pat up with Ed! Pat was at my son Judes homebirth and was his godmother! We camped, rode her horse, painted with the kids, decorated cupcakes, swam at their pool and celebrated all the graduations!! We danced together at Jude and Ericas wedding! Sadly, I thought Pats health was improving in Myrtle Beach and I’m heartbroken to learn she passed. May God hold Pat in his gentle embrace!! I’m lighting a candle for you and keeping you in my heart and prayers!! ❤️

  5. I met Pat when we were getting our Masters Degree. Debbie Finato and I helped fix Pat up with Ed – who became her loving husband! Pat was at my son Jude’s homebirth and became his godmother. We went camping, rode her horse, decorated cupcakes, painted pictures, and celebrated all the birthdays and graduations! We danced at Jude’s wedding! And more recently at his brothers wedding. I know Pat and Ed enjoyed their winters in Myrtle Beach! I am shocked and saddened to learn she passed on to heaven! I’ve lit a candle for the brightness we lost in your laugh Pat! My deepest condolences are with Ed and your family! I keep you in my heart and prayer! May God hold you in His gentle embrace!

  6. My condolences to Edward, Barbara, and James. Pat was a good friend all through high school. Her humor and laughter was infectious, and she’d use funny retorts, sometimes including dance steps, that we’d use almost as a silly code between our group. I still find myself saying, “Surely you jest,” and picture Pat making her ‘face’ as she said it. I’m so happy she was able to have fun doing a lot of travelling, Ireland was one place we talked of visiting. Pat’s beautiful smile was genuine like her friendship, and I regret all the time I put work ahead of getting together, as time passes so quickly. She will always be in my heart.
