Pat was a faithful wife and mother who devoted her life to her faith, family and church. Pat was known for her amazing love for others, her generous spirit and her wonderful sense of humor. The epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman, her greatest legacy was her family. Everyone that she knew loved her for her selfless, unconditional love. We are thankful that she has now been reunited with her beloved husband who preceded her in death two years ago.
