Pat had a great zest for life, she was a practical joker, always having fun and enjoyed everyone’s stories. Pat always had the coffee on, cards out and her home was always open to everyone, where her friends and family would gather around the kitchen table, laughing and sharing stories.
Pat was a great cook who prepared endless meals for all those who visited. Pat loved gardening, camping out west, enjoyed time quadding sitting around the campfire and especially loved listening to the kids sing and play music. Most importantly Pat was a loving wife, caring mother, loving grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. Pat brought smiles to the faces of many and through her compassion, kindness and generosity many lives were enriched and made easier.
