Pat was a truly kind human being. In addition to her warm, loving spirit, Pat was known for her quick wit, generosity, and ability to find four leaf clovers. For many years, Pat was an elementary school teacher and took special joy in teaching children to read. After retirement, she continued to work with children as a substitute teacher, guest reader, and tutor. Her patient, gentle ways brought out the best in not just children, but in all of us.
