Pat was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother, with a quiet but wry sense of humor. Pat was the eldest of the family and her sisters fondly remember all the special things she did for them over the years. Pat was known affectionately as “Grandma Pat” to all the extended families and circle of friends. Pat had many interests. She was an avid needle pointer, gardener and bird enthusiast. Pat loved her crafts too: ceramics, china painting, sewing and doll making.
In her professional career, Pat worked for various companies as a clerk, credit manager, and bookkeeper including her former husband’s dental practice. She was also an active homemaker involved in bridge clubs and Rotary events. She then became a dedicated paraprofessional and school office secretary for twenty years for the Adams County 12 Five Star Schools in Colorado.
