Patricia, without question, was a family oriented woman. She loved family gatherings and everyone always looked forward to her home cooked meals. She enjoyed traveling, especially her annual trip to Florida during the winter months where she spent time with wonderful friends.

When the kids grew up and started their own families, Patricia’s next devotion in addition to her sons and daughters, were her grandchildren. Nana would never miss any of the grandkids activities such as sports games, recitals and the track meets.
