Pat loved to play card games like Euchre, Hand and Foot, and especially Texas Hold ’Em and she was always very lucky. Pat was very talented in sewing and cake decorating and made many dresses and cakes for friends and family. Pat loved to cook and try new recipes and had several often-requested desserts that she was famous for and they were always amazing. In her later years Pat loved to play Bingo at the nursing home and she was always excited to win a prize or two so that she could give them to her granddaughters.

Pat was a kind and loving person who always enjoyed time with family. She loved to attend family cookouts and to spend time at flea markets looking around for the best deal.
