Patty was a devoted military wife and a career civil servant for the United States Air Force (USAF) and Department of Defense (DOD). She retired from the DOD after 20 years of service as a Finance Analyst. She loved her job and her duties took her to many exotic places such as Greenland, Australia, Europe, Asia, Panama and many more. Patty received numerous awards both from the USAF and the DOD.
When not traveling on the job, her passions were cooking, baking, traveling in the RV, reading a good book and spending time with her grandchildren. She loved to tailgate at Air Force Football games and especially loved to travel in the RV to away games with special friends.
