She was born on "Groundhog Day," February 2, 1927 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Soon after she met her future husband, Bob Weber, on a blind date. They married and moved to CA in 1953, then, following Bob's career in the car industry, they made their final move to Phoenix in 1957. Pat loved her home of 50+ years in Biltmore Heights where she raised her family and grew beautiful roses in her garden. She was a devout Catholic who prayed, attended Mass and lived her faith daily. In 1973, at age 50, she returned to ASU and received her BSN. She worked for Maricopa County in South Phoenix as a Public Health Nurse, Charge Nurse in the Maternal and Child Health Clinic and in administrative positions for 21 years, from 1973-1994. After retirement she returned to ASU, to earn her Certificate in Gerontology. She volunteered and served on the board of the AZ State Public Health Association, The Children's Defense Council, Mental Health Guild, Beatitudes Center DOAR, CODAMA and many others.
