She attended Huntley Project schools and graduated in 1980. Pat married Randy Becker and later divorced. They had one son, Michael. She then married David Rich, and together they own PBR Enterprizes in Ballantine.

She was a member of the Ballantine 5Cs and the VFW Post 7407 Auxiliary of Worden.
Her family came above all else. Pat loved gardening, cooking, her cats and reading. The year before she got sick she took up belly dancing. She was always lending a helping hand to someone.
