In addition to providing for family and friends, Patricia loved traveling, whether to the ocean or the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee where she felt close to God, she enjoyed the beautiful scenery which both provided. Patricia also valued time spent with her dogs, liked watching the Food Network and was a big Paula Dean fan. Earlier in life, she liked playing bingo at Holy Trinity where she was a member of the parish.
