Early in their marriage they lived on Walker Farms in Windsor, Ontario where Ray was General Manager. They were residents of Windsor, Ontario and Marentette Beach, Leamington, Ontario all of their married life. Her beloved Ray passed away in 1996, just short of their 50th wedding anniversary.

She taught Home Economics at the former St. Mary's academy for several years. She was involved in the PTA of the Windsor schools her children attended and she was a member of the Catholic Women's League, American Women's Club, and active in the Hotel Dieu Women's Auxiliary. For many years Pat and Ray divided their time between Marentette Beach, Leamington, Ontario and Bayside Estates, Ft. Myers Beach, FL. Pat continued to remain active in both communities and worked enthusiastically on many creative projects such as oil painting and crafts. In 2002 Pat became a full-time resident of Ft. Myers, Beach and in 2007, daughter Ann moved her to an assisted living facility in Orlando, FL where she could be closer to her. In 2008 Pat moved again to a Springhills Assisted Living facility in Lake Mary, FL where her daughter Ann cared for her until her death. The family is very thankful for the kind and loving community provided by the staff and residents of Springhills and for the care from Vitas Hospice in the last few months.
