Mrs. Cover was a life-long member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church of Hanover. Over the years, Pat served on various committees as well as serving as a volunteer receptionist in the church office. Pat was also a member of the National AARP. She was proud of the fact that she was a member of a monthly card club that has been in existence for 40 years, as well as a card club that she joined more recently, but of which she became just as fond. Pat retired in 2007 from Bookspan of Hanover after following several years of service. In her free time, Pat enjoyed reading, cooking, and baking, as well trips with family and friends to the beach.
