Patricia had many passions. An accomplished equestrian, she had a great love of horses, adored the glamour of ice skating, and had a need for speed watching NASCAR. Patricia's favorite time of year was Thanksgiving, when, along with her husband and daughters, she would spend time in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they celebrated their wedding anniversary on Thanksgiving day.
