Pat was a beloved mother and grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and longtime devoted wife of a railroader. She loved shoes and enjoyed reading horoscopes and obituaries. Pat also enjoyed gardening and driving and she had a calendar in every room. Pat was a great cook that never used a recipe. She loved going to the casino to play slots, but when she couldn't get there, she would play slots on her IPad. Even as early as September, Pat traveled to Las Vegas with her daughter, Diane for her 90th birthday exclaiming, "I'm Free as a Bird!"
