Not sure what to say?

Pat and I were in a warm water aerobics class at Arbor Acres and Salemtowne. At our first meeting she said, "I believe that we purchased daylillies from your Husband, Mr. Warren in Pfafftown". I later found a listing made by my husband of plants purchased by Pat Whisnant. She and I had many good conversations during our aerobics classes. She shared her illness and faced it bravely. A lovely person.

Our sympathy to the family of Pat. She was a member of our Sunday School Class. She will be missed. Heaven must have rejoiced when she entered.

My son attended preschool at Ardmore Baptist Church. Pat Whisnant was a wonderful teacher .
I am grateful for the years he had there and the attention she gave all the children.

Our sympathies are with you in this difficult time. Hal & I wish we’d had the opportunity to get to know Pat when we all lived in WS. She sounds way cool & and we could all use a dose of her optimistic spirit.

My sincere condolences in loss of your mom. Pat was instrumental in my 30 year public school teaching career here in Winston. I started at Forsyth Tech in the mid 80’s in Early Childhood Education. Your mom placed me in public school for several practicum classes. She told me I belonged in the classroom and I found out quickly that she was right! I will always be grateful to her for what she saw in me. I’m still teaching and have touched many student’s and families lives thanks to her....

Pat was very supportive of me in my career as an Early Childhood educator. I was new to the field in 1979 at the Career Center. Pat reached out to me to offer her expertise and help. She was a dedicated advocate for the care and education of young children. Within that role she was a leader in the community. I have no doubt that Pat influenced many teachers in our community through her teaching and advocacy.

Pat was a wonderfully well-educated, living human being. She meant so much to me after we met at Ardmore. We shared really good times together with others in the widows group there. I will miss her and her joyous spirit and love of music.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Pat was always so friendly to our family. So many good memories of a special lady at Ardmore.
