She graduated from Corona High School in 1954 and attended University of San Diego and also University of Loma Linda at the La Sierra campus, where she received her teaching degree. She settled in Norco on Corona Avenue in 1960 where she resided until her death.

She worked in a variety of roles in the district throughout her long career, including teaching in the Gifted program, becoming principal at Norco Elementary, and opening the new Foothill Elementary School in Corona.

Pat and George loved to travel, spending time visiting many of our national parks - especially Utah - as well as spending time abroad in England, Europe, China, Russia, and the beautiful country of Switzerland, which they visited several times. Pat also loved to shop for clothes and passed that trait on to her granddaughters who loved going shopping with grandma.
