It is with strong emotions our family learns of Pat's passing. Our family owes a debt of gratitude to Pat. The fun and steady giving of self to her family and many students who touched her life are the gifts she gave us.
The little school we were part of changed many lives. She and others taught the values of right vs wrong mixed with self esteem as a result of many accomplishments.
Her gift is still alive and well in many of our lives.
