She made a home in each of these places, finding new friends and appreciating the unique treasures and opportunities each had to offer. Pat’s greatest characteristics were listening, laughter and her love for dogs. She was the best listener; giving you her undivided attention and probing questions to help you process.

Rarely without a dog in her house, Pat had a special fondness for Golden Retrievers often rescuing them and giving them a new safe home.Honoring Pat’s values, there will not be a service.
