Patricia was a devote Catholic in every sense of the word. She was strict and strong in her faith. Raising her children was her number one priority and she always made sure they never went without. She was always busy making sure everything was taken care of and her home was exquisitely tidy. She was straight-forward in her mannerisms but always made her family feel safe and loved. She was a wonderful wife and took pride in caring for her husband. Patricia enjoyed crafting, artistry, bowling, fishing, and boating. She had a love for lady bugs. She will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
