Pat was a great mentor—I learned so much from her in my early days as an L&D nurse at MCP. Later on, when Jane joined us on the night shift crew, we made so many fun memories together—I actually looked forward to going to work!! Georgette was a wonderful part of that, too. In addition to Pat’s amazing chocolate chip cookies, I have fond memories of her bringing in warm bread from her bread machine—I kept a lot of her bread machine recipes. She also inspired me to take up and enjoy counted cross stitch. Most of all, Pat had a kind and caring heart. She was a great nurse and a wonderful friend. I’m blessed to have known her….

Laura we are so sorry for the loss of Pat. She was a wonderful person. At every party we attended Susan and I could not wait to seek you and her out to hear about your latest traveling adventure. She had an infectious smile and was a walking history book! We learned so much of the world through her. You will be in our prayers this Sunday.

I am a cousin of Pat's and remember visiting her family in Nanticoke. Such fun!
My mother used to tell the story of trying to wade through the crowds of V-E Day celebrants with her Aunt Teresa as Pat chose that happy day to be born.
One of my most grateful memories is that of Pat and Laura opening there home to me and my toddler Lisa so we could be close to Valley Forge Army Hospital where my husband was a patient and I had to find an apartment.
Love you Pat. Miss you.
