Patricia was an avid bridge player and went twice a week to the Bridge Center to play. She enjoyed reading, loved to get-out-and-go as she was a very social butterfly.

Most of all she loved and cherished her husband, grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She was proud of her family…all of them. She praised her grandchildren whenever she had a chance to brag on them.
