During her younger years, Patricia worked at Alex’s Pizza at New Philadelphia and also as a supervisor at the former K-Mart Store at New Philadelphia.  She enjoyed sewing and crocheting as well as baking for her family and friends.  Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family at her home on the lake.

Terry & family....I never met your mother but I am glad to see you had many years to make memories. God bless your family.

I will always remember, how welcome I always felt in their homes. On 6th St. when we were kids, and at Atwood these past many years. Pat and Jack always made me feel like part of the family, just another brother. You will miss them, of course, but you'll be grateful every day, for the parents we've had. You may not be able to see them and touch them anymore, but believe me when I tell you, they will always be with you.
