Member of Prince of Peace Catholic Church where she was a member of the choir. She served the community as a member of the Board of Elections. Patsy spent many years as a personal care aid providing assistance and support to many making it possible for them to remain in their homes. A giving person by nature, she enjoyed cooking and baking and sharing these treats with others. Patsy loved shopping on QVC, playing the lottery, traveling with her husband and family members, with Las Vegas being a favorite destination. She did everything with a purpose and enthusiasm especially for her family which brought her the most joy by far. Time spent with her children and grandchildren was always her priority and her family gatherings and holiday meals were “over the top” as only she could do.

Dan and Family.  Jack and I are so sad for your loss. Patsy was so full of life and such a joy!  She was our angel for many years helping Edna and Eleanor.  She was always helping others and thought of them first.  We are so sorry to hear that Patsy suffered and hope she is finally at peace.  You all are in our thoughts and prayers now and always!
